Climate Activist Group Protests at UK Parliament

Activists from Extinction Rebellion UK protested at Westminster in London on Friday, September 2, calling for a citizen’s assembly.

Extinction Rebellion said some activists inside the House of Commons glued themselves together around the Speaker’s Chair. “Everyone inside the building had entered legally via an official tourist booking,” they said.

Banners were seen hanging from railings outside the Palace of Westminster.
