He looks a lot like the kid out of Mad magazine
Maybe they didn’t have any working class people with them to discern the meaning behind the ding.
BREAKING: XR activists strip politics bare in the House of Commons, and point out the real elephant in the room: climate breakdown and ecological collapse.

Live and direct from the HoC. Almost naked protest.
They ain't RTS but this is better than anything else thus far.
More idiots in the idiot house.
Well they have announced bold plans for this week. Nice to have something other than Brexit in the news.
Yeah I'm thinking bout going up and supporting for a day or two, nice to have something else than just weasel words and "let's build the party" politics.
Anyone else def going? I'm sure many/most of us here have plenty of criticisms and reservations of XR but a major shutdown of central London to oppose the environmental impact of capitalism? Maybe even some good old baby-eating.
I'm in Parliament Square. Growing numbers. Speeches. No road blocks yet. Less hippie looking than the previous demos.
This nonce is here too. Note the mobile number.
Waterloo Bridge is blocked.
It’s folk like this that are another problem!
31 counties of ireland are sighing with relief that he's not sporting their crests

'Major' disruption for Oxford buses hit by environmentalists' roadblocks
Completely blocked, too - not just a few people at either end, it's full of people sitting around and having a nice time in the sun.
i am, in solidarity, sitting around albeit out of the sun
So the BBC News at one is totally ignoring the protests. 20 mins in and not a mention.
in solidarity I'm in the sun, but standing.
it's made the website Climate protesters block London roads

I took the day off and have been going round the five sites with a camera, though I'm having some lunch at the moment. Very happy atmosphere so far but that can be hard to keep going - I don't know what proportion are in for the long haul. Certainly having multiple locations seems like a good tactic
Fancy posting the pics on the urban75 blog?
Last time it was the weekend. This time it's the Easter Hols. They should try when it's actually busy in London.
It's always busy in London these days.
Well yes but do you want to piss off tourists or bankers and politicians?
I'm heading back to edit them - I'll see any are any good!
Is it the same locations tomorrow?
I’m at Marble Arch and they look like they’re here for the long run. Spoke to a chap on one of the barricades at Oxford Circus and he said they were going to try and stay for a week.
Currently watching Alabama 3 on the back of a truck. There’s fairly decent sized crowd scattered around the junction and a lot of tents going up in the green bit.]
