On Friday October 2nd, climate justice activists held a funeral procession in downtown San Francisco, taking the street briefly to hilight our demand that the BlackRock private equity firm stop financing the climate crisis – and defund tar sands oil projects that endanger the health of people and planet alike.

IN PROGRESS: Mural In Clarion Alley, Mission District SF
Through the pandemic, through the wildfires, through the smoke, and luckily no murder hornets – members of Extinction Rebellion San Francisco Bay Area’s Art Working Group have been making a beautiful mural appear in the Mission District’s historic Clarion Alley as part of the Clarion Alley Mural Project (or CAMP). Click through for the progress gallery.
The rebellions engulfing our country right now are an indictment of this fundamental truth: policing in the United States has always been for the benefit of a white supremacist ruling class. These rebellions are a call for us to show up, to demonstrate how serious we are about XR's Fourth Demand. That demand seeks reparations for centuries of systemic racism.
Show up with or without your XR gear, but show up. Please. Wear your masks and rebel in the streets. For those of you who cannot, hang banners from your homes, from your apartment windows, from your cars, from freeway overpasses, to express your outrage and your commitment to justice. Hold online meetings to plan resistance. Some of you are already doing this now. Let's do this collectively - as a group of people who clearly see that the problem of extinction cannot be divorced from the problem of systemic racism.

XRSFBAY, COVID-19 and Resilience
The Extinction Rebellion San Francisco Bay Chapter is sending love to those across the world impacted by COVID-19 and their families. These times call for strengthened resilience and mutual aid. This is a global crisis, which, similar to the deadly crisis of climate change, requires a global response at individual, family, community, city, region, state, country and international levels. We have the responsibility to take personal accountability for our actions by staying at home to limit cross-contamination risk, as well as the opportunity to create resilient social structures and mutual aid infrastructure that we can continue to grow to address the climate crisis (mortality rate of 80% of all life on earth on our current trajectory). Stay tuned via our email list (sign up here) and facebook page for ways to participate in the movement while you are staying safe at home.
