Re: London commuters turn against Extinction Rebellion protesters
I support Fridays for Future but not Extinction Rebellion.
Although the guy blocking the train was probably acting on his own initiative and not representative for the XR movement, too many parts of the movement look like a radical doomsday sect. They are harming the cause of the fight against man-made climate change by attracting all sorts of weirdos and anarchists, just like the yellow vests did in France for their cause of social justice.
Fridays for Future on the other hand is necessary to remind citizens and politicians every week that something has to be done. After Trump effectively killed the Paris Agreement, too many people were made to think that careless life with short-term economic growth goals at the expense of the environment can go on as usual.
