Welcome to the Rebel Toolkit

This is an on-line resource centre to:
  • Provide you and your group with the tools you need to succeed
  • A place to showcase and share the valuable work of other local rebels across Britain
There are two types of resource in the toolkit:
  1. A small number of best practice items that are selected from the submissions from rebels everywhere and edited and curated by the UK Communities Circle, they have this icon - shield-icon-16-(1).png
  2. Resources uploaded by you and your groups - equally available to other rebels and groups like yours, they have this icon - shield-icon-16.png

If you only want to come here for resources - that's fine! - however, if you want to know how to add resources, go to the Shelf called Using This Toolkit to find out how

Quick start - go to the top of any page and select - Shelves and sort by Name

The resulting order of shelves is designed to broadly reflect the Rebel Journey in XR:

This Toolkit

  • How to use this toolkit, how to add, edit, and update resources
  • How to contact us

Talks & Training

  • Talks and training can inspire and prepare you
  • And it’s really good to know the things that have worked before for others, before shaping your own action
  • Keeping you and your group legally safe
  • Knowing what to expect if your actions are deemed illegal


  • Posters : : Banners
  • Booklets : : Flyers
  • Leaflets : : Badges
  • Stencils : : Printing resources and more...


  • If you're taking any kind of action, the more people that know about it when it's happening, the better!
  • Using the appropriate media outlets, or speaking directly to your supporters, make the best use of the resources available


  • At the Local and Regional level, getting politicians & councilors involved will be effective

Self Care

  • You need to prepare yourself before an action, to know you have the personal resilience to carry it through
  • After an action you will need to do what works for you to recover your equilibrium
  • This can be in calming retreats, or quiet conversations, or in formal debriefing sessions
