    I presume the London Stock Exchange has more than one door, after all they've probably got a few quid.

    Nicely symbolic though.

    It’s more likely than them not obeying orders because they agree with the protest.

    Yeah, a few tens of millions of displaced people here and there. No big deal, right?

    Yeah, tens of millions of displaced people because of climate change has to be a good thing, well done, plank. :thumbs:

    This is unfair to her, she does go on to say that population displacement is bad but it needs to be phrased right.

    I have no idea about the context of what was said or who said it or how accurate this is, so I'm not going to comment any more than that, but there is a general point that terrible people might also be opposed to climate change on terrible bases and they need to be excluded from day one. White nationalists might well campaign for measures to halt climate change on the basis that it will result in millions of displaced non-white people that no level of Fortress Europe will be able to keep out, and they assume that they will come over here and rape and pillage.

    "Members of Christian Climate Action and The Snowflakes Knitting Cunts Together"

    Fuckin'ell I knew it was bad in that London but if two groups of protestors with those names tried to stop people getting to work on the Wirral Line this morning I'm afraid there would be a completely different outcome to them sitting on their arses for 2 hours spouting that sort of shite whilst everyone stood on the platform waiting to get to work.

    I'd love to do a Scouse parody video of it but to be honest it would only last about 3 minutes tops.

    It would go like this.

    "We're from Christian Climate Action and The Snowflakes Knitting Cunts Together and we're gluing ourselves to this twain to pwowtest"
    "If I'm late getting to work this morning dickhead I'm going to take my wages out of your face"
    "But the world is going to die"
    "And so are you if I miss my clocking on slot Tarquinia, so what's it going to be you high jacking the next train or me smashing your fucking face in"
    "OK guys lets get off this train and let this old Scouse lady carry on to her cleaning job in Liverpool One and we'll try and do the 8.15"
    "Tarquinia this is all very confrontational so Terrance has an idea, lets forget about Mersey Rail and protest on the Ferry across the Mersey. We could board at Hamilton Square in Birkenhead? No one expects the Ferry Inquisition"
    "Oh my that sounds like a fab thing to do. Extinctionous rebellious what!. Let's stop these Northern people who are ignorant to the suffering world around them from getting to work on the most famous mode of transport in this region"

    Later that morning

    "This is Granada Reports. We will now take a break from our scheduled service to bring you news of a group of people called Christian Climate Action and The Snowflakes Knitting Cunts Together who decided to protest in Birkenhead this morning"

    I'm a Londoner and I didn't have any problem with the protests today.

    I don't understand why you say its so bad in London. Please explain.

    No I haven't.

    You haven't answered my question.

    BTW if you had been reading this thread you would know that some of the protestors had come from the North. Parliament Square occupation was a lot of people from the North.

    No actually I think you've missed my point which would entail that yes you've would of answered your own question.

    Jog the fuck on and consider that a good thread and good discussion has more than your opinion to it. Now I must get to my pasta.

    She says "they". As FridgeMagnet says no context.

    My experience of XR people on the ground . not the leaders. is that they are the same kind of people who would support migrant rights.

    I do understand in Green politics there is element that is quite reactionary.

    But I don't think the people I've met can be included in that.
