Episode 5: Clare Farrell

Safia talks to Co-founder of Extinction Rebellion Clare Farrell about her personal journey from being “embedded in the machine” of retail fashion to leading the hugely influential activist movement against climate collapse.

She tells us what motivates her to go on hunger strike and sit on motorway roundabouts at 6am on a cold winters morning and how Extinction Rebellion came into being. We hear how XR uses its unique model of organisation to raise awareness and build action groups around the world to push for systemic change.

Clare gives us an update on future events in the XR calendar and talks frankly about her personal strategy for coping with the threat of ecological collapse.

The Extinction Rebellion Handbook, “This Is Not A Drill” has facts and stories to arm us with the tools we need to become an activist. See the link below to order.
