Extinction Rebellion is a non-violent direct-action group that aims to put pressure on governments to take action on the climate crisis. This article introduces the organisation, their message and tactics, and describes some experiences of the ‘International Rebellion’ in London at the end of April 2019. It suggests that social workers have a duty to act in solidarity with those most affected by climate change and that Extinction Rebellion offers a promising model for change.

More about this publication?
  • An International Journal

    Critical and Radical Social Work is an exciting new journal that will promote debate and scholarship around a range of engaged social work themes. The journal publishes papers which seek to analyse and respond to issues, such as the impact of global neo-liberalism on social welfare; austerity and social work; social work and social movements; social work, inequality and oppression, and understanding and responding to global social problems (such as war, disasters and climate change).

    It welcomes contributions that consider and question themes relating to the definition of social work and social work professionalism, that look at ways in which organic and 'indigenous' practice can expand concepts of the social work project and that consider alternative and radical histories of social work activity. As a truly international journal it actively encourages contributions from academics, scholars and practitioners from across the global village.
