Over the past week, the tabloid press has shown yet again that it is in service to the criminal billionaire class that owns these titles, rather than to the sacrifices of the British working class. They choose to get clicks out of hijacking the moving remembrance of the dead by a soldier and a nurse from Extinction Rebellion, who laid a wreath to highlight the core message of the war – “never again”.
Conventional environmentalism is rationalist, repressed, and reformist. As the originator, and strategic designer behind Extinction Rebellion, I can say, without any hesitation, nothing changes without disruption – the breaking of the law. This massive turnaround in radical political culture has to happen now; otherwise, the fascism will easily overpower leaderless and dispersed social protests with violence and their billionaire funding.
