Extinction Rebellion kicks off latest mass climate protest in London

Extinction Rebellion has kicked off its fifth mass protest in Trafalgar Square as activists demanded the Government stop investment in fossil fuels. Gail Bradbrook, co-founder of the activist group, opened the “Impossible Rebellion” with a speech expressing solidarity with nations that are disproportionately affected by climate change. A visible heavy police presence surrounded the protest, which is expected to attempt to disrupt London to “target the root cause of the climate and ecological crisis” in the coming days.
