Extinction Rebellion Harangey tweeted,
The Climate Emergency Fund (CEF) has pledged $350k to Extinction Rebellion, if others will match it. This epic match-funding promise follows a solidarity protest organised by XR and others which took place outside the Brazilian Embassy in London on Friday.
The Climate Emergency Fund (CEF) formed this year in response to the escalating devastation occurring across our natural world and the need for urgent action and deep societal transformation. They provide grants to those “who demonstrate the intention and capability of disrupting the inadequate and immoral gradual approach governments around the world are taking to addressing the climate emergency.”
ER’s next planned action,
Worldwide Rebellion begins on Monday 7 October: Extinction Rebellion groups around the world will gather in key cities to call for action on the climate & ecological crisis we are facing
