Britain is no country for an old Extinction Rebellion Protester called Arnold Pease
Arnold was taking part in one of scores of Extinction Rebellion non-violent civil disobedience protests that have been taking place in major cities across Britain over the past two weeks in an effort to try to highlight the escalating climate crisis.
Unlike XR’s previous rebellions in April and October last year, which saw thousands of people blockade large parts of central London day after day, Arnold was a protester who was focused on what he believes is a key actor driving the world's climate crisis : the British Government.
Arnold was arrested as a threat to public order.
As he was escorted away an obliging police officer carried his coat and walking stick.
