Climate protests London bridge that is near arrests in 4 times

Climate protests London bridge that is near arrests in 4 times”

Member of the youth branch Felix Ottaway O'Mahony, 14, from Lambeth, south London, said: "This meeting has been very disappointing, we've set no concrete demands, he hasn't accepted any of our demands, he's avoided our demands as a whole, he isn't going to declare a national emergency".

The group also said he would request a meeting with the entire shadow cabinet for the demands to be presented.

Farhana Yamin, 54, a prominent climate change lawyer who glued herself to Shell's London headquarters during a week of protests, said: "I definitely think he could have taken the initiative to say Defra will show leadership that was necessary for the nation to come together, I was expecting a little bit more".

On Wednesday, the government's statutory advisers on climate change are expected to set out ways in which the United Kingdom can reach net zero carbon emissions by 2050, including reductions from transport, heating and energy production. But she added: "I am still yet to see politicians listen to young people and do everything within their power to protect our future".

Extinction Rebellion held two weeks of protests, causing chaos around London with rolling road blocks and protests on top of Docklands Light Railway trains.

But Dr Read, who used to be a Green city councillor for Wensum ward and is a lecturer in philosophy at the University of East Anglia, said afterwards: "The game seems to be up that the United Kingdom is a leader on climate change, the reality is we are just not".

Q&A What is Extinction Rebellion? They must respond to the climate and ecological emergency with the clarity and urgency our children demand.

Over 1,000 protesters were arrested during the 10 days of demonstrations.

Thank you for your feedback.

But Sam Knights, who works on Extinction Rebellion's strategy team, said the refusal to declare a climate emergency was "not only a political failure, but a moral failure". We need government and business to act now.

"There is a real feeling of hope in the air that after several decades of climate campaigning, the message is beginning to sink in".
