Extinction Rebellion Need To Stop Disrupting Commuters And Start Targeting The Real Enemy

  Extinction Rebellion Need To Stop Disrupting Commuters And Start Targeting The Real Enemy Seeing Extinction Rebellion protesters pulled from the roof of trains in Canning Town Station this morning is a horrific sight. It’s horrific because, despite their faults, I support Extinction Rebellion. For all the things they’ve got wrong, they have contributed, along with the school strikers, to an explosion in public climate concern, now running at the highest level since records began. I hope that we are at the very start of a massive change that they have helped catalyse. I don’t want to see their activists getting hurt. I also know that hundreds, if not thousands of XR activists tried to stop the tube actions from happening.
