The future is here.
The storm is now.

We stand on the brink of climate catastrophe: of ecological devastation, of flooding, drought, disease, famine and war.

It is time for us to act.

Our politicians have been bought off and they are scared. We are the resistance. We are done with doing as we are told. It is time to ask for what we want.

It is time to make them hear us: to stand our ground non-violently. To dismantle the system and protect the living and ask.

We are free citizens with power not consumers. We are so much more than the powerless customer the system needs to fill its gut. We are the generation who are going to get fucked over in a way no generation has in the past.

The climate has changed. It is time for us to rise. Ask for zero emissions.

We burn with boredom for the status quo.
We are the culture hackers, the crackers, the disruptors, the now. We are the passion of the age The watchers The ones who get it – the future is here.

The storm is now.
And we are ready.

We are fury, resistance and hope. We are the future. Join us.

The Future, the BFT and the free runners draw a line across dangerous energy

Belarus Free Theatre Free Running Millennium Bridge

A nuclear plant funded by Russia but built where Belarus meets the EU. 25 free runners beginning their sprint at London’s Stock Exchange and ending hanging from the outer beams of the Millennium Bridge. The Belarus Free Theatre company performing extracts from their latest production: Red Forest. A circle drawn around the eye.

On Saturday these elements met on the Millennium Bridge in London – actors, freerunners and tourists all wearing the eye – passed one another a red line of fabric and covered the bridge.

The Belarussians were drawing a red line between the future they want and the planned construction of the Ostraviets nuclear plant.

We were making London stop; inviting people to think about future sources of energy and to consider where they might draw their red line.

Governments from around the world are scrabbling in the wake of energy companies. They are making promises to drill and to burn – and their promises are a threat to the future.

As we crossed the Millennium Bridge, painting red lines around the eyes of strangers – explaining to them why the fight for clean energy in Belarussia is a fight that all of us must fight – the red line and the red fabric connected us:

We are connected. We unite with a circle drawn around our eye to fight for our future.

We are the watchers. We judge the powerful when they do not act to protect the future from climate change.

We are the creators.  We refuse to be victims. We create our own world.

Join us.
