Veterans for Peace sits down with Dan Batten of Extinction Rebellion Vermont (XRVT).  Extinction Rebellion is a global climate justice movement that is focused on using nonviolent civil disobedience to draw attention to the climate crisis and push the government and corporate institutions to make vast changes to society before we experience catastrophe.

XRVT intends to spark and sustain a spirit of collective, creative rebellion which will enable much-needed changes in our political, economic, and social landscape. XRVT works with and beside affinity groups in other U.S. cities and states to change the national consciousness to become one based on the conservation of our ecosystems. XRVT believes in fostering cooperation within our citizenry to quickly reach the goal of living sustainably within our natural environment as a part of it, not apart from it. We work to transform our society into one that is compassionate, inclusive, kind, sustainable, equitable, and interpersonally connected. Additionally, we endeavor to mobilize and train local organizers in Vermont municipalities to work with their local communities to develop, using the XR framework, tools they need to address Vermont’s deeply rooted problems as they relate to the threats created by global warming. 

Produced with facilities provided by Vermont Community Access Media (VCAM).
