Why Money Rebellion? Because our economic system is killing us along with the rest of the living world. Because our economic system cannot protect us from the crises to come: its own structures both cause and ignore them. Because our marker for progress – GDP growth – counts the short-term profits from burning oil and felling forests, but not the long-term dangers to our survival, leading us further into climate and ecological breakdown. Money Rebellion is a call to break the rules: to expose and disrupt the economic rules and institutions driving us toward societal collapse: growth, debt, banks, the government … The climate and ecological emergency is still getting worse, racism and exploitation of poorer nations is still rife. Most of our ‘free’ press is captive to the agenda of a few billionaires. We cannot halt any of these interlocked crises without changing the economic system that fuels them. Join us in rejecting the economic rules and financial institutions that are killing us. Find out why and how to disrupt these ideas, institutions, and more in our first wave of actions. At 7.30pm to 9.30pm on Monday 1st March you’re invited to join XR Cornwall for this 90m introduction to Money Rebellion’s proposals and its invitation to UK citizens. The talk will be followed by time for Q&A.
