Eco-activists Extinction Rebellion have swarmed the City of London this week again, and have caused maximum disruption.

The protests have closed roads and stopped public transport and this morning commuters fought back against Extinction Rebellion environment protesters, as an activist was dragged to the floor after climbing on top of a busy commuter train in east London.

Holding a sign which read ‘Business as usual = death’, the protesters were met with shouting from angry waiting commuters.

Police have ordered climate change protesters to stop their action immediately or face arrest, in an effort to put an end to more than a week’s disruption in London.

“This is an emergency, and an outrage. The police must respect the law. This is a democracy.” said one protester.

What are your views? Are these activists going about their protest in an effective way? Do you support their actions? Or is this action counterproductive?
