Extinction Rebellion Staged A 'Die-In' On O'Connell Bridge This Afternoon

More than 1,200 protesters, who have vowed to shut down London for two weeks, have been arrested since Monday.

"The idea is also to address the king because even if we are aware of the constitutional limits for him, we ask him to go outside these limits and disobey by symbolically declaring a state of emergency for the climate and the environment", she added.

Extinction Rebellion can be known as an environmental pressure group which serves the goal of urging the governments to bring an end to the climate crisis by resorting to the Civil Disobedience.

"We need to be rethinking the role of the scientist and engage with how social change happens at a massive and urgent scale", she said.

The group launched a fresh wave of worldwide actions on Monday, aiming to get governments to address an ecological crisis caused by climate change and accelerating extinctions of plant and animal species.

The Metropolitan Police said 23 arrests had been made at Billingsgate as of 9.30am.

A spokesman said 22 of those arrests were for failing to comply with a condition imposed under Section 14 of the Public Order Act 1986. One person was also arrested for aggravated trespass.

One campaigner who was arrested in April, when the group brought some of London's busiest roads to a standstill for more than 11 days, said he didn't join the latest wave of protests because he no longer has faith that he will be properly supported if he is arrested again.

Nearly 400 scientists have endorsed a civil disobedience campaign aimed at forcing governments to take rapid action to tackle climate change, warning that failure could inflict "incalculable human suffering". Extinction Rebellion wants non-violent civil disobedience to force governments to cut carbon emissions and avert a climate crisis it says will bring starvation and social collapse.
