Extinction Rebellion Nutters Will Go For “Digital Disruption”

Since they can’t be unhinged wankers in public, they’ll do it online, at least the Australian chapter

Extinction Rebellion goes for digital disruption amid pandemic

Extinction Rebellion, the environmental movement known for disruptive and theatrical protests, is going digital to accommodate the pandemic lockdown.

The campaigners are launching a national “digital rebellion” on Monday to target governments and “climate-complicit industries” while obeying public health laws banning group gatherings and enforcing physical distancing.

Planned events include a “koala rebellion” where people dress up as koalas and film themselves to contribute footage to a protest video highlighting NSW and Victorian logging of unburnt native forests.

The activists will also be tweeting during the ABC’s Q&A on Monday night when the Premiers of NSW, Victoria and Queensland are scheduled to appear, and organising “social media swarms” to encourage divestment from the big four banks. Some plans are secret to keep the element of surprise.

Koalas. Sounds more like they have a Furry fetish. The Sydney Morning Herald was nice enough to include what these totally sane people look like

“The pandemic isn’t a hiccup that we have to get past and go back to business as usual,” Mr Tennant said.

“Events like this, whether it’s animal-borne diseases and pandemics or floods and droughts, both in Australia and overseas, are going to continue to create crises like this that will have huge economic impacts,” he said.

“For us and for our children and grandchildren, it has to be a different kind of economy that we’re going to rebuild after this.”

It’s almost like this has nothing to do with science and everything to do with politics.
