The Big One – Houses of Parliament 21st April – 24th April 2023


Will you be there?

The invitation is for everybody to Unite to Survive at ‘The Big One’ – a four day action from the 21st to the 24th April 2023, where people from all groups and movements, not just XR, will gather throughout Westminster and at the Houses of Parliament.

XR may have set the date – but this is far bigger than one group. So far, more than 70 organisations are supporting – including Greenpeace, Friends of the Earth and PCS Union to name but a few.

  • Family friendly
  • Accessible and welcoming
  • Creative
  • Engaging

Awash with colour and culture, the streets of Westminster will be transformed with People’s Pickets outside government departments and a diverse programme of speakers, performers and workshops. There will be art and music, talks from experts, places to listen and engage, and activities for the kids.

Come when you like, leave when you like, and stay for as long as you can. The Big One lasts for four days, with a different set of activities each day. But whatever your plans, come, be heard and be counted!

Come on your own, with friends and family, a community group – or a local XR group. You can always ask a steward (hi viz jackets) to show you around and help you find like minded people.

Not sure you’ll make a difference?

Every single person makes us collectively more powerful, and makes our voices harder for the Government to ignore. Just imagine what thousands of us working together could do. We can make this the biggest climate protest ever held in the UK – something that is talked about for generations. We can bring about change. We can turn the tide. But first, we need to show up.

You are needed, we are needed, everyone is needed.
Here comes everyone.
