Tell the Truth! Day-after-day nonviolent protest against lies

October 10 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm PDT

Join Extinction Rebellion Seattle as we launch day-after-day nonviolent protests in Seattle starting Oct 3—and we set our mission on what is necessary.
(5pm weekdays–ends approximately 6pm
4pm weekends–ends approximately 5pm)
We Demand:
The government must TELL THE TRUTH about the climate and wider ecological emergency, reverse inconsistent policies, and work alongside the media to communicate the truth. The pattern of lies and undermining factual discourse that fossil fuel industry operatives have pushed into the media, and even academia, for decades established extreme dishonesty as normal in public discourse. It set the stage for fascist rhetoric to enter public discourse, because fascists rely on distrust of facts and the integrity of journalism. As we see fascists gain power and denounce the democratic process, we must act to protect the truth. We stand with all nonviolent allies who refuse to accept a fascist USA.
October 3rd:
We Begin Non-Violent Protests that Continue Day-After-Day through October 16
We are facing an unprecedented global emergency. the government has failed to protect us. To survive, it’s going to take everything we’ve got.
We face a critical crossroads. The hour is late, but not too late. Relying only on our voting will lead to disaster. WE OPENLY CHALLENGE OURSELVES AND THIS TOXIC SYSTEM. Waiting to act will be too late.
Now we must act. Beginning Saturday, October 3rd, gather and bring your family, friends, and community in non-violent protest unified by the demand: TELL THE TRUTH! And, come back in waves, day after day. This is possible. We saw this in June and early July where people came out every day for justice for Black Lives. Now, that struggle, and every struggle, and the lives of millions of people hang in the balance.
In our diversity, with our multiplicity of causes and demands we must come together and reach out to others to join us, recognizing that WE NEED A REGENERATIVE CULTURE, one that is healthy, resilient and adaptable.
We will act on our principles, modeling the world we aspire to. Extinction Rebellion has a SHARED VISION OF CHANGE.
We will act together with creative joy and with the conviction and courage of standing together not only for ourselves—but for all humanity.
