Actress Emma Thompson joins Oxford Circus climate protest

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Actress told protesters she believed the planet was in serious trouble but defended her own use of air travel to get to London, saying she doesn't travel as frequently as she used to.

She also defended the government over inaction.

Organisers of Extinction Rebellion have called for non-violent civil disobedience this week, to force the British government to reduce net greenhouse gas emissions to zero by 2025 and stop what they call a global climate crisis.

The protests did not cause travel disruption on Friday during one of Britain's main holiday weekends, but police said they have arrested more than 570 people so far this week.
