Rebel starter pack - FAQs
How do I find out about things that are happening?
- By email: https://xrcambridge.org/signup
- On the telegram announcements channel: https://t.me/xrcambridge
- Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram
- Come to a Supergroup meeting
There’s so much going on - how do I decide what to go to?
- Look out for actions that are marked “Mass participation”
- If you are keen to participate in direct actions or help in other ways, just say so in the Signal chat or at a Super group meeting and someone will link you in.
Do you have any stuff I can read in my own time?
- Take a look at a beautifully illustrated version of the Heading for Extinction and What to Do About It talk by Jess Agar
- Join the Rebellion Academy to work through interactive trainings in your own time
Can I help without going to actions?
- Join a working group - see xrcambridge.org/contacts and specific roles here.
How do I keep in touch with other rebels?
- Download the Signal app (it works like WhatsApp but without the data harvesting!)
- Ask to join the XR Cambridge Chat - this is a place to say hello, let others know your interests and say how you wish to be involved and join in conversations. It’s a busy chat but will give you a feel for current topics of discussion and is a route to connect with more specific chats.
- There are multiple other Signal chats for specific actions, task groups or particular interests.
Why do people use nicknames in the chat?
- Many people use their own names but it is recommended to use a nickname if you don’t participate in direct actions. This is an important aspect of ensuring individuals are not identifiable as ‘organisers’ or ‘leaders’, as this has legal implications.
- It can be hard to keep up as people often change their nickname if they think their identity has been revealed.
- It’s best not to store people’s real names in your phone contacts as this could compromise another rebel’s anonymity.
