The group told The Birmingham Tab that "We are launching and declaring our rebellion against the University, and demanding that they teach the truth, act now, and create a new politics to deal with the climate, social and ecological crisis".

"We really want people to know they can make a difference, everyone who shares us, takes a poster or comes along to an event helps to create change. It would be amazing if we could try and make the University go fossil free!"
