  • Police have announced they have made almost 1,300 arrests of Extinction Rebellion protesters since Monday, as activists hope the weekend will swell their numbers for a protest march through central London.
  • On Saturday, Extinction Rebellion’s activists are hoping supporters who have been unable to attend demonstrations and actions during the week will join a protest march gathering at St James’s Park from 1.30pm.
  • Hundreds of protesters remained camped in Trafalgar Square, where police were continuing efforts to clear them from their final roadblock in Westminster, and at a new camp site in Vauxhall.
