Dragged off and roughed up. Looks like the Brits are tired of their nonsense.
Angry Londoners furious at having their lives disrupted dragged ‘Extinction Rebellion’ climate change protesters from the roof of a train this morning.
The incident happened at Canning Town Tube station, located in London’s poor east end – a particularly stupid venue for Extinction Rebellion activists to try to pull such a stunt.
One decidedly middle class looking protester climbed on top of the train but was pelted with objects before being dragged back down to the platform.

Commuters now physically dragging protestors from the roof of the train. @itvlondon https://t.co/gDkXfJNxmL
Almost immediately, another protester climbed on top of the train but was also pursued and dragged back down.

Oh dear not middle class English people in Canning Town ??? https://t.co/6kcRIRfalV
London Underground staff had to intervene to prevent the protesters getting a substantial beating.
Another video shows commuters arguing with one of the protesters before forcing her to admit she’s a hypocrite.

People of all cultures and races can unite in mutual disdain for Extinction Rebellion protesters who glue themselves to trains and make getting to work impossible (because they don’t work, unlike the rest of us). In the words of @willchamberlain, “Jail.” https://t.co/ipAx6h5UZd
