*** DATE CHANGE *** DATE CHANGE *** DATE CHANGE ***
~~~~~ Saturday afternoon 14th December – all ages end of year dance party starting in Forrest Place at 3pm with creative actions happening around it. ~~~~~~
This is an Emergency! Bushfires have been burning all month, we’ve been in drought all year, and the forecast is that things will only get worse as we head into summer. Australia is on fire, and extreme heat events are directly linked to the climate crisis, whether the government likes it or not.
This is a Party! On Saturday 14th December Extinction Rebellion WA creative affinity groups will be rolling out diverse actions through the city.
And for the first time in WA, we’re launching *** CIVIL DISCOBEDIENCE *** – a fiery, flashy dance mob rolling through the centre of town to pump out the truth about the climate crisis and have a blast while we do it. Come down and learn the moves at 3pm before we hit the streets.
If you’ve been waiting to find your niche in XRWA, the next fortnight is the time. Get spooky, get freaky, get festive, get fired up. This is the first full roll-out of XRWA’s autonomous, self-organising design.
If you’re not already in an Affinity Group, there are creative organising workshops at 6pm on Tuesday 3rd December and Tuesday 10 December at the Enkel Collective in Fremantle. Find your group or create one, and organise a theatrical, spectacular, disruptive display of public art to galvanise and inspire Perth into immediate climate action.
Civil discobedience training will be held at Replants in Fremantle at 3pm on Sunday 8th December – or just turn up at 3 pm on Saturday the 14th and learn the moves before we groove through town.
