Still others blocked the entrance to the London Stock Exchange, calling on the financial industry to act…

    [Their tactics] led to more than 1,000 arrests…[and, along with naturalist David Attenborough and Swedish teen protestor Greta Thunberg,] set a new record for the number of times ‘climate change’ was mentioned in the UK press…Extinction Rebellion was launched after a UN report published in October last year…found that the world could avoid as much as $30 trillion in damages if it chose the more ambitious target set under the Paris climate agreement to keep global average temperatures from rising above 1.5°C compared to pre-industrial times…[It has shown protests can lead to legislative change.] Will groups in other countries do the same?” click here for more
