'Our leaders are liars!' Scientist released from custody addresses Extinction Rebellion activists

"This government is guilty of putting the lives of thousands and millions of people and life on this planet at risk with their decisions," climate activist Emma Smart told a crowd of Extinction Rebellion activists after she'd been held for days in detention. "They are not leaders, they are liars! They can not be trusted!" After gluing herself to the department of trade and industry windows, the scientist had spent several days detained waiting to be processed in court. The footage was filmed on Saturday (April 16).
