About Us

XRSL (Extinction Rebellion South Lakes) are part of an international movement standing up for climate justice and against the mass extinction of millions of species. We use people power and non-violent direct action to demand that government act with urgency on the climate and ecological emergency.

We are based in the beautiful South Lakeland area of Cumbria in North-West England

Our demands:

  • Tell the truth:  Government must tell the truth by declaring a climate and ecological emergency, working with other institutions to communicate the urgency for change
  • Act Now:  Government must act now to halt biodiversity loss and reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2025
  • Go beyond politics:  Government must create and be led by the decisions of a Citizens’ Assembly on climate and ecological justice

Get involved!

We need you, whoever you are, however much time you have, to build a powerful movement.  All who want to adhere to our 10 principles & values are welcome to join us (link opens from national XR website).

We’re also on social media:
