The UK Earth Fast starts on the 28th of August 2021, and will involve many rebels and other activists voluntarily going without food for a day, others for a week and others will fast until our demands are met, using this fast as a form of non-violent direct action. The target of this fast in the UK is to force the UK government to establish and be led by a citizens' assembly, putting the global climate and ecological emergency at the top of its agenda.
A large number of those participating within the UK, will be longer-term fasters who will be fasting from a hunger camp, within view of the Houses of Parliament in London, where the camp will serve as an unrelenting presence to heighten awareness and significantly increasing the visibility of the action.
Many countries will be participating in the global Earth Fast and everyone can register to participate here.With all countries having their own demands, and we hope that all will be able to synchronise their start dates, although that may not be possible. The countries include: Algeria, Australia, Bangladesh, Canada, Democratic Republic of Congo, Denmark, Egypt, France, Gambia, Germany, India, Italy, Kenya, Malawi, Mali, New Zealand, Nigeria, Spain, Sri Lanka, Sweden, Tunisia, Uganda, United Kingdom, United States and Zambia.
