Police arrested ten Lambeth Extinction Rebellion activists before fortnight of climate change protests

Police arrested ten Extinction Rebellion activists in Lambeth on Saturday ahead of a fortnight of planned peaceful climate change protests in Westminster which began yesterday.

The Met Police said seven women and three men were taken to a south London police station on suspicion of conspiracy to cause a public nuisance.

The arrests took place the same afternoon that officers raided the former Lambeth County Court building in Cleaver Street, Kennington, where Extinction Rebellion rebels were storing equipment such as sound systems, batteries, bean bags, first aid kits and food supplies.
