Climate protests London bridge that is near arrests in 4 times

Climate campaigners who brought 10 days of disruption to central London are to meet Environment Secretary Michael Gove on Tuesday to discuss their concerns.

Former Green Party county councillor for Stroud Sarah Lunnon, 54, who attended the meeting, said: "They gave us a concrete commitment to actually go and talk, McDonnell will ask for Extinction Rebellion to address the shadow cabinet, the shadow environment committee and also the Treasury Committee".

However, it said the shadow chancellor did not commit to changing the proposed date in Labour's climate change policy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050 - although he agreed to consider a new, more ambitious target of 2030.

Extinction Rebellion is an worldwide protest group that uses non-violent civil disobedience to campaign on environmental issues. "That is why we need the creation of a national Citizens' Assembly on climate and ecological justice".

British opposition leaders are pressuring the government to act on climate change after weeks of protests put the issue at the heart of political debate.

He made clear then that he was ready to meet the protesters, saying: "The point's been made, let's now have a serious conversation collectively about how we deal with this situation".

Extinction Rebellion will speak to Mr Gove at the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs on Tuesday at 11am.

James Harvey, spokesman for the Norwich group, said: "The catastrophic impacts of the climate and ecocide emergency will be felt within our lifetimes".

Activists said Gove committed to discussions with London mayor Sadiq Khan on holding a citizens assembly on climate change, however.

"On Wednesday, the UK Parliament will have the chance to be the first in the world to declare an environment and climate emergency, which we hope will trigger a wave of action from parliaments and governments around the world", Corbyn said late Saturday. "We should show that we're making a difference rather than simply telling everyone how important it is to change".
