The co-founder of the protest group invites people to join
Since the group was set up last year, members have shut bridges, poured buckets of fake blood outside Downing Street, blockaded the BBC and stripped semi-naked in Parliament.It has three core demands: for the government to "tell the truth about climate change"; to reduce carbon emissions to zero by 2025; and to create a citizens' assembly to oversee progress.Controversially, the group is trying to get as many people arrested as possible.But critics say they cause unnecessary disruption and waste police time when forces are already overstretched.
