Dozens of protesters including journalist and activist George Monbiot were arrested at an Extinction Rebellion demonstration in London on Wednesday.
Monbiot and other protesters are seen being carried away by police as they were arrested while lying on the ground and blocking the streets of London.
The movement has been blocking the British capital for nine days leading to over 1,600 arrests according to reports. Authorities announced a ban of all Extinction Rebellion protests in London on Monday under Section 14 of the Public Order Act.
