What is XR?

Extinction Rebellion Australia (XR Aus) is part of a worldwide movement to halt mass extinction and minimise risk of social collapse.

We use civil disobedience to demand that our governments act now on the climate and ecological emergency. XR is non-violent. We act in full public view and take responsibility for our actions, supported by our principles and values.

A better, safer future for everyone starts here!

    Tell the truth

    Government must tell the truth by declaring a climate and ecological emergency, working with other institutions to communicate the urgency for change.

    Act now

    Government must act now to halt biodiversity loss and reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero and beyond as fast as humanly possible.

    Beyond politics

    Government must create and be led by the decisions of a Citizens’ Assembly on climate and ecological justice.
