Extinction Rebellion (XR) activists are into the third day of demonstrations in London. A 10-day series of “mass rebellions” started outside the Houses of Parliament on 1 September with gatherings planned across the UK during that time. #ClimateChange #Protest
Extinction Rebellion Activist Outside House Of Parliament, London
Nearly 300 people have been arrested since the start of protests in the capital. Some XR supporters staged a sit-in while others, calling themselves Animal Rebellion, locked themselves on top of a pink slaughterhouse truck parked sideways across a road in central London.
The campaigners said– they are demanding “a plant-based food system as a means to mitigate the worst impacts of the climate crisis and reduce the risk of future pandemics“.
