Y'know your mate Barry, do you think he believes in British democracy, does he care about elections and take pride in his ballot?

What about Linda down the pub, do you think she worries about her children's future, does she want them to grow up in a safe, kind world?

And your cousin Jay, who you only see once a year, don't they care about equality, compassion, and the truth?

We all know people who's lives would be better with a truly free press

It's our job to help them see it

We're taking on the billionaire press, on behalf of our children, on behalf of nature, on behalf of decency & justice and on behalf of life itself. We need all the help we can get.

Please, do your part by sending a message to 5 friends this weekend, and ask them to join you.

πŸ’₯ BREAKING NEWS πŸ’₯

The day we've been building towards is here & we've kicked off by dumping a few tonnes of horse manure at The Daily Fail's front door

We've had enough. We're calling bullsh*t on lies, corruption & division

https://twitter.com/XRebellionUK/status/1409057369556987904?s=19

πŸ’₯πŸ’₯πŸ’₯πŸ’₯πŸ’₯πŸ’₯πŸ’₯

If you're on the fence about coming today, if you're thinking "they don't need me, it doesn't matter if I stay home", think again.

You are needed.

Consider, truthfully, what kind of world you want to live in, and become an active agent in our collective fate.

12pm, parliament square.

See you on the streets.
πŸ‘ W O W πŸ‘

What a day. Thousands of us - from different walks of life - came together to challenge the corruption, lies & hate of the billionaire press

We heard from some brilliant, diverse speakers & began building a true moment for radical change

This morning, News UK employees will find they have to walk across a bed of TELL THE TRUTH messages to get to their front door, and check out what happened after everyone left...

This is not the end.

We live in a broken, toxic system and we are coming to a crossroads. Everything rests on what we do right now.

So, this *cannot* be the end.

In August, Extinction Rebellion will be on the streets again & we need everyone to step into their power and take action with us.

Drop in on a local group meeting & continue building the bridges we need to win

United we rise.

See you on the streets.
