An elderly man shouted: “If the Scottish Government’s North Sea oil and gas plans go ahead as planned, and are replicated worldwide, when will our planet crash and burn?

“Will my grandchildren see that?”

The man and a younger woman were then removed by the police.

Terrorism police list Extinction Rebellion as extremist ideology
Exclusive: Police scramble to recall guide issued to teachers putting climate activists alongside far-right groups

Counter-terrorism police placed the non-violent group Extinction Rebellion (XR) on a list of extremist ideologies that should be reported to the authorities running the Prevent programme, which aims to catch those at risk of committing atrocities, the Guardian has learned.

The climate emergency campaign group was included in a 12-page guide produced by counter-terrorism police in the south-east titled Safeguarding young people and adults from ideological extremism, which is marked as “official”.

XR featured alongside threats to national security such as neo-Nazi terrorism and a pro-terrorist Islamist group. The guide, aimed at police officers, government organisations and teachers who by law have to report concerns about radicalisation, was dated last November.
I knew it.

What utter bullshit from the police. XR is totally committed to non-violence. Some civil disobedience and blocking traffic for an our scarcely counts as terrorism...

What? That the police ballsed up?
ibid wrote:...When the Guardian first asked police about the document, officials said they would review the guidance to clarify their position on Extinction Rebellion. But following further questions, counter-terrorism police confirmed it had been circulated to “statutory partners” and had now been recalled. They said they now accepted that the protest group was not extremist...

The lack of respect for authority demonstrated by you guys, at your age, costs me my sleep for the worry of the future of our children. What sort of role models are these? Old, gin swilling vandals?

I've posted before a picture of the "Extinction Rebellion" placard on my front fence. Today, I was chatting to 2 elderly neighbours about the plants in the front garden, and the conversation (because of the sign) moved to climate change. They were interested, and supportive, both concerned for the future of their grandchildren...
