It will start at 7 am on Friday 26th July, at Brighton main station, with a send-off for a local man arrested in April's International Rebellion in London, as he heads to court in the capital.
Later that day, at 6pm, a bike swarm will take place at The Level, in which a mass of cyclists will fill the city streets to raise awareness of the climate crisis and demand clean air to breathe.
On Saturday 27th July, there will also be the third of a series of divestment actions targeting the biggest fossil fuel investors in Europe, Barclays Bank.
The action will start with a bike swarm to the local branch in North Street where local rebels will then conduct a mass letter hand in to the branch manager, demanding the bank divest from fossil fuels.
On the same day, Extinction Rebellion Brighton will also be at the Brighton Yoga Festival at BHASVIC, from 1pm, creating an action in collaboration with Brighton Yoga Foundation – an exciting visual display of solidarity in the struggle to stop the climate crisis.
On Sunday 28th July, there will be a regenerative culture picnic and workshop at the Whitehawk Inn, Brighton.
This will be a chance for members of Brighton Extinction Rebellion – and anyone interested in the group – to recharge, refocus and reconnect.
Regenerative culture is central to Extinction Rebellion. It's about creating a reflective, resilient, compassionate and healthy new system that will allow both people and the planet to flourish.
Claudia Fisher says:
"Our rebellion grows every day. We're inundated with people joining us, resulting in packed weekends of actions and events, like this one.
"And this is just the beginning. There is so much more to come, because there is still so much more to do.
"The International Rebellion in April achieved huge things in terms of raising public awareness about the severity of the climate crisis that endangers us all.
"We are immensely grateful to – and proud of – the local rebels arrested in London. But the truth remains that none of our demands have been met.
"Our first demand, for the government and media to tell the truth, has not been met by parliament's declaration of a climate emergency.
"That is a positive development, but nowhere near enough. Too many people still don"t understand the danger we"re all in. This must be communicated to them through all arms of the government and across the media.
"Our other demands are for the government to set a 2025 target to reduce emissions to net zero and to set up a citizens" assembly to oversee the necessary changes.
"We will not stop until all this has been achieved. It's the only way to ensure a world fit for the generations to come."
Extinction Rebellion Brighton is the local branch of a rapidly growing global movement.
