Police Shut Down Four Extinction Rebellion Sites mdi-fullscreen

Extinction Rebellion leaders have admitted that four of their sites have now been shut down by police, including Lambeth Bridge, Westminster Bridge, Smithsfield Market, and a site on Millbank. See the flashpoints of cleared sites in Guido’s battle graphic above…

In a Telegram message to protesters, leaders admitted “police removal teams are moving fast” and of their sites, “8/12 [remain] standing.” Police forces seem to be moving a lot faster than earlier in the year…

Morning rebels! β˜€πŸŒžπŸ’•β˜•

Huge respect to all of you for going through the night πŸ™ Here’s the morning site review πŸ“°

1: Marsham St – We Are All Crew by far the densest site with c. 1000 rebels! Tents being encouraged to move by the police but morning dance vibes prevailπŸ’ƒπŸ•ΊπŸΌ- Gluing on actions occurring at 4 Government buildings within site, but police removal teams are moving fast. Laura the lorry looking threatened with police surround, 70 tents, 12 gazebos πŸš›

2: Millbank – the North are under a lot of pressure from police, looking like one roadblock about to go. Most tents packed up, arrests occurring and losing infrastructure. Brave and courageous rebels, we love you! ❀

3: Lambeth Bridge – Big ups to the SW & Faith groups for an immense 12hr stand off yesterday with over 60 arrests. They have now merged with We Are All Crew πŸ’ƒ

4: Horseguards – Love Rebellion feeling loved up πŸ’• 12 gazebos and 70 tents still up, seems calm, infrastructure growing! Kitchen functioning! πŸ₯˜πŸ₯—

5: Whitehall – People’s Assembly in progress, Jacob Rees-Mogg just walked past πŸ™„ – Strong determined vibes to continue to hold the site! Plenty of tents and rebels πŸ’ͺ🏼

6: Victoria St – The Scots are rocking it! 300+ rebels, holding site comfortably and currently underway with an action of BEIS. 60 tents, kitchen up and running β˜•β˜€

7: Trafalgar – Sound system on! Energy reviving slowly, lost some infrastructure in the night. Roadblocks good. A little thin on numbers, hoping for more to join πŸ’•

8: Westminster Bridge – After what we thought was a calm settling into night time, the police came back at midnight and cleared the site. Now moved to Plan B and joined Trafalgar. Huge love to the Londoners! ❀

9: The Mall – good vibes currently after a spate of arrests this morning. 50 or so rebels, tents, marquees still up and only few police about. πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘§β€πŸ‘¦

10: After a jolly night bedded down in Smithsfield Market, Animal Rebellion to take their 2nd site today on Horseferry Rd! πŸ— Welcome!

11: Global Justice now at St James Park, having a meeting this morning to discuss moving to a 2nd Plan B. 30 or so rebels. And toilets have arrived! 😁

12: XR Peace – are up and about and ready to join another site, possibly The Mall πŸ•Š

All in all… That’s 8/12 standing but this could already be old news πŸ˜‰πŸ“°
