Panel: Why Rebel?

In October Animal Rebellion takes to the streets in partnership with Extinction Rebellion as part of a growing Movement of Movements. We will explore with cofounders of both organisations why they are taking to the streets to protest; why stay there for days; and why they believe that mass movements and rebelling against the government are crucial to social change. We will also discuss their strategies; the successes and challenges of October’s rebellion; and what we can expect next from both groups.
