The Northern Rivers Coastal Red Rebel activists made an appearance today at the Mullum Farmers Market. They use stillness, silence, archetypes of grief and gravitas to galvanise care and empathy for our planet.

The Red Rebel Brigade was created for the Extinction Rebellion in London and an evolution of white characters we created for the Anti Iraq war demonstrations in 2003.

The Red Rebel Brigade ‘say’ their movement symbolises the common blood we share with all species, that unifies us and makes us one.

‘As such we move as one, act as one and more importantly feel as one.

‘We are unity and we empathise with our surroundings, we are forgiving

‘We are sympathetic and humble, compassionate and understanding,

‘We divert, distract, delight and inspire the people who watch us,

‘We illuminate the magic realm beneath the surface of all things and we invite people to enter in, we make a bubble and calm the storm, we are peace in the midst of war.’

The coastal group who are attached to the Lismore group y are inspired by the performance activism of Doug Francisco who says ‘there is real power in this global unity we embody and reflect, the empathy it creates and the sense people have of knowing what it is, or knowing it but not being able to remember what it is, everyone has an affinity with it, recognises it, but cannot name or define it, this is the real magic and beauty of the Red Rebel Brigade!’
