April 1st: The Day of Extinction Rebellion’s Great Civil Disobedience Uprising

Guest essay by Eric Worrall

h/t Dr. Willie Soon; Mark April 1st in your diary as the day everything changes: Inspired by Suffragettes, Ghandi and Martin Luther King, Extinction Rebellion has announced their intention to recruit 2.3 million non-violent climate activists, to force real climate action.

Extinction Rebellion say they will mobilise 2MILLION protestors to take part in ‘largest act of civil resistance in UK history’ starting in April

  • Extinction Rebellion says it wants to recruit 3.5% of UK population to its cause
  • Group says its activity slowed during pandemic but targets 2022 for a comeback
  • XR wants to mobilise the ‘largest act of civil resistance in UK history’ next April

By KATIE FEEHAN FOR MAILONLINE

PUBLISHED: 00:37 AEDT, 24 November 2021 | UPDATED: 03:33 AEDT, 24 November 2021

Extinction Rebellion has pledged to mobilise two million protestors to launch what it says will be ‘the largest act of civil resistance in UK history’ in April next year.

The environmental campaign group made the pledge today after criticising this month’s climate summit, claiming it did not go far enough to tackle the crisis.

The group said that the number of activists taking part in their demonstrations had dwindled during the pandemic but that they hoped to rely on record numbers in 2022. 

In a video which draws on images of the Suffragettes, Ghandi and Martin Luther King, XR spokesperson Nuala Gathercole Lam calls for action and says: ‘When millions of people come together to demand change, governments have no choice but to act. 

‘This is what’s needed now. Let’s do what works – prolonged, disruptive, non-violent civil resistance.’

My question: Given Extinction Rebellion’s unfortunate experience last time they tried to mingle with normal people, will the recruitment drive include East London? Or will they stick to recruiting from their base of posh upper middle class elitists?

Another higher quality video is available here.

Update (EW): Extinction Rebellion’s April Uprising Announcement. They forgot to mention the date of the uprising in the video, but you can see it in the video description.

Someone needs to be nearby handing out “Ban Dihydrogen Monoxide Now!” protest signs and buttons to those gullible kids.

That would be fun to have hundreds of those sprinkled through the crowd and the kids would think they were helping to save the earth.

It’s a sad reflection on the intelligence of today’s youths that I can believe such a troll actually would be successful.

Three problems:

1) You just gave away the plan
2) No Bolshevik/Ingsoc media types would allow any embarrassing pictures to leak out even if they fall for it,
and
3) Any independent observer pictures would be labeled as falsified (& thought crime) by the Ministry of Truth “fact” checkers

Not to mention that surely it’s a hate crime to ridicule XR yutes?

Nevertheless, I’m all for it. They seem so incompetent that even giving them four months warning they would probably still fall for it. It would be a hoot!

A few years ago there was a group petitioning to ban DHMO at a climate conference and they got quite a few signatures. I recall it was reported here.

At least one US City Council almost banned it, too.

With mass civil disobedience planned which will disrupt so many people’s lives, it’s time to proscribe XR and related organisations like IB. That way, any evidence that the ringleaders are active should lead to instant arrest and imprisonment and will prevent most of the action taking place. The membership will plummet too. Britain has been far too soft on these loony extremists for far too long.

Insulate Britain protester sets up CROWDFUNDER to help pay his rent while in jail

The sister of a blatant Insulate Britain eco-zealist imprisoned for helping to bring chaos to Britain’s roads has set up a crowdfunder to pay his £700 a month’s rent while he spends Christmas in prison.

Rebel carpenter Oliver Rock has been sentenced to four months in prison for being one of nine activists from the Extinction Rebellion offshoot group that took part in a protest on the M25 on 8 October. But 41-year-old Isabel Rock’s sister claims he has no savings and has set up a crowdfunder to pay his rent while behind bars.”

2.3 Million people is a lot.

They are asking for 3.4% of the population to protest.
It’s somewhat unlikely to happen.

They only need 10,000 to create a big problem, 3.4% is on the low side of any British polling for support, and they have the always future King and all the media on their side. It’s all they need to keep the political ball in play.

Their logic, so they say is that research has shown that whenever a cause attracts 3.5% support it has never failed.
I guess they can always ask the ipcc to calculate the numbers for them then they can claim 3.5% regardless of the actual numbers involved.

Over the past couple of days I spent almost 2 hours listening to Roger Hallam expounding how it will be possible to stop the climate crisis in six months.

Basically his idea boils down to getting several hundred people in prison. He thinks that this will have the same impact as the methods used by the suffragettes and those campaigning for civil rights in the USA. He recommends putting out lots of leaflets. 5,000 leaflets, he claims, will get 40-50 people to attend a meeting. At the meeting 4 people will commit themselves to getting arrested and 2 will go to prison. And this will stop the ‘climate crisis’. On the other hand, I watched a programme this afternoon called ‘Blitz on Britain’. I reckon that if Hitler couldn’t break the spirit of Londoners with thousands of bombs, their spirit is unlikely to be affected by blocking a few roads.
Hallam claims his methods will work in six months. So it will be interesting to see where we are in October next year.

When 1984 was written, back in 1948 remember, it was classed as a “science fiction novel about a dystopian future”.
Here we are in 2021 a mere lifetime hence and everything in that projection of the future is real. The social norms Orwell presented are here, Winston recognises things are not as they should be. I don’t want to blunt the ending for anyone that has not read it so I won’t go into detail. Suffice to say, the ongoing war that is a feature of the future seems dangerously close too.

XR’s demands:

https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2019/oct/08/what-are-extinction-rebellion-key-demands-climate-emergency

“What are Extinction Rebellion’s demands?The UK group has three core demands:
1) Tell the truth
The government must tell the truth about the scale of the ecological crisis by declaring a climate emergency, “working with other groups and institutions to communicate the urgent need for change”.
2) Net zero emissions by 2025
The UK must drastically cut its greenhouse gas emissions, hitting net zero by 2025.
3) Citizens’ assembly
The government must create a citizens’ assembly to hear evidence and devise policy to tackle the climate crisis.”

********

The British Parliament has already given in to XR’s 1st demand by declaring a climate emergency. That has not yet been done here in the U.S. that I know of.

If Parliament plans on caving to their 2nd demand, then I suggest that it pass a law which requires the phaseout of fossil fuels in Britain starting on 1 January next year. They still have time to pass the legislation by the end of this year.

When the British economy has collapsed by 2025 and you Brits are all starving to death and/or freezing in the winter cold, be rest assured that you are making those sacrifices for the climate emergency as required by XR.

The problem is when you are all starving and freezing, you probably won’t give a damn about what the climate is doing…..or isn’t doing. But I doubt if XR will care. What scares me is the prospect that it could happen here in the U.S. as well.

I rather like XR’s demands, if one makes a few minor revisions!
1. Tell the truth
Force the government to acknowledge that there is NOTHING dangerous or unprecedented about our current weather OR climate cycles!
2. Net Zero HARMFUL Emissions
Since CO2 isn’t harmful in ANY way until you reach levels that are far beyond our ability with present technologies, let’s concentrate on solving REAL pollution of our air and water!
3. Citizen’s Assembly
An assembly of citizens to hear about the waste, damage and destruction wrought by climate alarmists would be the first step to demanding repayment of monies fraudulently obtained! Maybe we could also go after the hucksters and charlatans that have pushed lockdowns and ineffective, leaky and improperly tested vexxines on humanity!

“A professor is advising Biden that the best way to unite the country would be to declare war on Republicans.”

From the article:

“Boston College professor Heather Cox Richardson told me, ‘Biden could easily declare war on the authoritarians threatening our democracy..”

************

Wars are meant to be won when fought. If we are to avoid the violence of war that these academic types are talking about, it is obvious that the Republican Party has to go. The party needs to be disbanded ASAP if they threaten democracy.

While they still are in control of the White House and have the majority in Congress, the Democrats need to pass legislation that outlaws the Republicans and authorizes law enforcement to lock them up if they threaten the power and control of the Democrats. Of course, to make this happen, the Dems must have a Constitutional Convention to rewrite the Constitution to fit their ideology and ensure their grip on power.

The main problem here is that this is how a civil war can start.

I trust I don’t need the sarc tag here.

What is this, What ‘real action’ can you do on weather let alone climate, which it’s patently obvious none of them knows what it really is anyway.

In fact, does ANYBODY really know what ‘climate’ is?

What do these people really want.
Really want

I refer yet again to the track ‘Loaded by Primal Scream’
Lyric:
Peta: Just what is it that you want to do?
Them: Well, we wanna be free, we wanna be free to do what we wanna do
And we wanna get loaded and we wanna have a good time

fine. right. OK.
Everyone wants that.
What do you want that’s different, what’s the fuss all about?

If you’re single these are great places to get a date. There’s a reason cults are so popular.

In my comment (under moderation) on the talk by Roger Hallam, he says he wants to recruit people who are willing to lose their jobs, their homes and their freedom. Whether he’s willing to join them he didn’t say. But he sounds a bit like a modern-day David Koresh. You have to feel sorry for the poor gullible souls he recruits to his cause.

Well, isn’t that clever of them? I can only wish a highly localized blizzard to inflict itself upon them, no matter where they are. 🙂

Practice sessions for April have been going on already – as this gif shows:

Here is another example of the how XR understand how the world works, or this case the force exerted by a fire engine hose. Who’d of thought it would be that strong? Also, listen to the ‘narrator’ who keeps going with his ‘message’ even though there isn’t anything of any substance.

People can be very badly hurt by one of those. Unfortunately none of them were.

Isn’t the First of April, April Fool’s Day. How Appropriate.

Once again, comparatively affluent people who have only known material comfort for most if not all of their lives without having to work particularly hard for it if at all arrogantly inflict their political vanity upon those who do have to work go get by.

Once America gets “Universal Basic Income”, it will be inflicted with this insanity everywhere as well.

Eric, that is not an unreasonable suspicion. Millions more than before have been relieved of the burden of having to work in order to sustain basic human needs. And what has happened subsequently was entirely predictable; inflation, degraded economic efficiency, and social unrest. Many will choose a lower standard of living in exchange for the luxury of unencumbered free time. And then many will use that time to complain about how they don’t have as much as others seem to.

After a period of time, the whole country will start to resemble Portland.

It’s fitting that they’ve chosen April 1 for this event because they’re fooling themselves by believing it will cause either governments, consumers, businesses or industries from taking any more climate action than they were before.

Also, while real world has – to our best knowledge – never nuked anyone, he never actually believed all the ‘People of Colour’ were equal and was, let’s be honest here, fairly racist.

Suffragettes used violence. Claiming them as role models is to play the Gender Card and wave ‘Woman’s Rights’ in people’s faces and ignoring the path they chose to take.

As for MLK? Again, quoting his name and ignoring his vision. Show me the parts in his vision where he called for smashing the state.

April 1st is well known to be All Fool’s Day. Good choice, ER!

2 Million? They will be lucky to get 2 thousand.

What a suitable date; the festival of ‘All fools’. Should we resurrect the French custom of sticking a paper fish (poisson d’avril) symbolising gullibility, upon the protestors backs?

Surely this is the true joke, XR/Insulate Britain plan to pull this on April Fools Day. The mugs that turn up to participate are being (remarkably easily) fooled by organisers who actually reject the notion of CAGW, by shepherding them into actively making the Climastrophic Message as deeply unpopular as possible.

Don’t get mad at these flockwits, shake them by the hand and congratulate them on making the general public even more disdainful of the Corporate BS CAGW message.

As if 2°C global warming, if it were to happen, would end life on Earth. Anything that XR calls the ‘truth’ is guaranteed to be false.
