The North is rebelling!

Northern Rebellion will take place on August 30th - September 2nd

XR groups from around the North will come together in Manchester for a peaceful, public uprising in our city centre between Friday 30th August and Monday 2nd September 2019.

You are all welcome, wherever you live, to come and join us in helping to spread the rebellion throughout the North. There will be training, talks, workshops, direct actions – big and small – as well as DJs, bands and performers.

We need you – whoever you are, however much time you have – to help build a powerful movement. Our vision of change involves mass participation. Together we’re unstoppable.

Be part of it


We are one of the largest Extinction Rebellion groups in the UK.

In support of the national XR movement we have three key demands.

Tell the truth

Tell the truth

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

Act now

Act now

The government must act now to halt biodiversity loss and reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2025.

Beyond politics

Beyond politics

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