London Commuters Have Had Enough Of Extinction Rebellion

Now, if they did a poll of the people at the train station, I bet a goodly chunk would say that they Care about ‘climate change’. They just don’t care enough to have their morning commute ruined

From ABC News

At least four climate change protesters were arrested after fights broke out at subway stations during Thursday morning’s commute in London as demonstrations by the Extinction Rebellion group movement disrupted services and enraged travelers.

British Transport Police said in a statement that the arrests were made after three stations were affected by simultaneous protests, resulting in delays for two underground lines. The protest was part of a series of demonstrations beginning last week by Extinction Rebellion, also known as XR, an environmental movement that aims to disrupt daily life in order to push the public and governments to take action on climate change.

At Canning Town station in east London, commuters threw drinks at one protester who was walking on top of a train before pulling him off and launching into a fight, video shared on social media shows.

“One commuter shouted ‘I need to get to work, I have to feed my kids,’ when the protestors initially went up,” Mahatir Pasha, a reporter for NBC News’ British partner ITN, said in a tweet.

I’ve always thought that the best way to get people on your side is to piss them off. Right?

At the Shadwell station, where activists glued themselves to a train, video shared on Twitter shows angry travelers yelling at two protesters, calling them hypocrites. “You’re stopping an electric train. Are you guys really that f****** stupid?” one man said, with another person pointing out the light rail service helps the environment.

Everyone will be totally willing to change their lives due to this idiocy, right?

    If they want to prove that we’re headed for extinction, I say we do all we can to aid them.
