Dublin: Extinction Rebellion’s Funeral for Humanity

You are invited to join Extinction Rebellion’s funeral for humanity to highlight the Government’s failure to recognise and act on the ecological and climate emergency despite the fact we are in the sixth mass extinction.

We Rebel because we love this world. It breaks our hearts to see it ravaged, to watch so many people and animals all over this world already dying, to know that this will soon happen to our children without urgent changes. There is no way forward without giving credence to our grief. We are serious, this is an emergency, this is our home we are watching collapse.

Guidance for funeral goers:

– We will assemble at the Spire for the funeral procession and walk approx. 1km through the city centre to the burial ceremony site.

– Please dress for a funeral

– Feel free to bring or make you own Extinction Rebellion placard or sign

Where: The Spire, O’Connell Street, Dublin

When: Sun, 3rd March – 1pm to 3pm
