This afternoon a climate change protest took place in central London, organised by the group Extinction Rebellion. The climate activists blocked the streets causing traffic chaos as they chanted “12 years to save earth”.

Extinction Rebellion is a part of a mass movement that protests against the government for its inability in tackling climate change. It is now supported by top environmental academics across the UK including Rowan Williams, former archbishop of Canterbury.
