London climate change protest

A crowd of protesters yesterday gathered in Hyde Park as they prepare to conduct a series of demonstrations in the capital

The demonstration, which XR describes as non-violent civil disobedience, comes on the back of similar action in November that saw thousands of protesters occupy five bridges in central London.

The campaigners, under the label Extinction Rebellion, had camped overnight at Waterloo Bridge, Parliament Square and Oxford Circus.

"Suddenly, what Extinction Rebellion has done is actually say: 'we are doing this.' And the state is so weak through austerity that they can't stop us".

Extinction Rebellion said the protests across London were just some of dozens planned across the world, calling for governments to introduce stricter measures to tackle climate change.

Solskjær's response to United's shortage of goals also suggested that he sees it as a personnel problem, and a costly one to fix. United face the might of Barcelona in the Nou Camp tonight needing a sensational win to reach the Champions League semi-finals.


Environmental consultant Dr Andrew Boswell, former Norfolk county councillor, joined activists at Marble Arch and said any inconvenience people experienced as a result of the two week protest was insignificant in comparison to the "catastrophic impact" of climate change.

He said: "We are here tonight to declare that we do not wish to be at war".

The group has called on the United Kingdom government to reduce carbon emissions to zero by 2025 and establish a citizens' assembly to devise an emergency plan of action to tackle climate breakdown and biodiversity loss. Rebellion!" and "We are peaceful! "Our objective is to create a political crisis, if that means people being arrested and going to jail then so be it".

The remaining protesters were sitting in the road with locked arms, chanting at the police "Rebellion!"

Tesla also stated it delivered 63,000 vehicles at the quarter, down 31% from 2018's fourth quarter. At Wednesday's close, Tesla stocks were down 12.3percent up to now this season.


Police said five of those arrested had been detained after the Shell building near the River Thames was targeted.

"We have no intention of leaving until the government listens to us", he said.

The majority of these arrests were made for breaching Section 14 of the Public Order Act 1986 and obstructing a highway.

At lunchtime on Tuesday police said there had been 122 arrests in connection with the demonstrations.
