The XR BSL working group has been working with members of the Deaf community to  create 10 basic Rebel Signs, which is not exact BSL (British Sign Language) but adapted signs for Deaf and hearing rebels to use to communicate on XR actions. 

Their primary function is to enable Deaf rebels to participate in actions and feel more secure if in an emergency situation, the secondary function is to be able to communicate en-masse in a silent and peaceful way.

If you would like to find a Deaf Rebel/ BSL interpreter willing to visit your local XR group to teach everyone please email

Also if any graphic designers/illustrators would like to help us make little postcards with the 10 basic signs visually represented please email

Please watch this short video and share with others

Can you imagine the inclusivity of groups of rebels chanting and signing at the same time? I CAN!
