Good summary of some of the issues around https://www.currentaffairs.org/2019/10/extinction-rebellion-has-a-politics-problem
@zxv needed to take a step back from the screen after seeing them say this shit: “If we come down for one side, we lose them, and they shut down…. If asked about Brexit, we recommend speaking to the outrage people feel at our failed politics.”
Aye... I feel outrage at this "failed politics"... one of the symptoms of which was Brexit... And I cannae ask them about that without being talked down to? Fuck sake
@GreenandBlack at this point I just think works best for recruitment into more politically serious organizations.
@zxv oh no... is XR another SWP front?
@GreenandBlack No looks like some hippies from Stroud https://www.npr.org/2019/10/07/767711216/how-a-small-english-town-spurred-the-group-thats-reshaping-global-climate-protes
@GreenandBlack also considering that SWP doesn't seem to know anything about XR when I asked them questions suggests to me it's probably not a SWP front.
