London eco-activists turn to superglue

Environmental activists glued themselves to a train, lorry, building and to each other in a series of protests to force Britain to take more radical measures to avert climate change.


London eco-activists turn to superglue

Protesters across London are glueing themselves to things, from trains, to the Shell building, to themselves.

But why?

"I don't mind if I'm the least popular person in the world after this action as long as that issue is on the table and people are talking about it because this is so serious," said protester Mark Ovland, who glued his hand to a train in Canary Wharf on Wednesday (April 17).

The Extinction Rebellion group has ratcheted up its protests in recent weeks, blocking Marble Arch, Oxford Circus and Waterloo Bridge, smashing a door at the Shell building and shocking lawmakers with a semi-nude protest in parliament.
