Act

 

Join the Rebellion!

The Rebellion is coming! Extinction Rebellion is holding a UK-wide Rebellion from 1st September. As part of this, Writers Rebel will be staging an action in London on the evening of 2nd September, with some fantastic high-profile authors speaking out at a literary event in the very heartland of climate denial. More details to be announced shortly via our newsletter.

For general information about the UK Rebellion click here. Receive announcements about UK-wide actions on the Rebellion Broadcast Telegram channel here. If you’re outside the UK, your local group can let you know about any planned national actions.

We’ll shortly be launching an exciting new Writers Rebel campaign aimed at the publishing industry! Watch this space and our newsletter for how to get involved!
