    These are your new leaders. I mean, I've met him obviously, but who are they? They don't quite seem real.

    This is a 5* thread

    xr strategy- it's good to hear that the objectives are broader than just climate change acknowledgement - i had thought that maybe general environmental degradation might bring in a wider constituency, but actual alteration of reality from quantum level up is a goal that i am aligned with 100%

    xr middle class-ness - they have sussed the regional vs. london equation well - they bus in gentle rural folk * as shock troops for the arrest/martyrdom operations. as well obvs for that druidy/crusty contingent

    so it's currently the back to the bush re-grouping phase.

    wierd to contrast with Greenpeace's kind of professional, big budget corporate DA in St James
    easy to imagine the campaigns team sitting around planning that one on slack or skype - cost/benefit of keeping the brand on this wave of eco-consciousness

    summer rebellion nightmare.. disorganised, lack of trained support roles, diluted actions, completely co-oped and managed by state.. a complete farce.. everyone furious.. desperately need to re-generate and re-imagine.

    however media messaging, community co-action and thousands of new rebels are the positiveís

    yep.. nothing new for me in there... any one who canít accept in their crit that the tactics of xr in april were the greatest win ever for green politics... is just blinded by thier own ideology..

    things are moving fast now... as i see it the political eco leftists are mostly moving on to the Ďmitigation vs adaptationí argument.. (as framed in previous link). itís a bigger picture.. xr might be redundant by xmas. thatís cool, it played itís part, so far and imo, very well. iím proud to have done my bit.

    you want a hard read try this:
    http://sirius.institute/Autumn_Rebellion.pdf

    my personal pov is neither of these: although, i do lean to the humanist/carl rodgers integral/truth side of things in the sirius essay..

    thousands of us are in working groups several evenings a week ingesting all this crit.. re-imagining systems.

    if your agreeable to non-violence and transparency.... we need to feed.. give your brains to the hive! october will probably be xrís last hurrah... come help design the october rebellion.. i have seen an individual come in with an idea and 6weeks later itís an action of a hundred people! this is real, and making imo, on the whole, a beneficial impact to future.

    pax.
