Brisbane climate protestors a ‘danger to themselves and others’

  Brisbane climate protestors a ‘danger to themselves and others’ The Advertiser’s Caleb Bond has echoed calls for climate change protestors causing commotion in Brisbane to be stripped of their welfare, saying if they are “being funded by the taxpayer”, their first priority “is to go and get a job”. Extinction Rebellion activists in Brisbane have caused major delays and disruption by gluing themselves to roads and chaining themselves to fencing, actions that Mr Bond said are causing "danger to themselves” and “danger to other people”.“It is not okay behaviour,” he said. “Anything we can do as a society and as a government to stop them from doing it, we should be exercising.

Another protestor Julia Jones said: "We are sorry for the disruption, but the fact of the matter is I'm worried for my children's future and the government is not doing anything."

In Melbourne protestors halted peak-hour traffic, which prompted Lord Mayor Sally Capp to slam them as "disrespectful" to other residents.

"It's highly frustrating, it's disrespectful ... the fact that they're causing so much disruption to other people is unacceptable," she said.

While the widespread protests will die down by next week, Extinction Rebellion activists have warned their work has just begun.

They will hold workshops where they will educate the public on their mission and views – and in six months time we could see another week of unrest.
