Extinction Rebellion Australia

Saturday, 14 September 2019 - 12:00pm
Princes Bridge, St Kilda Road, Melbourne

On Saturday September 14 we will be blocking Princes Bridge in Melbourne for the day. This is an act of civil disobedience, to disrupt business as usual, and draw attention to the climate and ecological emergency we are facing and that the government is ignoring - endangering the lives of all of us, and all future generations of life.

All are welcome to be part of this, and we encourage everyone to volunteer. This will be a powerful, fun and peaceful disruption. It will demonstrate to Melbourne, to Australia and to the world that we are rebelling, and that this rebellion is for everyone.

This action will help build the movement and momentum towards the October 7 Spring Rebellion and beyond.

Extinction Rebellion is us and Extinction Rebellion is you. The success of this event and of this crucial movement relies on all of us. We have to act like the truth is real because no one else is.

We will hold the bridge from midday until 9pm, or until we otherwise decide, through People's Assemblies.

We expect a large number of arrests, however you do not need to risk arrest to take part. Police will ask you to move on before any arrest, so you can simply leave the bridge if you wish.

See you on the bridge!
