Extinction Rebellion, London

Saturday 9 April 2022  Supporters of the environmental activist group Extinction Rebellion (known as XR) called for an end to fossil fuel investment with a mass protest in central London. Several thousand demonstrators sat down in Regent Street, Oxford Circus and Trafalgar Square.  Ahead of the event, the protestors promised to “grind the capital to a halt” with new tactics developed in response to increasingly harsh policing that limited the group’s attempts to cause disruption in protests last August.
