Extinction Rebellion Netherlands is a grassroots organisation that was originally founded in the UK. The local group Extinction Rebellion The Hague is made up of several smaller affinity groups that organise protest actions. The movement is built on the concept of non-violent civil disobedience. XR The Hague holds weekly meetings that are open to the public.
Extinction Rebellion is a climate organisation that focuses on the political dimension of climate change. They rely on scientific evidence that shows the world is in a state of climate emergency and demand governments to adapt their policy making to this fact. They want net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2025 which, they believe, is vital to halt biodiversity loss and limit global warming. XR works to establish a citizen’s assembly in their respective countries, giving power over climate decisions back to the people themselves.
Climate Action: Extinction Rebellion The Hague holds the Dutch government and corporations accountable through public protest, urging them to take action against climate change.
Life on Land: One of Extinction Rebellion’s main goals is to halt biodiversity loss.
