“Join XR NYC THIS SEPTEMBER! EXTINCTION REBELLION is a global nonviolent movement working to compel the world’s government to address the climate & ecological emergency.”
Those are part of the words on a SEPTEMBER 9/7 REBELLION flyer that I received this past weekend, when I attempted to vend those DecorForU Black Lives Matter, S#!t Just Got Real, Not My President, Occupy Wall Street, Yoga, No Police State, Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space, Washington Square Park, Brooklyn and I Love New York necklaces, magnets, key chains and pins for $2 each next to extinction rebellion‘s extinction rebellion NYC Rebel Fest Gathering event at Washington Square Park this past weekend. And the description of their event invite reads like as follows:
Sunday, August 30, 2020 1:00 PM 5:00 PM
Washington Square Park 5th Ave & Washington Square N
New York, NY, 10012 United States
WE WANT TO LIVE… IN A MORE BEAUTIFUL WORLD.
You are invited to Rebel Fest! Together, we will reclaim our power by openly and joyfully defying the current systems of oppression and creating the more beautiful world we want.
Join us as we gather in community, have fun, make art, share food, and inspire each other!
Schedule of events: 1pm – Gather in the park near the fountain. Enjoy snacks, mingle, and make art
2pm – Kickoff to the Rebellion. Get to know your fellow Rebels and hear more about the exciting new campaign demanding REAL democracy here in NYC!
Please bring some light snack food to share, if you’d like and are able!
Please wear a mask and observe proper physical distancing. We will have hand sanitizer and some PPE to share.
And extinction rebellion NYC seems to have extinction rebellion NYC events on what seems like a daily basis in the New York City area to save the environment and save the world.
You can also join their XR community for weekly virtual, playful, regenerative dance parties as well. Everyone’s welcome!
And I am not exactly sure what extinction rebellion is, though I have seen those extinction rebellion flyers around on light poles in the streets of New York City the past year or so, and I could only figure out that the extinction rebellion symbol had something to do with climate change and saving humanity from extinction, from disappearing off the face of the planet, though I think it is Albert Einstein who once said that if the bee disappeared off the face of the earth, man would have only four years left to live. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more man.
And there is also a How Green Is My City Exhibition Tour at Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space – MORUS, that radical history museum in New York City’s Lower East Side, September 25th 6pm.
This exhibition is led by the director of Green Maps. The exhibition is brought to you through a special partnership between the Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space (MoRUS) and the Green Map System, and also an Opening with Live Virtual Tour: How Green Is My City? September 6th. In the basement level of MoRUS, explore a special temporary exhibit featuring photos, art, and barricades from the recent Black Lives Matter demonstrations. “Plywood Windows of SoHo: Black Lives Matter” is curated by James Hong with photographs by Hong and George Hirose. The partial Marsha P. Johnson mural is done by street artist Captain Eyeliner (instagram: @captain_eyeliner).
And some of those photos from this extinction rebellion REBEL FEST day at Washington Square Park, find themselves posted in those photos and videos above. Join the September 9/7 Rebellion. To all the good samaritans in New York City and beyond. Thank You. #climatechangeisreal #blacklivesmatter
