Extinction Rebellion Protests Hit London Airport, Demanding Climate Change Action

HeadlineOct 10, 2019

Extinction Rebellion protests are continuing around the globe with nonviolent actions demanding urgent action on the climate crisis. This morning, protesters blocked roads leading to London’s city airport and held a sit-in protest inside a terminal, disrupting flights. In Central London, hundreds of mothers with babies blocked traffic and held a “nurse-in” on Wednesday. This is protester Sally Davies.

Sally Davies: “What kind of planet are they going to inhabit? What sort of opportunities are they going to have? So, I couldn’t forgive myself, I wouldn’t be able to look her in the eye when she’s older, if I didn’t come out and do something.”
