Extinction Rebellion in Parliament Square

Parliament Square, London. Wed 24 Apr 2019



 

 XR protesters sit in Parliament Square and some play music

 A group advises people on how to see their MPs and gives them forms to fill in

 People look up and shout encouragement to the people up in the trees

 who are hidden behind the foliage of the London Plane

 People sit around a sound system for an XR general meeting

 and people feed back from the groups who have discussed ideas for XR's future

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Phoenix tells people that police have started to remove the road blocks at Marble Arch

 

 A group listen to a portester's experience about being arrested

 Mahatma Gandhi and a string of banners

 The samba band prepare to lead a group to return to Marble Arch and support those there

 several people dance in front

 and lead them band off from the square

 

 and up Great George St

 They go down Horse Guards Road and then into St James's Park

 coming out on The Mall, where they wait for everyone to catch up

 

 

 before contiinuing towards Buckingham Palace

 

 

I left them on The Mall to hurry to Marble Arch, getting there over half an hour before they did
