      Extinction Rebellion restarts protests

      Climate activists will target Britain's parliament and other institutions next week as Extinction Rebellion restarts large-scale protests for the first time since the Covid-19 outbreak, organisers said on Thursday cited by Reuters. The group said small-scale, regional protests would take place over the coming weekend ahead of larger scale demonstrations in London, Cardiff and Manchester.

      Environmental activists from the Extinction Rebellion group took the streets of five British cities on Monday in a new wave of action, aimed at forcing the government to act to help avert climate change. As part of the so-called "Summer uprising" in all the targeted cities, Bristol, Cardiff, Glasgow, Leeds and London, a large boat with the words “ACT NOW!” is to be unveiled. The protests will continue until 19 July, event pages on social media state.
