LONDON PROTEST Climate change protesters camp at London’s Marble Arch


Environmental activists continued to camp out at London’s Marble Arch on Tuesday (April 16) morning following a city-wide demonstration to force the government to do more to tackle climate change.

Roadblocks at locations including Oxford Circus and Waterloo Bridge were due to continue night and day at each site and the demonstrators said the protests could last at least a week.

The protests are being led by the British climate group Extinction Rebellion and are to involve demonstrations in 33 countries around the world over the coming days.

Extinction Rebellion, which generated headlines with a semi-nude protest in Britain’s parliament earlier this month, has warned its members that some of them could be arrested for taking part in non-violent civil disobedience.
