We are mothers, grandmothers, aunties, sisters, daughters and allies around the world. We know that those least responsible for the climate crisis are also the most impacted. We believe in the power of mothers and caregivers to demand climate justice.
MOTHERS* REBELLION'S GLOBAL PROTEST 15-23.9
During the period 15-23 september, mothers and allies in 81 cities, in 26 countries, on six continents, made sit down protests in public spaces as Mothers* Rebellion, calling for climate action from our leaders.
Mothers* Rebellion is a movement of women in a growing global community on six continents. We will not give up the fight for a sustainable present and future for the current and coming generations. We want to be able to look our children into the eyes and say that we truly do all that we can. We turn our grief and frustration over the lack of a powerful, transformative response from our politicians and leaders into action. Learn more
OUR METHOD: "THE CIRCLE"
The method we use in our demonstrations is simple. It is a circle of mothers* sitting down together in a public space, for example in a pedestrian street, a public park or outside a government building. We sit peacefully facing the passers-by, helping ourselves and others to connect with our climate emotions. We often hold signs with the names of our children or other messages related to the climate crisis. Our message is that we refuse to look away, that we refuse to give up and that we will do everything we can for the lives and future of our children.Learn more
