XReads: ‘The flawed social science behind Extinction Rebellion’s change strategy’ by Nafeez Ahmed

December 9 @ 5:30 pm - 7:15 pm

XReads, an open and informal reading and discussion group for XR Oxford, discusses ‘The flawed social science behind Extinction Rebellion’s change strategy’ by Nafeez Ahmed.

Everyone is welcome to come and discuss this insightful critique of XR’s strategy, covering arrest as strategy, the famous 3.5% statistic, and race and class privilege. Approx. 40 minute read straight-through, longer to digest it properly!

The original article can be found here: The flawed social science behind Extinction Rebellion’s change strategy.

A print-ready copy for those who prefer to read offline is also here: Google document.

You don’t need to have read the whole article, as someone present will provide a quick summary at the beginning. But it helps!
