Majority of Brits are against the Extinction Rebellion protests
Environmental activists, under the banner of Extinction Rebellion, have been attempting to "shut down London" this month. The protests in the UK capital have so far led to 1,642 arrests according to the Metropolitan Police and, as of Monday, have been officially banned.
While 66 percent of Brits named climate change as the biggest global threat in a recent Pew poll, the methods employed by the Extinction Rebellion protesters have so far failed to win over the majority of the public. As a YouGov poll shows, 54 percent of the public say they are to some degree opposed to the protests, compared to 36 percent in favour.
