CNN and Lauren Said-Moorhouse are squeeing along with other Warmists

Emma Thompson boards the pink climate change boat in London

British actress Emma Thompson has climbed aboard a pink boat that has occupied one of central London’s main traffic intersections for the last five days as climate change activists continue to protest in the UK capital on Friday.

Since Monday, the British-based Extinction Rebellion (XR) group has orchestrated non-violent mass protests, crippling some of city’s major traffic routes — including at Marble Arch, Parliament Square, Oxford Circus and Waterloo Bridge — to highlight “disastrous inaction” on climate change.

The grassroots movement has three aims: to get governments to declare a “climate emergency;” to eliminate net greenhouse gas emissions by 2025; and to have citizens’ assemblies lead the government on climate and ecological justice.

On Friday, Oscar-winner Thompson — known for “Sense and Sensibility,” “Saving Mr. Banks” and “Love Actually” — joined protesters in the brilliant Good Friday sunshine at Oxford Circus. She told reporters she had been inspired to join after watching the movement over the last week, Britain’s Press Association reported.

“This is the most pressing and urgent problem of our time, in the history of the human race,” she said, adding that young people have been failed by her generation and politicians.

“I have seen the evidence for myself and I really care about my children and grandchildren enough to want to be here today to stand with the next generation,” Thompson added.

OK. Others were super thrilled, too. But, um

Emma Thompson joins climate change protest – after hopping on 5,400-mile flight

Dame Emma Thompson arrived in London to join the Extinction Rebellion protests, even though she had to 5,400-mile flight to be there.

The 60-year-old Hollywood star flew in from Los Angeles and has stated she is willing to be arrested as part of the protest in central London.

A representative of Dame Emma said she needed to take the 5,400-mile flight home to London after working in LA.

She joined the protests on the day organisers announced plans to target Heathrow Airport at the start of the Easter bank holiday weekend, which has been condemned by London mayor Sadiq Khan.

Huh. Imagine that. Climahypocrisy. But, she couldn’t stick around to get arrested, because she had other Celeb things to do, and you can bet she drove away in a fossil fueled vehicle.

Meanwhile

(UK Telegraph) Police have begun carrying and leading activists away from the protest in Oxford Circus in an apparent escalation of force.

Specialist officers entered the ring of police around the pink boat that has formed the focal point of the Extinction Rebellion protest since Monday

Many officers wore hi-vis jackets with “protester removal team” written on them while others wire harnesses and carried boxes of equipment and protective visors.

The crackdown has started, partly because “some officers were seen dancing and skateboarding in the streets” with the protesters. Even crazy London Mayor Sadiq Khan has had enough, and wants a crackdown, pluse

After a briefing from Met Commissioner Cressida Dick, the Home Secretary said: “I totally condemn any protesters who are stepping outside the boundaries of the law”.

“They have no right to cause misery for the millions of people who are trying to lead their daily lives. Unlawful behaviour will not be tolerated.

Annoying the ever loving hell out of people, causing them problems, great ways to get people behind your movement, eh?
