Extinction Rebellion: Climate protest brings London to standstill



Hundreds of climate protesters have blocked roads in central London to launch a two-week protest as thousands of activists are expected to descend on the British capital aiming to occupy key sites around government departments and the Houses of Parliament.
Extinction Rebellion activist groups from across the country on Monday took drums and banners to 11 sites around Westminster, besieging bridges and roads leading to the Parliament of the United Kingdom.
Across the capital, meanwhile, signs reading “Business as usual = death” popped up on bridges and trains stations.

  1. Extinction Retardation. They ought to just drive a truck through them.

  2. If only it was raining they could all get washed.

  3. More power to the activists! At least we speak for what we believe in, and not hide behind a computer screen giving negative bias, just because they are too afraid to face the truth behind the illusion! We are strong and no one's negativity and false belief systems can dismantle us! We are legion!

  4. Thanks, Greta. πŸ™„
    Greta: How DARE you?!?!?!

  5. Freaks.
    Absolute nonsense. I would like to see how much glue the put on their hands.
    Padded Cells and lobotomies for them all.

  6. I survived several doomsday predictions. Regarding this phantom climate change destruction , all I can say is, bring it on mother nature, let's party!!!

  7. WHY ARE THE TERROR SCUM NOT STARTING CLEANING THE PLASIC OF THE BEACHES.MOST OF ALL IDIOTS ARE POLUTTING THE PLANET WITHOUT KNOWING IT WHAT A PACK OF BRAINDEAD IDIOTS.

  8. Use the system to change it. That's what I say to everyone who would argue that protesters are hypocrits because they are hooked up to the same carbon-fueled grid everyone else is. Change is needed. pleading to politicians hasn't worked, walking in marches didn't work, petitions didn't work, now this is the only option left.

  9. Its not JUST that they are stupid – its a special type of proud angry stupid that refuses to be corrected

  10. here is the grave danger – now they are silly – when the food runs short due to changes in the sun they will gain favor with the lemming public, blaming global warming. I wonder if 1 of them has even considered the implications of zero emissions. Grand Solar Minimum

  11. Dont see them winging about the extinction of cholera, plague and yellow fever, SARS, pandemic influenza, MERS, Ebola and Zika.

  12. It seems like Europe spring.

  13. MRS MAY SHOULD NOT HAVE STOPPED THE USE OF WATER CANNONS, IN FACT BRING THEM BACK OUT DUST THEM OFF AND USE THEM ON THIS LOT

  14. Women are complaining, yet they use nail polish, makeup, lipstick and buying new clothes every weekend

  15. What is the deal with the creepy thumbnail?

  16. I think all those 500 people arrested should be forced to do 500 hours cleaning plastic off beaches or parks

  17. Go protest in China or India. Or even better how about Somalia where people are starving and being cruelly killed by militants. They want to make change yet they can't comprehend that people are already starving, are already dying from preventable diseases. The world doesn't live like the west, and therefore have no right to tell dirt poor countries to get solar panels and not coal when coal is cheaper and will result in more prosperity. The hypocrisy is insane. Our nations had our industrial revolution why should we stop others from trying to better their country? Because we've already polluted the planet?

  18. I've never seen so many white people

  19. It’s quite ironic that Britain support hk protest but arrest its people for protesting

  20. Time to evolve to clean free renewable energy which will eradicate poverty.

  21. Judging by the clothing, I'd have to say it looks super hot in London for this time of year…. Right???? Giant emergency. Right?

  22. These Drones are pitiful.
