Extinction Rebellion (XR) is a UK-based resistance movement that promotes direct action to try to prevent climate change and damage to the environment. Although it is explicitly non-violent, the UK police have termed it an "extremist" ideology and have tackled it under the Prevent (Preventing Violent Extremism) programme.[1]

A document published by the Guardian in 2020 shows that although acknowledging the movement as non-violent, the UK police have listed Extinction Rebellion as as "extremist" group under the PREVENT (Preventing Violent Extremism) programme. When asked about the document, Counter Terrorism Policing South East stated that "this document was produced at a local level to help our partners to spot the signs of vulnerability to radicalisation. By including Extinction Rebellion in this document, it gives the impression we consider them to be an extremist group, which they are not. We will review the guidance to make this clear."[2]

Worldwide groups

The UK group has inspired similar ones worldwide, including in Australia[3] and Denmark.[4]
