Climate Change Activists Disrupt UK Cities With ‘Summer Uprising’

Climate Change Activists Disrupt UK Cities With ‘Summer Uprising’

Major UK “cities grind to a halt as Extinction Rebellion block roads”: British newspaper Metro reports

Thousands of environmental activists caused five major British cities to “grind to a halt as Extinction Rebellion,”  a far-left group, as they protested climate change.

The members blocked traffic, occupied bridges, and disrupted businesses during their protest.

Climate change agitators targeted the financial district in the city of Leeds to “protest against the sector’s investment in fossil fuels,” the left-wing newspaper Guardian wrote. “Protesters locked themselves to the boats using metal tubes, and invited residents to join the group and enjoy their “car free city,” the left-wing daily added.

The climate protests called by Extinction Rebellion, a self-described “civil disobedience activist movement,” were described by the Guardian as “biggest act of civil disobedience in recent British history.”

The left-wing news website Buzzfeed praised the members of Extinction Rebellion for “putting their bodies on the line — laying down in front of cars, getting naked and gluing their bodies to windows.”

The news agency Reuters reported:

Civil disobedience group Extinction Rebellion staged protests in five British cities on Monday, aiming to renew pressure on the government to take bolder action to tackle climate change and slow the worldwide loss of plant and animal species.

The movement, which shut down four sites in central London for 11 days in April, said the latest actions in London, Bristol, Leeds, Cardiff and Glasgow aimed to generate momentum ahead of another phase of disruption planned for October.

“Right now we’re in a phase of movement building,” Larch Maxey, one of the movement’s organisers, said outside the Royal Courts of Justice in central London, where several hundred protesters blocked the road.

“We’re going to be doing more disruption in October in major cities around the world,” Maxey told Reuters, standing near a sailboat emblazoned with the slogan ACT NOW, one of five brightly-painted vessels towed to protest sites in each city.

Extinction Rebellion said the protests would run all week and include blocking specific locations, bridges and roads.

The agitators also staged ‘die-ins,’ a form of protest in which demonstrators pretend being dead, to decry fossil fuels and carbon emission. “People are dying right now of climate chaos,” an Extinction Rebellion member told The Guardian.

In reality, the panic created over the UK carbon footprint is unfounded. Britain has cut back emissions by around 44 percent since 1990. Prime Minister Theresa May’s government has pledged the make the country have “net zero” emissions by 2050, which would make the UK the first major Western country to commit to such a goal. The renewable resources account for almost 37 percent of the total electricity generation in the country.

These drastic measures have failed to appease the climate change activists who continue to demand radical ‘climate action.’ As Saikat Chakrabarti, the chief of staff to U.S. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently told the Washington Post their “progressive” Green agenda “wasn’t originally a climate thing at all. We think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.”

The activists mobilized by the climate change groups in the West are not well-meaning nature-lovers or conservationists. They seek to destroy the very fundamentals of the Western economy on which its freedom and prosperity rest.

These exact same kooks are the ones demanding immigrants be allowed in who average 8 kids for each wife they have….

    “….. 8 kids for each wife…” MULTIPLED by 8 Wifes…..

    It’s a planned, slow-mo invasion. That’s a fact too.

“I believe!”

The funniest thing is that these protesters appear to think that what the UK does actually matters. The UK’s manufacturing economy has shrunk to the point where nothing they could do could possibly affect the world’s atmosphere in any measurable way at all, not even if they believe the worst case.

It’s all just a giant case of marginal, useless people living in a marginal, useless country, trying to pretend they’re relevant through aggressive cosplay.

    This is our future by following the same path. From Rule Britannia to ruled to screwed Britannia. So much for stiff upper lips ,carrying on and sorting things out. Dear England and USA….you are/were never too big to fail. What made you great are now things to hate by the ignorant ingrates.

    These people don’t actually care about the UK. Much like leftists in America, their only aim is the destruction of the UK.

      Well time for them to take a rest and congratulate themselves. They succeeded!

      More to the point, they want to prevent the UK from leaving the EU and they want to EU to become a real European government so that the UK loses its unique identit(ies).

    Top Gear visited some of the former UK manufacturing sites. Now I know where the BBC finds all of their sets for the murder mystery series.

“Thousands of environmental COMMUNIST activists…”

Saikat] Chakrabarti [ AOCs Chief of Sraff and brain] had an unexpected disclosure. “The interesting thing about the Green New Deal,” he said, “is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all.” Ricketts greeted this startling notion with an attentive poker face. “Do you guys think of it as a climate thing?” Chakrabarti continued. “Because we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.”

    UN officials have said this before.

    This has almost nothing to do with the environmental policy anymore, with problems such as deforestation or the ozone hole,” said Edenhofer, who co-chaired the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change working group on Mitigation of Climate Change from 2008 to 2015.

    So what is the goal of environmental policy?

    “We redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy,” said Edenhofer.

Thousands of environmental COMMUNIST activists…”
You hit that nail perfectly on the head. They dont give a shit about the climate or the environment. They seek total government control of production and distribution on a worldwide scale. Fortunately for us they only have our best interests at heart. Wouldn’t the world be wonderful if people would simply shut their mouths and do as they’re told.

Give it all to Putin. Let him sort them out.

Time to bring kettling back.

Damn right there should be an Extinction Rebellion; a rebellion against the extinction of the British!

The British “climate” might also have been so much better had the population not doubled in 100 years. England alone, about the size of Georgia, 58M, standing room only …

    “95% of all the species that ever lived are now extinct. WE DIDN’T KILL THEM ALL!”

    George Carlin.

OMG! It gets hot in the summer! Whatever will we do??!!!

    I went hog hunting with a buddy in Kali’s central valley a few years ago and it had been raining all weekend. We didn’t get a damned thing. So we drove back the few hours to his place Sunday evening and it turns out his wife is entertaining guests. We got cleaned up and joined them.

    They’re talking about climate change and they were convinced the huge rain storm meant climate change is real. My buddy and I looked at each other and almost in unison we said, “No, it means it’s January. We get winter storms like this every year.”

Anyone who glues their bodies to windows should be left there long enough to sufficiently soil themselves and stand as both a visual and olfactory example of leftist stupidity.

    Arminius in reply to Dimsdale. | July 16, 2019 at 9:52 pm

    I would leave them there until they start to decompose, but I’d probably lose my job as police chief, huh?

    It’s not as cruel as it sounds. Once the flesh starts to rot they can separate themselves from the window, no problem.

Time to break out the truncheons to explain to these little idiots why they ought to move their arses. Keep swinging till they unlock their clever little chains.

Anybody want to bet these idiots are released at the station instead of being detained, charged, fined through the nose, brought to trial, and sentenced for their lawbreaking?

Gee, it’s like failing to enforce laws encourages people to break them. Perhaps we should come up with some different ways to discourage such activity.

“Ok, sir or madam, before we arrest you, we need to mark you for identification with this paintball gun.”

*Sput* OWW! *Sput* OWW! Hey! *Sput* That hurts!! *Sput* Does this come out? *Sput*

“No, it doesn’t. Now hold on, we only have another seven shots before I turn the paintball gun over to Bob. He paid for the next ten, then Mary bought twelve, and Harold over there bought a whole box of them….”

When will “activists” learn that they actually LOSE support for their (usually) fraudulent causes when they riot like this? It makes the normal folks in the city resent them for the disruption–especially when the cause is NOTORIOUSLY fake.

Coming to America in October

Just another job for Antifa

Everything English will be killed or converted to islam and all life will be not worth living long before any climate change, natural or manmade.

To win people over to your cause, nothing beats trapping them in a giant traffic jam.

They all drove there.
