Extinction Rebellion is an international movement that uses non-violent civil disobedience in an attempt to halt mass extinction and mimimise the risk of social collapse.
Retired doctor and spokesperson for Extinction Rebellion, Bing Jones is one of the XR coordinators in Sheffield. He has been arrested twice and feels devastated by society’s continuing environmental destruction. He’s mobilised over 1000 doctors to endorse direct action and have planned and performed multiple direct actions himself. The scale of the problem, our inertia and vested interests delaying change keep him awake at night.
