On Saturday 12th October hundreds of rebels gathered to occupy Place Royale/Koningsplein in Brussels for a 24-hour long program of People's Assemblies, art, music, and more, inviting the King to declare a state of Climate and Ecological Emergency in Belgium.
Huge, peaceful Royal Rebellion met by brutally violent police response
- that the Government declares a Climate and Ecological Emergency, recognising the need for rapid transformation of our economic system.
- that the Government enacts a comprehensive, legally-binding National Emergency Plan which phases out the extraction and import of fossil fuels by 2025, and prioritises restoration of biodiversity and the preservation of our natural environment.
- a Citizens' Assembly, equipping our regions and communities with the resources and the authority to ensure a managed transition to an equitable post-growth society.
