Climate change protesters block central London roads

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION.

Environmental protesters blocked some of London's busiest roads on Monday (April 15) in a bid to force the government to do more to tackle climate change.

Protesters gathered on Waterloo Bridge, which links the cultural centre of the South Bank with the West End theatre district.

Extinction Rebellion, the group organising the demonstration, said protesters would block traffic around the clock, calling it a "full-scale festival of creative resistance".

They added that marches could last at least five days.

The group, which generated headlines with a semi-nude protest in the House of Commons earlier this month, has warned its members that some of them could be arrested for taking part in non-violent civil disobedience.
