I'm on the eurostar tomorrow afternoon, if any of those c*nts get in my way I shall most upset.

Have only seen photos of the demos, no live footage but they generally look like the same shower of professional crusty f*ckers who rock up to all these Occupy/Reclaim the Streets/May Day etc events

They can't can they??? That means they'll be getting the boat tomorrow.

Wait until they realise most of us have Good Friday off so they won't be disrupting much

I support what they are doing, it’s the only way to make decision makers listen.

Plus, I just walked round the one in Edinburgh

David Schneider made a good point earlier today, contrasting people's shock and dissapointment seeing Notre Dame burn, but the indifference to the slow motion effects of climate change which dont have the chance to create that moment of shock and dissapointment.

I haven't followed this story much - and like anyone else would be pissed off if I missed a flight or something - but I'm generaly supportive of action to get this issue on the map. What will it take to make people take it seriously?

As mass migration is one of the likely future consequences you'd think it would be an issue that would interest left and right.

Agreed, but if they go too far and be too disruptive all they will do is piss people off so much that they think F**K you F**K your cause.

I assume you never fly for example ?

Anyway one thought (nicked from twitter), why don’t we just leave the super glued ones where they are, check on them in a few days.

It's only by being disruptive that you get people's attention though.

The issue with protests is they are actually an ineffective method of getting political change, they mostly make the protesters feel good about themselves.

Agreed, that and protesting somethig is not the same as offering a viable alternative, something these people are usually very quiet on

Let us also not forget the stupidity of protesters protesting in a way to stop public transport. You know public transport, the more environmental method of living your life when you travel.

Can't muster any sympathy for their method, pissing almost everyone else off isn't a good plan.

I would presume a disproportionate number of them are are Veggie types, which would go a long way to explaining their behaviour.

As for those that glued themselves to the trains, environmentally friendly glue is not very useful is it?

Doubtless you are correct. I wonder if any of them have considered super gluing themselves to German wind farm rotors in an attempt to save the insect population.

If you think a bit of civil disobedience to force action against the biggest threat to all life on earth is disruptive you're going to struggle to comprehend the continued effect of climate change and the 6th great extinction.

They should be gluing themselves to the sides of this...

https://www.theguardian.com/environment ... on-problem
The Harmony, owned by Royal Caribbean, has two four-storey high 16-cylinder Wärtsilä engines which would, at full power, each burn 1,377 US gallons of fuel an hour, or about 66,000 gallons a day of some of the most polluting diesel fuel in the world.

...

But marine pollution analysts in Germany and Brussels said that such a large ship would probably burn at least 150 tonnes of fuel a day, and emit more sulphur than several million cars, more NO2 gas than all the traffic passing through a medium-sized town and more particulate emissions than thousands of London buses.

There demands are in 6 years we stop all flights, change 26 million homes heating systems and ban 38 million cars from the roads. They’re demanding this in the UK which has cut CO2 emissions by 25% in a decade and produces well under 1% of global total.

China add our reduction every 6 months .

They should protest in China , not bankrupt the UK.
