London, UK. 1st September, 2020. Climate activists from Extinction Rebellion march from Buckingham Palace to a Back The Bill rally in Parliament Square. Extinction Rebellion campaigners are attending a series of September Rebellion protests around the UK to call on politicians to back the Climate and Ecological Emergency Bill (CEE Bill) which requires, among other measures, a serious plan to deal with the UK’s share of emissions and to halt critical rises in global temperatures and for ordinary people to be involved in future environmental planning by means of a Citizens’ Assembly. The Metropolitan Police made dozens of arrests for obstruction of the highway and breach of public order conditions after activists occupied roads around Parliament Square.
