Greta Thunberg has stated that rules must be broken if they stand in the way of climate action.

Chris Baynes, Jane Dalton (2 days ago)
Greta Thunberg has called on Extinction Rebellion demonstrators to defy a police order banning them from protesting across London. The climate change activist spoke out before the group won the go-ahead to take legal action over the order, which has been condemned by human rights groups as unlawful.
If standing up against the climate and ecological breakdown and for humanity is against the rules then the rules must be broken, Ms Thunberg wrote on her Instagram account.
A judicial review of the ban, which the groups lawyers say is disproportionate and unlawful will be held on Thursday afternoon.
Human rights groups including Amnesty International and Liberty have also criticised the Metropolitan Police over the heavy-handed and chilling tactic.
Deputy assistant commissioner Laurence Taylor said the ban had been imposed following continued breaches of a previous order, which restricted protesters to Trafalgar Square.
The mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, distanced himself from the police order and said he had asked senior officers to find a way for those who want to protest the climate emergency we face to be able to do so legally.

Send them several miles offshore!
Why isnt this little activist back in school learning that her spiel is crap.
how about the world break the law by protesting children who skip school for idiotic causes?
Greta is stupid and she can’t shut up.
But why does the MSM think that they should report on everything about her?
I’m all for the extinction of this spawn from hell and her extinction cohorts. These are truly vile, arrogant sobs.
Why dont you put her in charge?
Leroy had better give her back those shoes!
Thats insurrection and the little twit should be thrown in jail
The ends justify the means eh? How many times throughout history has that been used to justify horrific acts? Sure, a little protest isn’t “horrific” - yet. But when the climate scammers don’t get the power and control they want...they’ll step it up, and use the same justification. Sooner or later, probably sooner now, things will get really ugly.
XR are so passe...
17 Oct: Spiked: Finally, a rebellion against Extinction Rebellion
Commuters of London, rise up against the eco-elitists
by Brendan O’Neill
The people are rising up against the elites. No, I dont mean Extinction Rebellion. I mean the Rebellion against Extinction Rebellion. Todays clashes on the Tube between the commuting working classes and the time-rich, bourgeois fearmongers of the XR cult is a wonderful illustration of the elitist nature of eco-politics and of rising public fury with the eco-agenda...
I’m all for exterminating Greta! Great idea!
send her the damages bill
Imagine giving a peace prize to a teen filled with hate.
Actually it would have been interesting if those idiots had awarded her the prize - as they awarded it to Obama. Greta is very angry and seems like capable of hurting or killing those close to her.
Imagine if she had the prize and then went on a rage and hurt/killed them. After Obama, it’s clear what the peace prize was worth.
[[But why does the MSM think that they should report on everything about her?]]
Because she has a form of autism, and the left and msm think that makes her untouchable- so whatever she says can’t be criticized because if she gets criticized, then that makes the criticizer a monster-
Fomenting riots, civil disobedience and insurrection. If only she was Republican.
