Description
Description
Extinction Rebellion (XR) is an environmental movement that uses non-violent means of civil disobedience to demonstrate action (protests, demonstrations) against the mass extinction of animals, plants and habitats, as well as the possible extinction of humanity as a result of the climate crisis, and to call on governments to act. Since 2018, the movement has been growing from various precursor groups. By 2020, it says it is represented in 67 countries. Breaches of the law by the group in many of its protests and blockades are causing criticism of the movement. In October 2019, London police issued a ban on demonstrations, which they lifted four days later, saying the measure was no longer necessary due to the end of the protest wave.
Goals

The movement is trying to avert the climate catastrophe and stop the advancing mass extinction. The demands on politicians are: 1. tell the truth, 2. act now, 3. beyond politics.
Outcomes
Outcomes
Violations of the law by the group in many of its protests and blockades have led to criticism of the movement. There have been arrests as a result of blockades.
