Extinction Rebellion: London and Manchester activists arrested

Baku, December 10, AZERTAC

Twelve activists who glued themselves to concrete slabs in busy roads in London and Manchester have been arrested, according to BBC.

The Extinction Rebellion action, on Cranbourn Street in central London and Great Ancoats Street in Manchester, caused major traffic disruption.

The protests were against inaction to reduce air pollution, the climate change campaign group said.

Seven people were arrested in the capital and five in Manchester.

Manchester City Council said it recognized the urgency of climate change and said it had set an "ambitious target" to make it a zero-carbon city by 2038.
