Cli­mate: Ac­tivists block traf­fic

The Press and Journal (Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire) - - NEWS -

Ex­tinc­tion Re­bel­lion pro­test­ers blocked off one of Lon­don’s busiest trans­port hubs.

Cli­mate change ac­tivists built a wooden struc­ture at Ox­ford Cir­cus in Lon­don, bring­ing traf­fic to a stand­still and were then sur­rounded by po­lice.

It comes as the group is plan­ning a “red handed” protest which will see it spray-paint hand prints around West­min­ster.

A spokesman said: “We will raise our red hands, tak­ing re­spon­si­bil­ity for our ac­tions – we all have blood on our hands.”
