    nothing to Green & Black Cross who have provided a bunch of services to them for free (because that's how they work) - hopefully that will change - certainly needs to for them to regain any credibility.

    See my post directly above this one for more info!

    (Credibility in a general sense not from me personally, that's a whole other matter.)

    Yes prison, unremitting, unprovoked extreme violence. But on the bright side as much sex and drugs as you want.

    I think, if my daughter informs me correctly, that they call those pants Galaxy Leggings. You can almost see Uranus disappearing into a black hole there chuck :D Plenty of 'Up Uranus' faces from the plod too. :D

    Absolutely. I'm sure there are plenty of genuine people participating behind 'Christians Knitting Cunts' or whatever they call themselves.

    The Christians and the knitting cunts are two separate groups...

    They seem to be a big and fairly heterogeneous group arranged in the kind of way where dumb things are going to happen now and again.

    Also there is a big machine in motion at the moment trying to discredit them by any means possible, especially by propagating conspiracies about the links the leaders have to various businesses.

    There is easily enough naivety for them to be discredited by infiltrators too. There are people in there with their heads screwed on right, but I don’t think their current structure and means of operation is sustainable.

    Speaking as one of them, I think this is a real challenge (the bolded bit)

    Whilst local groups in small towns might have a lot of accountability and transparency of who members are, I am concerned by the massive growth of the movement now and how much infiltration there must be. And how this can lead groups into high stakes actions (like the drax action from climate camp) and prison sentences they are not prepared for.

    I dunno if it's a matter of conspiracy to simply state who the organisers are and who they work for.

    They seem to be making the same mistake as was done by RTS. A handful of people make all the decisions. The plod will infiltrate the clique and thus fuck them up.

    Emma Thompson, having flown in from LA to make a speech about how we should cut our carbon footprints, jetted back to New York on Friday, BA first class and chowed down on a delicious beef carpaccio. A true inspiration and role model to which we can all aspire :thumbs:

    I'd hope they were currently operating on the assumption that there are plod among them.

    LynnDoyleCooper Up against the wall motherfucker.

    The problems with RTS and its structure and what happened politically had nothing to do with infiltration though.

    And I'm not sure infiltration would make too much difference to XR given its relationship to the police and its political positions.

    Here's something on XR and its police/prison ideas Opinion: Unlike Extinction Rebellion, I know the harsh reality of prison
