FOLLOWING the sacking of the UK Chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng and the rumoured confirmation of the appointment of Jeremy Hunt as his successor, Extinction Rebellion “Rebels” have chosen the opportunity to block Whitehall.

A tweet from the Extinction Rebellion UK on Friday, October 14, read: “Whitehall blocked. Rebels outside Downing Street with a special message for our #fossilfuel PM…”

The news comes as the UK Prime Minister is set to give a press conference following the sacking of Kwasi Kwarteng and the likely appointment of Jeremy Hunt.

One person on Twitter commented: “Imagine if we scaled this up and in every city around the world? Change will not come fast enough to address the climate crisis from current elected officials and the business world.”
