EXTINCTION Rebellion activists are set to continue their four-day protest across Oxfordshire with a strike in Oxford today.

The climate campaigners are planning to gather outside HSBC in Cornmarket Street for a 'crime scene' action from 12pm to 2pm.

The group is aiming to highlight the Government's 'inaction' over climate change.

A spokesperson commented: "The Government is failing to do what is needed to keep us safe.

"They ignored the warnings about Covid-19 and now they are ignoring warnings of a 4˚C world from the Committee on Climate Change, a warning that could result in billions of deaths – with racially marginalised communities, and those in the Global South on the front line."

Oxford Mail:

Activists from the Oxford branch began the mass disruption campaign with a 'climate emergency banner drop' on the A34 on Friday morning.

The activities over the August bank holiday weekend served as a precursor to larger protests taking place from Tuesday in London.

The group has vowed to peacefully blockade the UK Parliament until the Government promises to debate protestors' demands.

Rebels from Abingdon will also join the action.
