‘Like mosquitoes’: Extinction Rebellion plans surprises for City of London

Activist group Extinction Rebellion plans to send mosquito-like swarms of protesters to disrupt financial, accountancy and media firms in London this year to mobilise broader popular support for transformative action against climate change.

The goal is to spark a worldwide conversation over how to shift to a low-carbon society in time to avert the most catastrophic impacts, said Gail Bradbrook, a co-founder of the movement, who holds a PhD in molecular biophysics.

“We’ll be like sets of mosquitoes coming into London — the aim is to disrupt the system, not the public,” Bradbrook told Reuters ahead of the publication of an Extinction Rebellion strategy document on Wednesday.

Extinction Rebellion, in common with a “new economics” movement of economists, academics and scientists, argues that a relentless focus on ever-faster economic growth is pushing the world’s ecosystems to breaking point.

“The economic system is acting like a cancer on humanity,” Bradbrook said. “The regulatory system, the accountants, the legal firms support the metastasizing of this cancer.”

Interestingly, they never seem to want to say exactly what type of economic system they want to put in place to replace the exist sorta-capitalist one. I wonder why.

    Do the posters here who rail against socialism collect social security ? Do they use public roads or heaven forbid vacation in public National Parks? Medicare ? State regulated utilities lije power and water ? State funded free public schools? Public state funded Universities ?
    All are creeping socialism !!

        Trump today cut the planned Federal pay raise if 2.7 to 1%
        He said that he was forced to do this because “of a national emergency or serious economic conditions affecting the general welfare”
        MAGA!! The economy can’t handle a 2.5% pay raise ?
        Teach anymore fake news stories about how the $15 minimum is killing jobs ?

    • Nighthawk says:

      Most of what you list are NOT socialist. But even at that, all those things are a mess, failing or going broke all because of big government involvement. And you think the answer to fix them is even MORE big government involvement? You people really are nuts.

    • Kye says:

      Every single program you mentioned are done for the public good in a common way and all financed by a capitalist economy.

      Capitalism means not having the means of production in the hands of the government. It does not mean there is never community projects. Where the hell did you learn economics, “free public schools”?

      You might also want to take a real good look at all the items you mentioned and tell me how many are a booming success. I know for sure if we could put our SS money in a private fund we’d have a hell of a lot more at retirement and we would OWN it and be able to leave it to someone upon our death. BTW, “free public schools” aren’t free.

      Trump 2020 Keep America Strong

    • Taxing capitalism to pay for collective goods and services is not “socialism”. You need a new straw man. This one is pretty weak.

    • Chumpchange says:

      Wow are you a brainwashed idiot.

      Social Security? Is it free? No. Do you pay for it John? Yes. Its not free. You pay every paycheck from the time your 15 1/2 years old with your first job. You pay for it for 50 years before you get to collect. Is it free? Hardly. My 401k gave me 12x’s as much money as Social security ever did and I paid in LESS to my 401k than I did into social security.

      Public Roads? Are they Free? No. Do you pay for them John. Why yes you do. Your state, local and gasoline taxes pay to maintain them. The Federal government did not build one inch of ROADS….Local contractors do and did.

      National Parks. Are they Free? Rarely? Who pays for them? YOU do John with your federal income taxes, state and local taxes. New Jersey residents pay for Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming.

      Medicare. Is it free John? That would be a bid NO. I pay 134.00 a month for medicare. I have been paying for medicare for 44 years. What you don’t realize is that Medicare for all is not going to be free. A poor person is still going to have to pay for it, only this time they will get serious, pull you out from under your tent on La Boulevard and make you go to work. That’s communism. No fuking excuses mate.

      Utilities. I pay a HUGE FUKING WATER and sewer and garbage bill every month. IS IT FREE? NO. Never has been. Whenever they need to build a new treatment plant they pass a bond hearing and guess what….MY TAXES GO UP. It’s NOT FREE. I PAY FOR IT.

      State-funded free schools? I can tell you must not check your tax bill every year. You probably still live in your momma’s basement and work as a paid Antifa thug by night, because I FOR ONE AM TAXED RATHER HEAVILY for those schools and I haven’t had a child in school in about 40 years.

      FREE Universities. Do tell? I would suspect they would have an enrollment of about 1 billion if they were FREE. A waiting list a mile long.

      BZZZZZZZZZTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT……You lose but thank you for playing.

      • FunnyThat says:

        Democrats worship the government, so it’s understandable when a career bureaucrat gets fired or quits. They don’t care about much else but they like themselves some government.

  2. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Conservatives consider government programs not directly benefitting them as socialist. SNAP is socialist. Social Security is not. TANF is socialist. Unemployment benefits are not. Tuition grants are socialist. Highways are not. Universal healthcare and Medicaid are socialist. Medicare is not.

    They use ‘socialist’ as a shillelagh to bash those with whom they have disagreements.

    They bash Social Security and Medicare but collect on it.

    So what is socialism?

    • liljeffyatemypuppy says:

      I give up.
      Is it lying about joining the Army during the Vietnam war and then criticizing others that didn’t lie as an excuse?

    • Kye says:

      “What is socialism?” Venezuela. Next question?

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Kye,

        So socialism is Venezuela? That makes no sense. Maduro is described as a dictator who has committed crimes against humanity (sounds kinda like tRump).

        Anyway what does Venezuela have to do with the US?

        • Kye says:

          Are you saying “socialism is Venezuela” makes no sense even though you KNOW Venezuela is socialist/communist? Where were you when everyone else watched the decline of the richest, most productive nation in South America deteriorate into an impoverished shithole under socialism? Are you doing this again my pinko friend?: https://a.disquscdn.com/get?url=https%3A%2F%2Fthoughtcatalog.files.wordpress.com%2F2017%2F01%2Fheadupass.jpg&key=-uh6C-K_km3QFus59pHFzQ&w=600&h=556

          Maduro is described as a LEFT-WING dictator just like Hitler, Mao, Stalin and all the rest. They are socialists and communists which are nothing more than socialists with power. What crimes against humanity has Trump committed other than silly leftist lies bouncing around that hate filled head of yours?

          Venezuela has almost nothing to do with the US but your question was not what Venezuela has to do with the US but rather “So what is socialism”? Venezuela is exactly what happens when a basically free country with a basically free market is taken over by socialists.

          Trump 2020 Keep the commies in Venezuela.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            And you answered “Venezuela”, indicating you know nothing about ‘socialism’.

            It appears what you actually fear that the US will devolve into a dictatorship, where the dictator rigs elections, uses his/her office to punish political enemies, uses the office to enrich themselves/family and rigs the courts.

            How would you classify nations such as Israel, the UK, France, Germany, Sweden, Australia etc? If the US adopted health care systems or higher ed systems similar to these nations would you be afraid for the nation?

    • Whenever I want to know what Conservatives think, I always consult a militant atheist and democratic party activist. They don’t seem to realize that people in their own party are actually running campaigns as open “socialists”. It’s in their own campaign literature, not something “conservatives” (whoever they are) say about them.

  3. Bill589 says:

    Troll Elwood P. Dowd is lying yet again. That’s what Leftist trolls do.
    Leftism and truth cannot coexist.

    Socialism never works. Liberty does.
    Socialism = Venezuela

  4. Kye says:

    “It appears what you actually fear that the US will devolve into a dictatorship, where the dictator rigs elections, uses his/her office to punish political enemies, uses the office to enrich themselves/family and rigs the courts.”

    I actually do worry that there may be enough of you Red Diaper Bolsheviks to do all those things here. Hell, Hillary tried to rig the 2016 election and the DNC rigged it in her favor against Sanders. Right now the DNC is busy as bees trying to rig this election to keep Sanders out. When Obama used the IRS, DOJ and other government agencies to punish his enemies you seemed just fuking fine with it. And as long as it’s the Clinton Foundation, The Obama Foundation, Chelsea getting million $ apartments and jobs, or some Bribem kid being paid money for his “connections” you’re okay with it. You are the quintessential commie hypocrite. And when it comes to rigging courts you commies invented it beginning with FDR. You have rigged courts for decades causing lawful policies voted on by The People to be overturned for partisan reasons. That’s why you’re so worried. You’re afraid we learned all too well off you corruptocrats.

    As I pointed out Venezuela “devolve(d) into a dictatorship” but allowing their people to be lured by the siren song of “free stuff” just like the crazy-azzed leftists are doing to the kids today. Their economy was ruined and is now in tatters. Their progress destroyed by the greed of the socialists stealing property and companies without any ability to run them. Their freedom was given away to fakes with phony promises and their own greed wanting what the other guy had without earning it. They elected their own demise in the form of a socialist who became a billionaire by stealing the wealth of a nation. Just like Sanders or Buttpeg or Herr Bloomberg or any of your “free healthcare to illegals” fuk head commies running as Democrats will do if they can.

    If you don’t rescue the Democrat Party from the communists currently running it there will be no Democrat Party. And if you’re not worried that “the US will devolve into a dictatorship” by these guys you either aren’t very smart, not paying attention or you’re one of them.

    Trump 2020 Throw the commies o-u-t.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Kye,

      Never forget: “Much of what conservatives believe is not true.”

      HRC tried to rig 2016 election? Yet, Crooked Donald and Crooked Bill Barr haven’t pursued charges or an investigation.

      IRS targeting controversy: On October 23, 2015, the Justice Department declared that no criminal charges would be filed. On September 8, 2017, the Trump Justice Department declined to reopen the criminal investigation into Lois Lerner, a central figure in the controversy. Later the Trump “Justice” Dept did settle out of court awarding welfare to several conservative groups.

      What charges do you know of against the Clinton Foundation and the Clinton family?

      What crime did Hunter Biden commit?

      Venezuela was flush until oil prices plummeted in 2014, and oil was the source of 90%+ of revenues. They had few reserves. They stupidly maintained price controls on goods.

      And the GOP is already over. It’s all tRump now.

      And if you’re not worried that “the US will devolve into a dictatorship” by tRump you either aren’t very smart, not paying attention or you’re one of them. You’re one of them. Just another tRump Brownshit.
