Environmental protesters have mobilized to shoot more than five of London’s most iconic locations, bringing roads to a standstill, with the purpose of forcing the UK government to take serious action on the”global climate crisis.”

Extinction Rebellion (XR), an environmentalist group responsible for inducing scenes at the House of Commons earlier this month when semi-naked activists stripped away in Parliament as MPs tried to discussion Brexit, claim they mean to occupy the streets for at least 72 hours.

(Decision )Social media was awash with videos and pictures of activists blocking the roads of Oxford Circus, Waterloo Bridge, Marble Arch, and Parliament Square with sculptures and banners, such as a large pink vessel sporting the words: “Tell the Truth.”

Climate Change Protesters from @ExtinctionR have only blocked Waterloo Bridge.

Their plans will be to bring London to a standstill with similar round-the-clock blockades in Parliament, Oxford Circus, Piccadilly Circus and Marble Arch @LBCpic.twitter.com/v6G3YjR7FV

Marble Arch

They have picked a nice day to deliver Marble Arch to a standstill. Just noticed a middle-aged woman carrying a placard with a wonderfully British apology for their rebellion:”Sorry for the inconvenience but I really don’t know what to do.” pic.twitter.com/alpha 54dUYRlmN

XR claim more than two,000 volunteers have signed up to the UK part of what organizers hope is an international week of protest. Monday will see protesters in about 80 cities in more than 33 nations hold similar presentations on the exact environmental problems, campaigners say.

“This is going to be a full-scale festival of creative resistance, with people’s assemblies, artwork actions, point performances, talks, workshops, food and household spaces,” the group says on its website.

The demo, which XR describes as civil disobedience, is determined by the back of similar actions in November that saw thousands of protesters inhabit five bridges in central London. Police detained 85 activists that day and organizers say that they expect further arrests on Monday.
