The Jersey Red Rebels are a group of protestors, whose striking outfits and performances are designed to raise aware of the issues around climate change.
Part of the Island's Extinction Rebellion group, the Red Rebels hope their protests challenge the Government to listen and inspire islanders to act to stop global warming.
Here, they share five things they would like to see changed, which follows the Extinction Rebellion mandate...
We would like to see life prioritised above financial investments, with the global ecological crisis taking urgent precedence over financial investment. There also needs to be a change from a globalised economy to a re-localised one.

The Government to tell the truth and honestly disclose the crisis faced if we continue with the current economic model. It needs to use the £5m budget that was originally set aside for Tackling the Climate Emergency for full disclosure and information sharing with the public on the dilemmas faced if we continue with the current models of governance and economy.

The Government to employ a neutral organisation to set up a Citizens' Assembly. They have already agreed to this, but where is it?

The States need to enact any necessary legislation to empower the Government to make binding the decisions of a properly constituted Citizens' Assembly.

We need to urgently reduce the use of fossil fuels, which create greenhouse gasses, and agricultural chemicals in Jersey.

We also need to encourage the use of smaller vehicles and the use of bicycles, heavy investment in public transport and incentives to use it, as well as actively promote and only subsidise regenerative farming practices. Nitrates also need to banned.
