A huge climate change demonstration has got underway in London with protesters blocking roads and causing "criminal damage" in a deliberate attempt to get arrested.
CNN noted, "Extinction Rebellion, which launched late previous year with climate protests that shut down five London bridges, made headlines earlier this month when members of the group disrupted a Brexit debate in Parliament with a nude demonstration".
Extinction Rebellion said: "We've tried petitions, marches, letters, reports, papers, meetings, even direct actions; and global emissions have continued to rise".
