Rave Revolution Announces a Dance Gathering to Protest Inaction at the UN Lisbon Ocean Conference.
Rave Revolution was founded post-pandemic by a group of global like-minded people looking to unite the dance community, environmental activists and everyone else concerned about the state of our planet. Rave Revolution is designed to encourage people to do something about climate annihilation. See: https://raverevolution.org/
It is crystal clear that without civil disobedience, our leaders both political and private, do not have the courage or vision to affect the change required to bring carbon emissions down to safer levels and to protect the biodiversity that keeps us, and this planet, alive.
The sea covers 70% of the planet, 43% of which is lawless. For over 10 years, Member States of the United Nations have been negotiating a treaty that would enable the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity in areas beyond national jurisdiction. But not surprisingly, nothing has been concluded. Meanwhile, life in the oceans has entered a downhill trajectory toward mass extinction, an event that will surpass the Earth’s prior great extinctions.
The UN Ocean Conference begins on Monday the 27th of June. It’s time for elites and diplomats to hear from the people. Rave Revolution along with Ocean Rebellion and Sciaena will be present on Wednesday the 29th of June at 11:00 a.m. Join us at our music stage outside of the Altice Arena within the Parque das Nações. We must be fast and drastic. This will be the first of many Rave Revolution dance protests.
Rave Revolution’s Demand to the United Nations: To open concrete dialogue to end infinite economic growth and to shift towards a more inclusive metric such as Genuine Progress Indicators, as it is economic growth that is leading to the destruction of the oceans and the climate. Also reducing inequality by advocating for fairer distribution of resources with the global south.
