Cops Arrested Dozens Protesters During London’s Climate Crisis

Cops Arrested Dozens Protesters During London’s Climate Crisis
Eighty-five individuals have been arrested as a huge number of demonstrators possessed five scaffolds in central London to voice their worry over the
approaching atmosphere emergency. 
Protesters, including families and pensioners, began massing on five of London’s main bridges from 10am on Saturday. An hour later, all the crossings had been blocked in one of the biggest acts of peaceful civil disobedience in the UK in decades. Some people locked themselves together, while others linked arms and sang songs.

By 2pm the blockade of Southwark Bridge had been abandoned and protesters moved from there to Blackfriars Bridge, where organisers said they were soon to move west towards Westminster Bridge.


Demonstrators occupied Southwark, Blackfriars, Waterloo, Westminster and Lambeth bridges.

The Metropolitan police said all the bridges had since reopened

and that most of the arrests had been for obstruction under the Highways Act.
