Dear Rebels 💚

@XRLiberation went live 13 days ago, in anticipation of the #InternationalRebellion in London.

We had some idea of what to expect, but also knew to keep our minds, eyes and ears open.

So, what’s next? For us... and also for you?

Our starting mandate was to listen. Really listen.

The activists in our collective come from diverse backgrounds and experiences, but have always known we could never speak for everyone.

So instead of rushing into presumptive solutions, we promised to hear people out first.

2/
We’ve done this by:

• talking to people out on sites
• following conversations here on Twitter
• asking anyone who has the time/energy/desire to email us and share their experiences.

It’s been humbling, enlightening, infuriating, inspiring.

💚 Rebels 📢

First weekend of the #InternationalRebellion is here and you may be wondering: “Are our actions on the streets enough to tip the scales?”

Honestly? 🚫 Mass civil disobedience on its own won’t achieve system change.

History (both distant and recent) tells us that we not only need a broad coalition of people, but also of tactics!

And no, that doesn’t just mean many different ways of shutting down the streets... though we have to give credit for the creativity where credit is due 😉

We’ve gathered some of the 🔑 ingredients necessary for making this moment a truly global movement that is for everyone, everywhere 🌎🌍🌏

(We’re sure to have missed loads of important stuff out, so please add your own examples to the thread!)

IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER 🥁🥁🥁

Good morning Rebellion 💚 We’ve got an incoming 🚨THREAD ALERT🚨 for you!

It takes courage to take to the streets and demand better of our government.

It also takes courage to sit down and listen when the activists whose shoulders we stand on demand better of us.

A massive thank you to @DrRHashem, @chilledasad100 and @bencsmoke for taking the time to visit the @GJRSite and talk to our Rebels about @XRebellionUK’s blindspots and shortcomings so far.

Listening to criticism is never comfortable, but...

2/
...then neither is living in the system which has for 500+ years edged our entire planet closer and closer to the point of no return.

And how can we possibly begin to dismantle something we don’t really know or understand yet?
