Climate Activists Stage Week of Actions Across Europe

HeadlineApr 16, 2019

In climate news, activists across Europe held sit-ins, marches and direct action protests Monday as part of a week-long campaign demanding urgent action on climate change. In London, police arrested over 100 people as protesters shut down Waterloo Bridge and Oxford Circus, with others supergluing themselves to the British headquarters of Shell Oil Company. This is Theresa Sanders of the direct action group Extinction Rebellion.

Theresa Sanders: “It’s vital. It’s the most important thing. Sod Brexit. I’m sorry, I know we’ve got other things going on now, but if we haven’t got a future, what’s the point in anything?”
