Extinction Rebellion Funeral Procession
Whitehall & The Mall, London. Sat 24 Nov 2018
'Only when the last tree has died & the last river has been poisoned
& the last fish
has been caught will we realise that we cannot eat money.' A placard quotes
a well known piece of Native American wisdom.
People with flowers for the XR funeral
'Climate Change: 12 years to save Earth'
'Rebel For Life'
There were several other arrests in Whitehall, including a man who
police had taken a spray can from, who said he was doing it for his grandchildren
Outside Downing St, people used their bodies to make the Extinction
Others had been arrested by police, also apparently for criminal damage.
The funeral procession halted at the top of Whitehall, waiting for
all the protesters to arrive
and then Gail announced that they were going to continue down The
Mall to protest at Buckingham Palace
A few police officers tried to stop them, but then realised that they
would not be able to, and simply accompanied
the marchers as they went through Admiralty Arch
and on down The Mall
Eventually coming to
Buckingham Palace - where my coverage continues on the
