Extinction Rebellion Buddhists

The Extinction Rebellion Buddhists formed in April 2019 in the UK and is slowly spreading globally. So if you are concerned about the climate, have a look at the website. http://xrbuddhists.com/

We believe that, as Buddhists, we have something unique to offer Extinction Rebellion and the eco-activism movement as a whole. We now number in our hundreds and have members from across the UK from many different Buddhist traditions. During the 2019 October rebellion we organised actions, ran daily meditation and walking meditation sessions. Some of us were arrested (some of us more than once!) whilst sitting in meditation on the road – exemplifying a non-violent and peaceful but powerful approach to civil disobedience.

We welcome and encourage contact and conversation with XR Buddhists in other countries.

For those of you in Germany, the XR Buddhists are giving a talk on 21st November at 18.00-20.00 MEZ in german online in cooperation with MitgefĂĽhl in Aktion e.V. and Buddha Talk. You can find the zoom link on their website:
