Extinction Rebellion’s reign of mayhem in London finally hit the rocks today when commuters took matters into their own hands and pulled activists from a tube train – prompting the group to cancel its planned Gatwick ‘shutdown’.
Bravo to the folks over in London, well done, you! For far too long, average, everyday people like me and you have been forced to endure the aggressive and oftentimes violent protests from far Left Liberal activists groups like ANTIFA, Black Lives Matter, as well as all the various climate change bullies like the group we are talking about today known as XR, or Extinction Rebellion. Today, the working class commuters of London decided enough was enough and they did what was long overdue to these liberal thugs.
People do have a right to let their voices be heard, and they do have a right to protest. But no one has the right to go so far as to stop traffic, like we see ANTIFA do in Portland, that is not free speech, that is fascism. As for me personally, I do not walk around protest lines, I walk through them if that’s where I need to go. If I am driving my car and protestors attempt to block my forward travel I will slow down, but I will not stop. I will not be held captive to this level of thuggery, and neither should you. The cure for 1984 will always be 1776.
Good job today, London, here’s to hoping that many around the world will follow your excellent example. Let freedom ring.
This morning London commuters furiously dragged a protester from the top of a train at Canning Town
FROM THE DAILY MAIL UK: As their eco-protest enters its 11th day XR activists launched a coordinated strike on three London Underground stations, clambering on top of carriages and glueing themselves to doors despite Monday’s city-wide ban issued by the Met Police.
But their efforts to disrupt public transport were met with a furious backlash from commuters, industry groups and politicians leading one XR spokesman to admit the move had been a ‘huge own goal’. A hastily-deleted tweet comparing themselves to icon of the nonviolent black civil rights movement, Rosa Parks, was also met with opprobrium from social media users. Video surfaced from Canning Town station of a protester seemingly being beaten and kicked by angry workers on the station platform having been dragged bodily from the top of a train.
Eight protester arrests this morning brings the total since last Monday to 1,711 as police warn XR’s antics are pulling officers from community policing and stretching resources to breaking point. The group’s leaders have called off a planned protest at Gatwick airport ‘in light of’ the response to the Tube disruption and a spokesman said the group would ‘take stock’ before disrupting the Underground any further.
In a statement Extinction Rebellion acknowledged one of their own protesters had turned violent this morning. XR said: ‘We are aware that one of our activists responded in self defence in a moment of panic when confronted by a threatening situation. He acknowledges his accountability for this action and we offer gratitude for members of the public who helped to protect him.’
The group went on: ‘The people involved today did not take this action lightly. They were a grandfather, an ex-buddhist teacher, a vicar and a former GP among others who acted out of rational fear for the future as this crisis deepens.’ Four people were arrested at Canning Town and Stratford and a further four were arrested at Shadwell where protesters (including 83-year-old Phil Kingston, arrested today for the 13th time this year) had glued themselves to an electric DLR train.
This morning several videos surfaced of ugly scenes at Canning Town station, showing a bearded man walking on top of the train as a crush of commuters jeer at him to get down.
One throws a cup of coffee over the protester and a group then give another commuter a boost so he can reach the protester’s ankle and drag him off the carriage to the platform. Once he hits the ground, the video shows, an angry group of commuters surround him and some were caught on camera seemingly kicking and attacking the man, before a London Underground employee steps in. Before 7am protesters arrived en masse at the east London station this morning and unfurled a banner reading ‘business as usual = death’. At least two scaled a train as it wanted to depart sparking violent fury from commuters. One of the activists was identified as Mark Ovland by The Telegraph. Ovland has already been arrested and released “several times” this week.
The 36-year-old was chased along a train roof before being pulled down onto the platform. He describes himself as a full-time Extinction Rebellion protestor who gave up his Buddhist studies to devote himself to climate change action.
Mahatir Pasha, who filmed the video at Canning Town, told GMB: ‘When I was there it was absolutely shocking scenes. I didn’t expect to see anything like it. READ MORE
