What we do in Wimborne

Extinction Rebellion Wimborne specialise in headline grabbing, peaceful, non-disruptive actions designed to communicate vital messages about the climate and ecological emergencies to the widest possible audience. Our actions are always pre-liaised with the police. 


Our group was founded in May 2019 and has staged dozens of actions locally and taken part in many regional and national actions. 

We protest against...

Our Government’s continuing drive to encourage fossil fuel exploitation, and its failure to stimulate the green economy in particular onshore wind farms and solar farms


Barclays and HSBC’s fossil fuel investments


Our Government’s curbs on protesting 


Wessex Water’s dumping of raw sewage


Dorset Council’s use of glyphosate 


Rockhopper Oil’s destruction of the environment (in collaboration with Extinction Rebellion Salisbury)


Perenco Oil’s pollution of Poole Harbour (in collaboration with Extinction Rebellion Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch)
