By Roger Hallam, Co-founder of Extinction Rebellion 

I have been here for several weeks and may be here for some time longer. But please remember to do this:

Take all your rage and fury
Take all your despair and heartbreak
Take all your love and compassion
Mold it and transform it 
Into a resolute determination to act.
To act and then come back and act again.
Again and again and again
Every day
Nothing is more important now than this
Nothing will be more important from now on
I cried as these words came to me
Because their weight is so great
We face the gravest responsibility
And the greatest opportunity for honour
The eyes of the world are upon you
Show them what courage, beauty, and humanity look like
Show them some damn spirit
Go to it, guys! All my love, Roger
