© Licensed to London News Pictures. 19/07/2019; Bristol, UK. Extinction Rebellion Summer Uprising 2019. Extinction Rebellion campaigners at Bristol Magistrates Court in support of 16 people who are appearing at court after being arrested on Wednesday when they blocked a major road junction at the end of the M32 into Bristol which caused major traffic disruption. Campaigners locked themselves onto a pink bath tub, and held 7 minute roadblocks on other parts of the junction complex. Extinction Rebellion are holding a five-day 'occupation' of Bristol, by occupying Bristol Bridge in the city centre and traffic has to be diverted and carrying out other events. As part of a country-wide rebellion called Summer Uprising, followers will be holding protests in five cities across the UK including Bristol on the theme of water and rising sea levels, which is the group’s focus for the South West. The campaign wants the Government to change its recently-set target for zero carbon emissions from 2050 to 2025. Photo credit: Simon Chapman/LNP.
