It is reported today, 19/09/2019, that 14 members of Extinction Rebellion including the four above have been sentenced following earlier trials at Bristol Magistrates Court for obstructing a highway, all being given conditional discharges and told to pay court costs. They were accused of blocking traffic on Newfoundland Road at the end of the M32 with a pink bathtub on 17 July 2019 during Extinction Rebellion's five-day 'occupation' of Bristol, part of a country-wide week of rebellion called Extinction Rebellion Summer Uprising, holding protests in five cities across the UK. Some protestors attached themselves to a bathtub placed in the road and had to be removed by a specialist police team, disrupting traffic for much of the day. The defendants said their action was to draw attention to the climate emergency. Photo credit: Simon Chapman/LNP.
