Climate change is one of the main threats the world faces today.

The hands of the infamous Doomsday Clock now stand at just two minutes to midnight. They have never been closer. The atomic scientists who set the clock agree we face two existential threats: nuclear war and climate change – and the risk of disaster has never been greater.

Urgent action is needed but our government continues to prioritise war and weapons over the future of our planet.

XR Peace Rebellion

This is why CND has joined XR Peace – a coalition of organisations for peace and justice. As XR Peace, we will be holding one of the sites in the October Rebellion. This is a coming together of movements to resist the twin  threats of nuclear weapons and the climate emergency. Join us between October 7th-18th as we take part in the rebellion.

Event details

As we block the road we will have workshops, teach-ins and exhibitions, choirs, musicians, comedians, academics, story tellers and speakers making the links between nuclear weapons, militarism and the climate emergency. Come for a day or the whole two weeks. Rebel for Peace and the Planet.

XR Peace supporters will be blockading an area on the Embankment in London. If you would like to join the blockade, please bring a chair, piece of carpet, or anything to sit on while you’re in the road.

While the blockade is ongoing, there will be a series of speakers and workshops between 10am-12 noon and 2pm-4pm each day. Full line-up to be published soon.
