EXTINCTION REBELLION: St Albans demonstrators head to London to protest climate emergency

 Published on: 12th September 2020   |   By: Holly Bullen   |   Category: Uncategorized

Members of the St Albans Extinction Rebellion (XR) group recently took to the streets of London to demand that the Government took immediate action on the climate emergency.

At least 30 of the group took part in the protest which started in Parliament Square on Tuesday, September 1.

Nigel Harvey, a St Albans resident and recycling company CEO, said he took part because the time to make a change was quickly running out.

He said: “The climate emergency will be catastrophic for St Albans.  But the impact will be far worse in sub-saharan Africa and the Indian subcontinent.  We are running out of time to make the changes that are needed.”

This is on top of the recent Extinction Rebellion protest at Newsprinters Ltd in Broxbourne, during which demonstrators from a series of XR groups created a blockade to prevent newspapers from being distributed. 

As a result, 52 demonstrators were arrested, including Bethany Mogie, 38, from St Albans.
