The Xr symbol represents extinction. The circle signifies the planet, the hourglass inside serves as a warning that time is rapidly running out for many species. The world is currently undergoing a mass extinction event, and this symbol is intended to help raise awareness of the urgent need for change in order to address this crisis. Estimates are that somewhere between 30,000 and 140,000 species are becoming extinct every year in what scientists have named the Holocene, or Sixth Mass Extinction. This ongoing process of destruction is being caused by the impact of human activity. Within the next few decades approximately 50% of all species that now exist will have become extinct. Such a catastrophic loss of biodiversity is highly likely to cause widespread ecosystem collapse and consequently render the planet uninhabitable for humans.

Extinction Rebellion suggests that "this is a reckless decision which is NOT congruent with the action necessary to safeguard our common future. The Planning permission is seeking approval and there is currently an open consultation. We have made a guide of how to object and need your help in sharing it far and wide. You only have until the 26th of January. "

As Extinction Rebellion moves into its second major weekend of protest today with actions in London, Manchester, Edinburgh and beyond, it's hard to keep up with the surge and momentum of this movement. For Xr, that people power involves championing young people and focusing the movement around the needs of the next generation. The protest demographic reflected this, with a number of families, young children and pensioners blocking roads and bringing cities to a standstill. Here are a few links.

Elderventure recently invited Daniel Korner to give a one day workshop on the collaborative processes of Dragon Dreaming. I took part and was one of the group who explored collaborative dreaming applied to the Extinction Rebellion. I'm writing this because I think it may be a useful process for local groups. Essentially, the process takes a dream, an inspiration, an idea and then a group process modifies or adds to it so that every member of the group totally owns it.
