London commuters seen dragging climate activists off underground trains
London commuters physically dragged Extinction Rebellion protesters off the top of a busy underground train on Thursday morning.
A video shared widely on social media appeared to show a number of protesters on top of a Jubilee Line train at Canning Town station in East London.
A busy platform of commuters were seen jeering at the activists before one protester is pulled down from the train.
Climate activists had planned to target London’s underground network on Thursday, as part of their ongoing demonstration in the capital city.
Extinction Rebellion said the actions were “intended to bring economic disruption to the capital as part of the ongoing campaign to convince the Government to take meaningful action on the Climate and Ecological Emergency.”
