Northern Rebellion (hosted by XR MCR)

event on
30 August

XR MCR is hosting a four-day peaceful action in Manchester from Friday August 30th. We invite you to join us and rebels from across the region in Northern Rebellion.

Rebels will hold a peaceful space in the city centre to create a wonderful oasis of social change, creativity and action.

With three days of music, art, trainings, talks, assemblies, food, wellbeing and workshops, it’s a chance to meet others, learn new skills, draw strength from each other – and take non-violent direct action in response to the continued inaction on our terrible ecological crisis. 💚🌍

There will be some brilliant speakers such as ecological economics expert Julia Steinberger, one of the authors of the Intergovernmental Panel Of Climate Change’s landmark 2018 report – as well as DJs, bands and performers from all over the region, including our very own samba band, and some surprise special guests… See below for further details of the event 👇

Invoking the rallying cry of those other Manchester rebels, the suffragettes, who told us “Deeds not Words”, we urge people to Act Now – and join the Northern Rebellion!

More information and latest details on the Northern Rebellion website.

[Update: The Northern Rebellion is taking place on Deansgate – between John Dalton Street and St Ann’s Street.]
