Extinction Rebellion protest: 100 arrests as London roads blocked

Demonstrators gather during a climate protest in London's Parliament Square on Monday

The group Extinction Rebellion is trying to block five central London locations Monday to demand the British government declare a climate emergency.

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.

Workers at Shell were prevented from leaving the building after members of Extinction Rebellion superglued themselves to the entrance of their office, just before lunchtime too.

Police have arrested more than 100 environmental protesters overnight as the climate demonstrations that brought chaos to central London enters its second day.

At Oxford Circus, protesters unveiled a pink boat that says "TELL THE TRUTH" and on Waterloo Bridge demonstrators brought trees, hanging baskets and skate ramps.

Financial Times also noted that Extinction Rebellion makes a point of having demonstrators arrested; in the last six months or so, over 200 people affiliated with the movement have been arrested.

The culpable protesters expect to face a jury trial where they hope to further broadcast the group's goals, the organization said in a statement.

Last November, Extinction Rebellion forced Westminster, Lambeth, Waterloo, Blackfriars and Southwark Bridges in London to close, issuing a statement that read, "Extinction Rebellion demands that the United Kingdom government immediately tells the truth and declares a climate and ecological emergency, that it reverses inconsistent policies and reduces to net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2025, and creates a citizen's assembly to oversee these changes". They plan to engage in acts of non-violent civil disobedience against governments in capital cities around the world.

"We are still in this position, and still facing this crisis", she said. "We must act now".

The busy Thames crossing was closed to traffic in both directions this morning, Transport for London (TfL) said.
