    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Climate activists, affiliated or sympathetic to the protest group Extinction Rebellion (ER), blocked Lambeth and Vauxhall bridges in London on 21 November, The Guardian newspaper reported.

    Other groups of protesters disrupted traffic at Elephant and Castle, Tower Bridge and Earl’s Court areas, according to The Guardian newspaper.

    The "swarming" rallies are part of the peaceful civil disobedience campaign to make the authorities treat the menaces of climate disorder and extinction as a crisis, threatening the future.

    Protesters have gathered at Vauxhall bridge too.
