UK: Environmentalist protests expected in London area June 14

United Kingdom Alerte de sécurité

Climate change activists to protest in London area June 14; widespread transportation disruptions expected during morning rush hour

TIMEFRAME expected from 13/6/2019, 12h00 until 15/6/2019, 11h59 (Europe/London). COUNTRY/REGION London

Event

Members of the Extinction Rebellion (ER) environmental group are slated to stage demonstrations in the London area on Friday morning (local time), June 14. Participants are expected to take to the streets between 07:30 and 09:00 and block traffic on the A205 South Circular in Catford, A21 at Lewisham Station, and A2 in Deptford

A heightened security presence and widespread transportation disruptions are to be expected on Friday. The group has previously called for open-ended demonstrations; protests are therefore likely to continue in the coming days.

Context

Related gatherings took place in Central London in recent months, which have resulted in road closures, significant traffic congestion, and severe disruptions to public transportation and local businesses. Over 1000 activists were arrested during the demonstrations. The ER is calling on the government to reduce carbon emissions to zero by 2025 and regularly threatens to "shut down London" via a series of protests.

Advice

Individuals in London are advised to keep abreast of the situation, avoid all protests as a precaution, and prepare for likely transportation disruptions.
