Extinction Rebellion Protest about the Silence of the BBC

Two weeks of action, co-ordinated globally, began on October 7 under the umbrella of Extinction Rebellion. It was profiled as a coming together of movements against the threats of militarism and climate emergency. The XR Peace component was supported by Trident Ploughshares, Nukewatch, CND, Scottish CND, CND Cymru, Women's International League for Peace and Freedom, Stop the War, and War Resisters International.

On October 11, an XR protest took place outside the BBC to demand that the Corporation tell the truth in their reporting of the XR actions.

Here are some photos of the protest:
