this is from today's XR newsletter:
"The peaceful atmosphere seemed to finally affect our ever vigilant security forces because they carried out their duties today with gentleness and consideration. When one Rebel became quite distressed during their arrest, the arresting officer asked whether they were okay, and whether they preferred to walk or be carried to help put them at ease."
this is gross

Trees, it's trees, and we should be growing them instead of grain to feed animals which we kill for food.
London #InternationalRebellion occupation of five areas has survived everything the police has thrown at us so far. People keep being arrested, released, and coming back for more. Around 200 police moved to clear Parliament Square, and still failed.
People have been joining in that never knew about XR until these past few days. We've grown in numbers since Monday and we're looking forward to more fresh faces from Wales and Scotland arriving soon.
The anarchic organisation structure present at the Marble Arch camp has shown me that even with so few resources, even just a bunch if tents on a road, anarchy works.

Thousands of people have joined a “climate rebellion” in London, blocking traffic and disrupting “business as usual” to demand action over the escalating ecological crisis.
I'm laughing right now; The Guardian app has a page on #ExtinctionRebellion where they are asking you to include name, age, location, reasons for joining, protests or actions you've been involved in and other info "in as much detail as possible".
I hope no one's falling for it!
