Extinction Rebellion: Charges over climate change train protest

Extinction Rebellion: Charges over climate change train protest

The reactive group announced they would demonstrate at Heathrow today, and some 20 young people have already turned up to the airport.

The video emerged after three days of protests resulted in scores of arrests, as campaigners blocked bridges and roads in the capital, some disrupting transport further by gluing themselves to a train.

Cops have been given the green light by the home secretary to use the "full force of the law" against climate change protesters.

A Church of England vicar played a pivotal role in sustaining Extinction Rebellion's Waterloo Bridge blockade this week by inviting the protesters to use the facilities at his nearby church.

Maajid offered some advice for next steps: "Think the Occupy movement, think how decentralised it was and how lofty its aims and ideals were but how quickly it fell".

He said: "The sufferers will be the communities in the local boroughs where officers are being taken from the community areas and the funding and money has to be found to deal with what we are doing".

Extinction Rebellion has called for non-violent civil disobedience to push the British government to reduce net greenhouse gas emissions to zero by 2025 and to stop what it says is a global climate crisis.

RIP: The Conjuring inspiration Lorraine Warren dead at 92
Warren died in her sleep at her Monroe, Connecticut home Thursday night, her son-in-law Tony Spera wrote in a Facebook post. They investigated hauntings around the world. "I had the pleasure of meeting her & it will be a meeting I'll never forget".

In a statement, the group said: "There is a deep remorse for those whose holiday and family plans will be disrupted".

The force said it "continues to deploy additional officers throughout the London rail network to deter and disrupt further protest activity".

He said protesters could "expect a robust police response".

"We are determined to keep the airport operating", he said.

Hundreds of people protested in Dublin today calling for political action on climate change. Protesters are from Extinction Rebellion Youth and consist of young people born after 1990.

The pace of reduction in emissions called for by Extinction Rebellion is far faster than that urged by the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which a year ago recommended they be cut to zero on a global basis by 2050. Government advisors will suggest new targets next month.
