What we're about

‘Extinction Rebellion is noodzakelijk. Het politieke establishement heeft gefaald in het beschermen van de mensen tegen vervuiling, het voorkomen van het massale uitsterven van soorten op de aarde en het mogelijke uitsterven van de mensheid in de nabije toekomst. Daarom moeten we rebelleren om het voortbestaan van burgers en onze natuurlijke wereld te garanderen of we verliezen alles wat we liefhebben.’

‘The Extinction Rebellion is a necessity. Our political establishment has failed to protect its people from pollution, prevent further mass extinction of species on earth and prevent the possibility of human extinction in the near future. Therefore we must rebel to protect the livelihood of citizens and our natural world, or risk losing everything we cherish. ’

Safe space event

Nieuwe Keizersgracht 1A

De Safe Space is open voor alle rebellen die behoefte hebben aan nazorg op vrijdag 18 oktober. Als je emotionele of fysieke stress ervaart over dat wat je hebt meegemaakt tijdens de Rebelweek, dan ben je heel welkom om te komen en hier contact over te maken. Je hoeft het niet alleen te doen. Signalen van stress zijn o.a. spanning en angst, verwarring, rusteloosheid, moeite met concentreren, boosheid, ongeloof, ontkenning, terugtrekken van anderen, verdriet, hopeloosheid, het gevoel geen contact te hebben met anderen of je verdoofd voelen. Dit is allemaal welkom in de Safe Space. Een team van therapeuten biedt individuele en groepssessies aan. Wat we je sowieso op deze momenten aanbieden, zijn stress release technieken. Die kunnen geleerd worden om stress te ontladen uit het lichaam. (Mensen uit het well being team die graag ook ‘dingen’ willen aanbieden zijn van harte welkom.) Locatie en tijd: vrijdag 18 oktober / Nieuwe Keizersgracht 1A, Amsterdam / 16:00 tot 21:00. Eten zal er zijn op de potluck manier, rond 18:00u. Dus als je kan en wil, neem wat eten mee. Kun je niet komen maar wil je wel? We gaan ook de komende vrijdagen deze Safe Space openen. Hou Meetup of Facebook in de gaten. En, je kunt ons altijd mailen voor info of om afspraak te maken voor een persoonlijke sessie (bieden onze therapeuten aan): [masked] We zien je in de Safe Space, of daarna wellicht op een andere plek. With love and rage, the XR-therapists. ——————————————————————————————— The safe space on will be open to all rebels who would like to experience some aftercare on Friday 18.10.

Some of the signs of stress include anxiety and fear, restlessness, confusion, difficulty to concentrate, anger, disbelief, denial, withdrawing from others, sadness, hopelessness, feeling disconnected or numb. All of this is welcome in the Safe Space. A team of therapists offer individual and group sessions. And we also will be teaching techniques to release stress and trauma in the body.

There will be a potluck, so please bring some food at 18:00 if you can. If not: no problem.

With love and rage, the XR-therapists.

Climate crisis: What's the situation and what can we do

Scientists agree. We are facing a climate and ecological crisis. Urgent action is required to mitigate the most catastrophic impacts. Extinction Rebellion (XR) is regulary organising talks about this crisis in Jansstraat 33. In the first part of the talk, we will talk about the science behind climate change, and the existential threat posed by the ecological crisis. In the second part, we will talk about how to deal with this terrifying reality, why we are taking action, and how you can become part of the movement for climate justice. Everyone is welcome to learn more about our non-violent civil disobedience movement. We demand that the government tell the truth about the climate and ecological crisis, take immediate action and empower citizens to decide on how to realise climate and ecological justice. For more information: https://extinctionrebellion.nl/ Everyone is welcome! Bring your friends, family, neighbours and peers! Schedule: 19:30 - Doors open 20:00 - Start of the Talk 21:00 - Discussion 21:30 - The end Location: http://jansstraat33.nl/

Speaker Training for the XR Talk (presentation)

Grand Café Utopie

"Do you want to learn how to give the talk? Or maybe you want a bit more practice? Let’s learn from each other! During this training, we will not go through the slides like in previous/other speakers trainings. We will be practicing and finetuning our presentation skills. How do you tell the scientific truth and how can you motivate people to join XR? We will learn by doing and by helping each other. We will also help you to find a speaker-buddy who you can give your first/next talk with. We intend to create a series of trainings in which you can keep improving your skills with every training you follow. After RWB, we expect lots of requests for giving talks all around the country. That is why we need an army of speakers. Come join us! If you want to read up beforehand on the speaker notes and/or want to see the slides of the ""Heading for extinction & what to do about it"", please contact us at [masked] and we will send it to you.
