Central London traffic has been disrupted by protesters who blocked off major hotspots as part of a "rebellion day".

Extinction Rebellion protestors blocked traffic at Lambeth, Tower and Vauxhall bridges, Elephant and Castle and Earls Court.

Organisers said 100 people gathered in central London to demand the government take greater action on climate change.

The "road-blocking protests" will continue on Thursday and Friday.

That's today's news, they're at it again and vowing to come back tomorrow and after. Not a single arrest by the Police, that's the order of the day. This is anti-democratic and anti-libertarian, therefore fomented by a certain political quadrant at many levels. It's not as if there are no alternatives on how to deal with it, it is a political matter.

Your reading comprehension needs some work.

Over two weeks, more than 60 arrests were made over acts of civil disobedience with some activists arrested more than once.

Why don't you try and find out? I'm sure with that attitude the police will have no trouble taking the time to provide you with the information you demand, rather than just doing their job normally.

Very good, I actually heard it in on LBC that there hadn't been any arrests. You go and find out before you come in wanting to play big boys games and,,, being gratuitously insulting.

Ah yes, that famously unbiased news source LBC. :rolleyes:

Police records don't go public immediately, it'll take some time before news outlets can accurately report how many arrests were or were not made. Given that the Met have been consistently arresting these protesters over the last couple of weeks, I don't imagine they would have suddenly decided to change tactic as of yesterday. But clearly LBC knows better, right?

For once I have some sympathy with the protestors' cause, but you can't block the public highway.

After they're arrested, they should face charges.

Interesting line from the police. Basically saying you can block the road and drivers will have to wait and can do jack **** about it.

It's a biased news source.

Well they're hardly going to tout the line of "sure, take the law into your own hands, run 'em all over", are they?

I'd have zero sympathy if someone were run over as a result of doing this.

No-one drives around in central London unless they have to, the protests will just hold up buses/delivery vehicles/emergency services and other people trying to do their jobs.

Every news source is biased. What makes LBC so bad? Regardless it can’t outright lie about things.


The police should be removing these people and arresting them.
