The climate crisis threatens global social collapse within a generation. What to do?

Common Sense for the 21st Century outlines how movements around the world now need to come together to start doing 'what works'. This means engaging in mass civil disobedience to make real change happen. This booklet is not just theory, it is the call to action. The political class is not going to save us from extinction. We will be saved by ordinary people breaking the law. This is common sense - only Rebellion can save us now.

Roger Hallam is a co-founder of Extinction Rebellion. He was an organic farmer in Wales, turned prize-winning academic, who applied his social scientific research to developing the radical tactics and strategy for this new climate change movement. Roger's message to everyone is:

'Think on it but then act. Join the Rebellion. Let's get to it.'

'There is only one question. How do we stop climate change? In this tough-minded and uncompromising book, Roger Hallam gives the answer so many politicians and business people don't want to hear. Common Sense is not just an argument: it's an instruction manual for ripping through the complacency and corruption that will destroy our planet.' - Paul Mason, author of Why It's Kicking Off Everywhere and Postcapitalism

About the Author

Roger Hallam is a founder of Extinction Rebellion.

Between at least 2017 and early 2019 he was studying for a PhD in civil disobedience at King's College London, researching how to achieve social change through radical movements.
