Police Warning To Climate Protesters
Host: The Evening Standard
Extinction Rebellion’s protest has entered its third day after police warned those demonstrating in central London that they “must” go to Trafalgar Square or risk arrest.
Nearly 600 people were arrested in the first two days of the environmental group’s two-week protest which began on Monday.
Police handed out notices across the borough of Westminster in an attempt to reduce the disruption in the city and concentrate the protest in one area.
But demonstrators defied those warnings and glued themselves to the Department for Transport building and to the underside of a lorry outside the Home Office.
