BYLINE TIMES PODCAST
Extinction Rebellion: What Next?
What’s next for Extinction Rebellion? The environmental protest group sent out a press release at the start of the year headlined “We Quit” – which might lead you think that, well, they were giving up.
Not quite…but they are shifting away from the kind mass public disruption that made their name in the first place.
XR came to prominence after blockading major sites in London during 2018 and 2019, but have, arguably, now been eclipsed by other direct action groups such as Just Stop Oil and Insulate Britain.
So is Extinction Rebellion facing extinction itself?
Adrian Goldberg hears from one of the organisation’s co founders Clare Farrell.
