Extinction Rebellion

Extinction Rebellion protests closed down central London for a week in mid April. Unlike many demonstrations which strike me as bonding exercises for those already persuaded of the cause, these protests seemed much more about reaching out and convincing the rest of us. I found this fascinating and I spent much of the week walking between the various locations. October’s seemed less successful, one badly judged protest on public transport provoking reactions from commuters and taking the headlines away from the real issue.
