Extinction Rebellion Lewes and Ouse Valley is part of an international non-violent direct action movement demanding urgent action in the face of an unprecedented global emergency. Life on Earth is in crisis as we have entered a period of abrupt climate breakdown, and we are in the midst of a mass extinction fuelled by our economic and political system. We must act now whilst we still can.
Our government is failing to protect us and we have a duty to rebel.
Extinction Rebellion Lewes and Ouse Valley covers Lewes, Newhaven, Seaford and surrounding areas but anyone is welcome. We organise non-violent direct action (NVDA) both locally and nationally, working with other Extinction Rebellion groups and other movements.
See our News to find out about our latest plans and recent actions.
See our Events for talks, training, planning groups and more.

In October 2018, 1500 people gathered in London’s Parliament Square and announced a Declaration of Rebellion against the UK government for its failures to address the climate crisis.
