Climate Change Protesters Block Londoners From Morning Commute


On Thursday morning, commuters in London were not very happy to find out that protesters were blocking them from getting on the trains and heading to work... According to British Transport Police, they were called out to three different train stations after reports that protesters were climbing on the roofs of the trains and "gluing" themselves to them.

It was all organized by Extinction Rebellion, a group of demonstrators that make climate change demands on their local governments. They have previously targeted the British capital, London City Airport, and other government buildings.

"None of us want to inconvenience ordinary people," protester Robin Boardman said. "That's why we're doing this in the morning when it will impact business as usual, and not in the evening when people want to get home to be with their loved ones."

But the commuters were not having it, and decided to take the matter into their own hands. Check out the video below:

Police said they arrested 8 protesters.

"This illegal action is extremely dangerous, counterproductive and is causing unacceptable disruption to Londoners who use public transport to get to work," London Mayor Sadiq Khan said.
