Extinction Rebellion was established in the United Kingdom in May 2018 with about one hundred academics signing a call to action in support in October 2018, and launched at the end of October by Roger Hallam, Gail Bradbrook, Simon Bramwell, and other activists from the campaign group Rising Up In November 2018 various acts of civil disobedience were carried out in London. A large number of activists in the movement have pledged to be arrested and go to prison, similar to the mass arrest tactics of the Committee of 100 in 1961. Citing inspiration from grassroots movements such as Occupy, Gandhi's independence movement, the suffragettes, and Martin Luther King and others in the civil rights movement, Extinction Rebellion wants to rally support worldwide around a common sense of urgency to tackle climate breakdown. The logo, using the circled hourglass extinction symbol, and branding was developed by This Ain't Rock’n'Roll.
