About

Extinction Rebellion Toronto is the Toronto chapter of the Extinction Rebellion movement. Extinction Rebellion is an international movement that uses non-violent civil disobedience to achieve radical change in order to minimise the risk of human extinction and ecological collapse. We have 3 demands.

TELL THE TRUTH Government must tell the truth by declaring a climate and ecological emergency, working with other institutions to communicate the urgency for change.

ACT NOW Government must act now to halt biodiversity loss and reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2025.

BEYOND POLITICS Government must create and be led by the decisions of a Citizens’ Assembly on climate and ecological justice. More info here.

EXTINCTION REBELLION EXPLAINED in ONE MINUTE TWENTY SIX SECONDS

Follow us on social media, come to events and say hello. We will add Orientation Sessions to the upcoming events as they are scheduled.


lAND ACKNOWLEDGMENT

We acknowledge that we meet, organize and protest upon the traditional territories of the Mississauga of the Credit First Nation, Anishnawbe, Haudenosaunee, Wendat, and Huron Indigenous Peoples. They are the original stewards of this land, as well as the original environmental activists, whose models of resistance we see reflected in our own activism. 

We operate on Treaty 13 land, which was defined during the Toronto Purchase claim of 1805. The Treaty indicates that Tkaronto is unceded, and has never been sold or agreed to be shared with settlers by the Mississaugas of the New Credit. The truth is that most of the area this city covers has been settled illegally and unjustly. We live, work and organize on stolen land, which was taken from Indigenous peoples against the spirit of peace, friendship and respect.

We recognize the violent history of this space, in which many of us are still benefactors. As activists, we aim to act responsibly and stand in solidarity with land and water defenders all across Turtle Island.
