Over the past week London has been brought to a standstill by mainly white, middle class climate change “activists,” calling themselves the Extinction Rebellion.
Extinction Rebellion is demanding that the UK cut emissions, despite the fact that greenhouse gas emissions have already been cut by almost 50 percent.
Since the protest started on April 15, over 9,000 police have been deployed and of 1,000 arrests, only 40 people have been charged.
The crowds have been encouraged by Swedish teenager Greta Thunberg’s call for a general strike. This is a teenager who admits that her Aspergers condition makes her see things “differently.” She also has OCD and selective mutism.
