The mainstream media is failing in its most fundamental duty: to reliably inform the public on the greatest issues of our time.

We have had enough.

On 5th September, individuals are encouraged to go Media City from 8.30am. People are free to assemble wherever they want, although the view on Media City footbridge, Salford M17 1TZ, is particularly nice.

For everyone who is sick of the systematic attempts made by major media institutions to ignore the existential crises we are facing, instead focusing on distraction stories to keep us divided, come and hear people speak to the issues that our media is failing to. Help us bring people power to our streets and to the doors of the powerful.

This will follow a night of flyposting to make clear to the people of this country that there are many truths, and the media is systematically choosing to withold them.

For information about how to GET INVOLVED with the Paint the Streets campaign on the night of the 4th September, please check out this document - https://docs.google.com/document/d/1otmI3YOssHE8EtF0CQSQ98d_CvDv4C4nMG7uf7mV1lA/edit

Join us tomorrow for more rebelling throughout the city, starting with a Discobedience performance of "Shame Shame Shame", to highlight the need for public sector pension fund divestment.

In particular that Greater Manchester Pension Fund has ยฃ1.8BN invested in Fossil Fuels - the dirtiest public sector pension fund.
Follow this link for choreography. https://cloud.extinctionrebellion.org.uk/index.php/s/6dpbaskmHAXyRR8
We will also be a leaflet and placards so outreach needed as well as dancers.

Please practise safe distancing and wear a mask!

Sorry for any inconvenience but the briefing this morning wonโ€™t be happening as we already have two actions planned for the day!

The main one being the above DISCOBEDIENCE, the second being a youth action. Head to St Peterโ€™s Square at 11:30 for a briefing for the youth action if you wanna get involved!

Media and messaging need your pictures of our northern daily actions!


Use this drive to upload photos and videos under the correct day in a folder with your name/social media for credit!

We may use your images to send to the UK team to provide daily northern rebellion content

Or, as we like to call them, SHARKLAYS!

Banks and other financial institutions continue to fund fossil fuel projects and destructive industries. The world of dirty finance should be taking a permanent โ€˜holidayโ€™ from destructive dealings and propping-up polluters. We do not want our money to support ecocide at a time of climate and ecological emergency. Polluting businesses and industries need to be โ€˜Closed For Goodโ€™. Join us to take action against the finance industry.

Assemble 10:30 at St. Peter's Square
๐Ÿ“ฃUrgent Callout๐Ÿ“ฃ

Right now our woodlands are under direct attack. Front line activists have stopped HS2 in their tracks, but as the weather worsens and rebellion fever has taken hold, numbers are needed to hold the sites between London and Birmingham. Camps in some of the 108 ancient woodlands being destroyed by HS2 are under imminent threat of eviction and 'vegetation clearance'. This is a call out for radical activists who dont mind getting muddy to make their way to the camps up and down the line.

๐Ÿ“Activists at Calvert Jubilee Nature Reserve have evidence of HS2 workers filling in badger and rodent burrows with concrete, cutting limbs off of trees containing bat roosts. They need art supplies, food and building materials, as well as people to create infrastructure and hold the site through the autumn and winter. Food provided, please bring bedding if you plan to stay! All are welcome ๐Ÿ’š

๐Ÿ“Activists at Jones Hill Wood, Wendover have evidence of active badger sets and several species of rare bats roosting in the area, as well as adorable glis glis (large doormice!) living in their treehouses. These are the woods that inspired Roald Dahl to write Fantastic Mr Fox. The beautiful beech trees urgently need people who aren't afraid of heights to help keep them safe. Building materials and food are also welcomed by the camp! Food, climbing gear and accomodation can be provided. All those over the age of 16 are welcome (children welcome if they have parents with them) ๐Ÿ’š (This site is also a 5 minute drive from Wendover Active Reistance Camp on London Road!)

๐Ÿ“Activists at Poors Piece Conservation Project, Steeple Claydon have just finished building the most amazing living room, just in time for winter! Food and accommodation can be provided. All are welcome ๐Ÿ’š

๐Ÿ“At the beginning of the year Denham Ford Protection Camp in Denham Country Park was a beautiful ancient wet woodland but recently chunks of trees have been lost to the HS2 land grabbing machine. Activists are expecting eviction imminently and desperately need support. Whether you're feeling confrontational or are actively non-violent, this site needs you. Food, accommodation and climbing equipment can be provided. All are welcome ๐Ÿ’š (This site is a 10 minute drive from Harvil Road Wildlife Protection Camp)

Get in touch with any of the following accounts for more details or directions to sites. We cannot afford to lose anymore biodiversity to HS2.

External speakers, die-in and a chance for you aswell to voice your opinions on how the media giants discuss current affairs.

Public opinion is formed from media releases, currently this media is biased by personal and political agenda. It fails to perform its duty and inform the public, instead choosing to downplay the evident climate and ecological crises, and choosing to focus more on the migrant crisis which paints migrants as a cultural threat.

We can and will change this narrative. See you there!
BREAKING: Rebels are currently blocking News Corps Printworks and demands they โ€˜Free the Truthโ€™!

These Printworks are home to The Sun, The Times, Sun on Sunday, Sunday Times, as well as The Daily Mail and The London Evening Standard.

Rebels are intending to block the routes for this weekend distribution throughout the night, using vehicles and lock-ons, in order to prevent papers from reaching newsstands tomorrow.

Northern rebels, along side rebels down south are using disruption to expose the failure of these corporations to accurately report on the climate & ecological emergency, and their consistent manipulation of the truth to suit their own personal and political agendas.

Anyone who is able to get to the site and show support โ€“ do!
Wrap up, bring extra layers, waterproofs, food and water.
There will be arrests!
Location and all the information you need is in the image.
