Extinction Rebellion groups from five boroughs have announced plans for a north London uprising.

Rebels from Haringey, Enfield, Barnet, Islington and Camden will occupy the streets on September 7 and 8 to fight against climate inaction.

There will also be workshops, training and entertainment to celebrate the area's community spirit.

Jessica Peverell, a member of Extinction Rebellion Haringey, said: “The time to act on the climate is now, not tomorrow.

“We’re encouraging everyone- whether they’re part of Extinction Rebellion, or not- to join us in reclaiming the streets of North London in a sign of solidarity, and demand action on this climate catastrophe.

“The weekend’s events will be a mixture of fun, but also action, as we look towards the International Rebellion in October.”

Rosie-Lea Sparkle, a member of Extinction Rebellion Islington, said: “Since the International April Rebellion, there have been uprisings taking place all over the UK and around the globe, and these have been vital in continuing the momentum and keeping the climate and ecological emergency firmly in people’s minds.

“The North London uprising encompasses many actions that will speak the truth, encourage people to sign up and participate in the conversation.

“For new members it offers the chance to take their first steps in actions with XR, to get trained up and to learn XR’s values.; not just through a talk but through the experience of seeing how people can come together and create beautifully disruptive actions, while remaining peaceful.”
