EXTINCTION Rebellion's Oxford activists are set to return to the city with a series of actions in Oxford this weekend.

Following two weeks of direct action in London, the group will be back in Oxford on Saturday morning, with street stalls in Westgate, Templar’s Square, Elm’s Parade, Summertown and Headington.

The activists plan to 'chat to shoppers, hand out leaflets and encourage yet more people to join them in calling for urgent government action to avert dangerous climate breakdown'.

More than 20 Oxford rebels were arrested during the action in London.

The organisations says at least 150 Oxford residents took part in the direct action, which caused disruption across London and to the Oxford Tube and X90 bus services.

Both have now returned to normal.

Oxford rebel Jo Gill said: “The Climate Emergency means the UK is threatened with more floods, extreme storms, heatwaves and droughts. This is why 150 ordinary people of Oxford were part of the April Extinction Rebellion in London.

"They joined with 10,000 people engaged in a peaceful campaign of civil disobedience. This is an attempt to provoke Government action to tackle the crises that science, and David Attenborough, tell us threaten the “collapse of civilisations.”

She continued: “Extinction Rebellion Oxford is determined that extraordinary pressure should keep the Climate Emergency at the top of priorities. Each household, employer, council and our Government can play a part in transforming our society to achieve radical reductions in greenhouse gas emissions very quickly. Every step taken, everywhere, can contribute to achieving the cuts in emissions and temperatures we need.”

Discussing the action this weekend, activist Ben Kenward added: "We'd like to thank both the Westgate and Templars Square Shopping Centres for allowing us in to peacefully explain our Rebellion to shoppers, in the Westgate's case departing from their normal policy.

"This sensible decision is in line with the support that national business leaders such the Paul Polman (until January the chief executive of Unilever) have given to the Rebellion, because they know that the costs caused to the London economy are nothing compared to the devastation that the crises will cause. In Oxford we are currently communicating without disrupting."
