Environmental group Extinction Rebellion UK says its plans to take a break aimed at bringing more people on board to fight climate change 

Campaigners from the Extinction Rebellion environmental group in the UK have decided to halt acts of public disruption.  

According to a report in Reuters on Sunday, January 1, the decision by the British arm of the environmental group is aimed to get more people on board its campaigns to stop climate change.  

A statement released by the group as per the report said, “We quit”, adding, “As we ring in the new year, we make a controversial resolution to temporarily shift away from public disruption as a primary tactic,” 

The group also said, “What’s needed now most is to disrupt the abuse of power and imbalance, to bring about a transition to a fair society that works together to end the fossil fuel era. Our politicians, addicted to greed and bloated on profits, won’t do it without pressure.” 

Meanwhile, the report said that the UK government is in the process of introducing a new law that would make it harder for people to stage disruptive protests. This would include activities such as disrupting fuel supplies or halting public transportation networks.  

Extinction Rebellion also said that they had planned to gather over 100,000 people in April 21, to surround the House of Parliament.
