JUST IN: #ExtinctionRebellion using #ClimateChange as an EXCUSE and they want to use ‘ CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE ‘ saying they are trying out tactics used by demonstrators in Hong Kong by planning to use bike locks, cable ties and street barricades to create public disruption in 60-cities as 135-people arrested by MET on Monday #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Oct.07: MET have arrested 135 people taking part in protests organised by the climate change protest group Extinction Rebellion, the police said on Monday: Activists were blocking roads, bridges and squares all over London’s government district of Westminster to call on the government to take urgent action to curb carbon emissions………..“As of 12:30hrs today (1130 GMT) there have been a total of 135 arrests,” the Metropolitan Police said in a tweet.

Key points:

  • Extinction Rebellion activist are demanding action on climate change
  • Organisers say they are trying out tactics used by demonstrators in Hong Kong
  • They are using bike locks, cable ties and street barricades to create public disruption

Dozens of Extinction Rebellion activists have been arrested as protests take place across the globe: Thirty people were charged with committing offences in Sydney after hundreds blocked a road, while activists surrounded a government building in Wellington, New Zealand. Fifty people were detained in Amsterdam for erecting a tent on a main road.

#ExtinctionRebellion protesters are planning to copy civil disobedience tactics from the unrest in Hong Kong to try to disrupt Australian cities.

The climate change activists have begun a week of protest dubbed the International Rebellion across 60 cities from Paris to Mumbai to demand action about what they say is a climate emergency: “We’ve got barricades that have recently been used in Hong Kong so we’re going to try out what’s been happening in Hong Kong,” Tom Howell, one of the group’s Brisbane organisers, told 7.30.;;;;;;;;;”Cable ties and street barricades together, you can go and get a $40 bike lock, this is a really accessible thing.

“So it’s great that we can show that if people do want to take action, disrupt the economy … it only takes a few bike locks, cable ties and some street furniture.”

‘Wilful and deliberate disruption’

Extinction Rebellion has already been holding regular protests where they superglue themselves to roads or use devices to lock onto infrastructure: Since April, the group says 160 people have been arrested in Brisbane alone.

The activists regularly meet in secret locations to practice protests before they’re deployed on the streets: 7.30 obtained access to one of these secret meetings, where they were practicing using bike locks to chain themselves to barricades, just one tactic they have copied from the Hong Kong protests.

Queensland Police Chief Superintendent Tony Fleming said it was concerning that the protesters would adopt those tactics: “I think that would be very disappointing if people were to behave that way,” he told 7.30.

“I think the issues in Hong Kong and the issues in Australia are probably different and, whilst we are not in the business of taking sides in any particular issue — we’re very keen to be agnostic — the fact is … we can all see that is having a significant impact on Hong Kong.”

(LONDON) LATEST: Activists or Children unfurl banner asking are we the last generation at Heathrow airport on Friday ? But does blocking other peoples right to go to work on Thursday in areas around the city and preventing the police from carrying out other duties as they are busy arresting 500 protestors who are released and then return to the the frontline again …..really achieving anything ? #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Apr.19: Editor says here is our latest report on Friday: The activists, all born after 1990, unfurled a banner asking: “Are we the the last generation?” as dozens of police prevented them from blocking the road: The protesters said they were risking arrest to highlight the dangers of climate change. “To everyone reading about this, I’m here because I love you and fear for your future and my future. It’s that life and that fear that gives me courage,” said Oscar Idoe, 17, from Bristol.”About 20 protesters were moved on to the pavement by police at one of the road entrances to the airport………….Protesters stood by the tunnel that leads to terminals two and three, but all roads the roundabout were open as the group remained surrounded by police.” “Protesters can expect a robust police response,” said Assistant Commissioner Nick Ephgrave. “We are determined to keep the airport operating.”Heathrow said it was “working with the authorities to address any threat of protests which could disrupt the airport.

AP Reported: Environmental protesters who have blocked London roads and bridges for more than three days said Thursday they plan to take their civil disobedience campaign to Heathrow, Europe’s busiest airport, at the start of the Easter holiday weekend.The Extinction Rebellion group said it would mount a protest at the airport on Friday. The group vowed to escalate its campaign of disruption if the British government doesn’t step up action against climate change.London’s Metropolitan Police force urged the group to reconsider, saying the airport action could “cause further disruption and misery to thousands of travelers, many of them families, over Easter.”

At 17:32hrs on Wednesday, 17 April, a 24-hour condition was imposed at Parliament Square and the roads leading to it. This has been renewed for a further three days and will expire at 17:29hrs on Sunday, 21 April: The condition at Oxford Circus also remains in place. It will expire at 16:45hrs on Saturday, 20 April………The condition at Waterloo Bridge remains in place. It will expire at 21:10hrs on Friday, 19 April……..All three conditions stipulate that protesters should continue any demonstrations at Marble Arch only……………In order to impose this condition, the Met required evidence that serious disruption was being caused to communities in London……….Based on the information and intelligence available at the time, we are satisfied that this threshold has been met and this course of action is necessary in order to prevent ongoing serious disruption to communities: As of 17:50hrs on Thursday, 18 April, more than 480 people have been arrested.

Hundreds of demonstrators have blocked central London sites including Waterloo Bridge over the River Thames, Parliament Square and the Oxford Circus and Marble Arch intersections since Monday: The protest sites have sprouted tents, sound systems and even an ice cream van. Traffic has been snarled and many bus routes disrupted, to the frustration of commuters…………………Police have made more than 460 arrests……………Extinction rebellion co-founder Gail Bradbrook said “more people are joining us all the time.”“It’s certainly an option that tactics will be escalated if our demands are not met,” she said.Home Secretary Sajid Javid, Britain’s interior minister, condemned the demonstrations, saying protesters “do not have the right to break the law and significantly disrupt the lives of others.”“I expect the police to take a firm stance and use the full force of the law,” Javid said.

RT @MetPoliceEvents: There are strong plans in place that will enable us to deploy a significant number of officers to Heathrow and take firm action against any protestors seeking to cause disruption #ExtinctionRebellion https://t.co/jLnAcMNt6h April 18, 2019 at 10:10PM:
