In May 2020 we published our first Rebel Rogue Gallery to tell the stories of Rebels who had been arrested. Since then we’ve been busy, so busy in fact that we now have a second gallery of Rebels who’ve taken part in arrestable actions in the last 14 months.
We follow in footsteps of our saviour Jesus Christ and many Christians who, throughout the ages, have broken the laws of their time and place to stand up for justice. Everyone you see here has been arrested, or risked arrest, to protect God’s beautiful creation and the world’s most vulnerable.
Caroline Harmon, a mother of one, sat in the road as part of Rebellion of One in May 2021. She came to direct action having tried everything else she could think of to tackle the climate crisis. Speaking at the time of her Rebellion of One protest she said: ‘We’re hurtling towards a future, a horrible future, that I don’t want my child to have to live in… Sitting in the road is my desperate attempt to see us do what we need to do to protect the creation God has given us to steward.’
