    Thousands join Extinction Rebellion protests across London

    Climate group blocks roads and calls for peaceful acts of civil disobedience across capital

    Thousands of people have joined a “climate rebellion” in London, blocking traffic and disrupting “business as usual” to demand action over the escalating ecological crisis.

    Waterloo Bridge was blocked to traffic and turned into an impromptu garden bridge on Monday, with people bringing trees, flowers and setting up a miniature skate park.

    Protests and blockades also took place at sites across the capital in what organisers hope will be a protest lasting days or even weeks.

    The demonstrations are part of a global campaign organised by the British climate group Extinction Rebellion, with protests planned in 80 cities across 33 countries in the coming days.

    I had a semblance of respect for George Monbiot because of his support for nuclear energy, sadly he's gone gaga.

    Extinction Rebellion keep control of major London sites into a third day

    TfL turn off wifi on tube in bid to thwart group’s plans to disrupt public transport network

    Climate activists have kept control of four sites in London for a second night, with police saying they have caused “serious disruption” affecting half a million people in the city.

    After the Extinction Rebellion activist group threatened to disrupt the city’s public transport network on Wednesday, Transport for London disabled wifi on the underground at the request of the British Transport Police.

    Thousands of people have taken part in the civil disobedience protests since Monday, blockading four landmarks in the capital in an attempt to force the government to take action on the escalating climate crisis.

    Extinction Rebellion London protesters climb on top of DLR train



    Climate change activists climbed on a train and a campaigner glued himself to the carriage in the third day of protests aiming to "shut down London".

    Extinction Rebellion protesters have been blocking traffic at Marble Arch, Waterloo Bridge, Parliament Square and Oxford Circus since Monday.

    Wednesday's action - affecting a Docklands Light Railway (DLR) train at Canary Wharf - is causing minor delays.

    Nearly 300 people have been arrested this week over the protests.

    They aim to have thousands arrested. They want to side-step the UK capitalist media and explain climate destruction to the world's free press in open court.

    David Attenborough is right warning our extinction is on the horizon – Ken Livingstone



    Our children’s generation is going to have to reduce their carbon emissions by 90 percent if we want to avoid being the first species in history to document its own extinction.
    Last week, zoologist, environmentalist and broadcaster Sir David Attenborough went global across the media when speaking at the International Monetary Fund, warning that on present trends part of the world would soon become uninhabitable and mass migrations would transform the world. He warned that all governments had to meet their commitments to reduce carbon emissions that they had made at the Paris Climate Change conference in 2015.

    Christine Lagarde, the managing director of the IMF, asked David about the link between climate change and migration. He replied “It is happening in Europe. People are coming from Africa because they can’t live where they are.” He warned that the crisis would worsen as temperatures continued to rise: “More parts of the world will become uninhabitable, that’s what will happen. I find it hard to exaggerate the peril. This is the new extinction and we are halfway through it. We are in terrible, terrible trouble and the longer we wait to do something about it, the worse it is going to get.”

    Pointing out 70 percent of bird species around the world were extinct, he said “We have time now, ten years, perhaps twenty years, to do something about it. The longer we leave it the more difficult it is going to be and if we leave it too long… the natural system will collapse.”

    Oooh lookie- maggot has come a-trolling. You're a threat to them, maggot. You're also a threat to me and mine. Stay fucking anonymous.

    More than 300 arrested at Extinction Rebellion protests in London
    Police cells filling rapidly, with reports of people being taken to Luton, Brighton and Essex


    There have been more than 300 arrests linked to the Extinction Rebellion protests across London and reports suggest the capital’s cells are rapidly filling up.

    The Metropolitan police would not release up-to-date figures on cell capacity, but data from two years ago showed they had 799 cells available across London. With cuts to policing budgets, this number is likely to have fallen, so reports that cell space is under pressure are credible.

    Extinction Rebellion protesters, activists and legal observers have told Guardian reporters some of those arrested are being taken to police stations outside London, with several saying demonstrators are being taken to Luton, while others mentioned Brighton and Essex.

    The Met would not confirm or deny the claim. “Those who have been arrested are being taken to MPS custody suites throughout London,” a spokesperson said. “Contingency plans are in place should custody suites become full. We will not discuss [the matter] further for operational reasons.”

    However, despite the volume of arrests, anecdotal evidence from those on the ground suggests the police are approaching the protests with a distinctly lighter touch. One legal observer said the diminishing capacity might be a reason why police were arresting people so slowly. “The other thing is that if they come in and do a mass arrest, they might lose public support,” she added.

    'Decades of denial': major report finds New Zealand's environment is in serious trouble

    Nation known for its natural beauty is under pressure with extinctions, polluted rivers and blighted lakes

    A report on the state of New Zealand’s environment has painted a bleak picture of catastrophic biodiversity loss, polluted waterways and the destructive rise of the dairy industry and urban sprawl.

    Environment Aotearoa is the first major environmental report in four years, and was compiled using data from Statistics New Zealand and the environment ministry.

    It presents a sobering summary of a country that is starkly different from the pristine landscape promoted in the “Pure New Zealand” marketing campaign that lures millions of tourists every year.

    It found New Zealand is now considered one of the most invaded countries in the world, with 75 animal and plant species having gone extinct since human settlement. The once-vibrant bird life has fared particularly badly, with 90% of seabirds and 80% of shorebirds threatened with or at risk of extinction.


    ‘Their birthright is being lost’: New Zealanders fret over polluted rivers
    Read more
    Almost two-thirds of New Zealand’s rare ecosystems are under threat of collapse, and over the last 15 years the extinction risk worsened for 86 species, compared with the conservation status of just 26 species improving in the past 10 years.
