EXTINCTION REBELLION unveiled today its plan to “paralyse” movement of oil supplies in Britain.
The group aims to mobilise hundreds of thousands of protesters in an unprecedented blockade of oil refineries which it hopes will “stop the harm at the source.”
The ambitious plan will be put into effect on April 9 with the intention of causing “maximum nonviolent disruption” of fossil fuel industries.
An Extinction Rebellion statement said: “We are calling on protest groups, NGOs and individuals to join us and take a stand to stop fossil fuels once and for all. Now is the time, this is the moment.”
The plan follows last week’s United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report which warned of the increasing and irreversible effects of climate change.
