Extinction Rebellion Reacts To 2019 Global Assessment on Biodiversity

(Red Revolution) – Extinction Rebellion has said that the ecological crisis and fight against the mass extinction is just as dangerous to the planet as climate change, supporting findings from the UN IPBES 2019 Global Assessment on Biodiversity and saying that “the report delivers a stark message that humanity is engaged in the mass annihilation of other species with whom we share our home.

Issuing a statement yesterday following the UN Report, the activist group has said that too much of the political focus in recent weeks has surrounded the issues of greenhouse gases and climate change, with the ecological fight being just as desperate.

Dr Alison Green, National Director (UK) Scientists Warning and spokesperson for Extinction Rebellion said that the report was “damming… shaming and shocking” and that “little or no progress has been made towards halting extinctions, loss of habitat or restoration of ecosystems.

“We must radically transform the ways in which we live with nature and to do so will require evidence-based and science-led interventions by the public, the private sector and the government. Human behaviours, including our reliance on degenerative as opposed to regenerative practices, manifest in land use change, which is the major cause of what is now a rapidly accelerating loss of biodiversity. The failures to make progress show that it is our collective duty now to reject complacent and inadequate responses and to rebel. The future of all life is at stake.”

Lorna Greenwood, spokesperson for Extinction Rebellion said that humanity “must accept that we can’t go on as we are” and that it was time to “rethink how we grow food, travel and look after the countryside.

It may mean hard choices but the rewards are enormous. Within our lifetime we could see nature restored and our children’s future secured. The alternative is not an option. We have no choice but to rebel until our world is healed.

Last week the British government became the first in the world to declare a climate emergency after two weeks of protests around London that raised pressure and awareness on the issue, Extinction Rebellion winning the backing of Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party.

Extinction Rebellion has stated that their key demands are the declaration of a climate emergency, the government acting to halt biodiversity loss and reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2025 and the creation of a Citizens’ Assembly on climate and ecological justice.

#OpGreenRights: Anonymous Italia – Extinction Rebellion Release Joint Data Leak of 6 Organizations Across Italy

Earlier today, April 18th 2019, after almost a month away from the hacking scene, “Anonymous Italia” burst back onto the hacking scene with a series of hacks/leaks across the country.  Interestingly enough, they also released a video along side their press release in Italian – something they normally do not. The cyber attacks themselves were carried out under the general umbrella of “Operation Green Rights” (#OpGreenRights) but with a new purpose/direction they call “Extinction Rebellion” – an international movement focused on issues/events effecting the worlds ecology and environment which effect us all collectively as a species. More specifically, issues and events that theoretically threaten to wipe us off the planet if continued to be left unchecked.

Exposed in the latest round of data leaks were the Conference of Regional Parliaments, a private law body aiming to enhance the role of the Assemblies of the Regions and Autonomous Provinces, Council of Agricultural Research and Analysis, Provincial College of Agricultural Technicians, Academy of Autonomy, a project in agreement between the Ministry of the Interior, ANCI and UPI, as well as the Regional Federation of Farmers of Piedmont, a territorial branch of the General Confederation of Italian Agriculture, and COMECO – an organization responsible for the production and distribution of products for environmental treatments using biological and/or natural methods.

Additionally, in a message attached to the leaks translated from Italian, the hackers wanted the world to know:

Extinction Rebellion: REBELLION DECLARATION

Consider the following truths:

We are facing our darkest hour.

Humanity is threatened by an event unprecedented in history. If we do not immediately face the situation, we will be catapulted into further destruction of everything we care about: this nation, the peoples that inhabit it, the ecosystems in which we live and the future generations to come.

The message of scientists is clear: we are on course for the sixth mass extinction and in the absence of rapid/determined action we will find ourselves facing catastrophe.

Everywhere in the world we are witnessing the annihilation of biodiversity. The seas are poisoned, their acidity is increasing and so is the rise of sea levels. Floods and desertification will soon make large areas of land uninhabitable, causing mass migration.

Our air has become so toxic that states now break their own laws. This air hurts our children before they are even born and is known to have caused the death of tens of thousands of people. The drastic imbalance of the climate is already witness in front of our eyes. There will be more fires, unpredictable anomalous storms, an incalculable increase in famines and unprecedented droughts that will lead to the exhaustion of food and drinking water supplies.

No being endowed with reason, ethical conscience, moral concerns or spiritual beliefs can continue to ignore, deny or leave unanswered the ecological crisis that is affecting every single nation on this planet as a whole, along with its wildlife.

Recalling these values, and looking at the truth indicated by overwhelming scientific evidence, we declare that it is our duty to act in the name of the safety and well-being of our children, our communities and the very future of this planet.
