    'Extinction Rebellion' is a global environmental movement founded in the UK in 2018. Its stated aim is to use civil disobedience to attract government attention to the issue of climate change.

    Activists from the 'Extinction Rebellion' and allied groups have held a protest in central London as part of a series of actions against what they see as insufficient efforts on environmental policy worldwide.

    The participants marched through central London to promote their environmental agenda. Some of them shared videos of the march online.

    The ​'Extinction Rebellion' group operates globally and uses civil disobedience to attract attention of world leaders to the issue of climate change.
