Tell the Truth! Ring the Alarm on Climate Emergency

April 17, 2019, noon

Old State House
corner of State & Congress, Boston


Extinction Rebellion is here to tell the truth, and act with the urgency that the truth demands.

On April 17th at noon, XR Boston begins its non-violent uprising against the long-standing criminal inaction on our planet's ecological breakdown. Our governments and the media have failed to tell the truth about the climate crisis and local environmental emergencies, and failed to communicate the need for drastic action in order to save life on our planet.

We will gather at the site of the Boston Massacre at noon and demand truth from media sites in downtown Boston, urging them to help us bring about the transformational change needed to face the ecological crisis. We will then take publicly disruptive, non-violent action to declare what we know to be true, and upend the repressive silence around the climate emergency.


If you have any, please bring bells or chimes so that we can sound the alarm together and summon our communities into action. Bells have a multiplicity of meanings across cultural and spiritual traditions. We invite you to share those as they relate to our planetary crisis on this event page (or thru DM), as well as hold those at the action as appropriate.

Options for offsite participation will be posted closer to the date, but we hope that we will see you there!
