Sing out for the climate

Are you worried about climate change and need your voice to be heard? You can solve this (literally!) by joining the Extinction Rebellion (XR) Choir. The commitment required is minimal and members range from professional singers to people who just like to sing.

In keeping with every successful movement in history, the choir has chosen its anthem. We Need to Wake Up is based on an Italian partisan song from 1943 called Bella Ciao. The choir will be learning it in three rehearsals at 2pm August 24 and 25 and September 14 (singers can choose which rehearsal to come to).

The choir is hoping to increase current membership from 50 to 100 so that it can stage a tremendously effective flash mob at Sydney Central in October, and also support actions in Springwood and Echo Point in September. The climax of this year's performances will be the XR Summer Solstice Concert at the Cultural Centre on December 7.

If you are interested in joining or would like to know more please contact Alison Lockwood at or phone 0423 819 980.
