A group of enraged British workers forcefully dragged a handful of climate activists from the top of busy morning commuter trains Thursday; saying the environmentalists were doing nothing more than preventing people from going about their daily lives.
“Commuters now physically dragging protestors from the roof of the train,” posted one user on social media.

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).

The group, Extinction Rebellion, staged similar demonstrations earlier this month; intentionally pouring hundreds of gallons of “fake blood” onto the streets of London.

Our own Phil Kingston, 83, could be facing prison for this action this morning outside the Treasury.
"The Treasury has been frustrating efforts by other government departments to take action against climate change"
Please pray for him and the others https://t.co/Oi31auJyKN

“Four people have since been arrested for criminal damage in relation to the incident,” reports the Evening Standard. “While eventually successful, the operation did not get off to the best start when the climate activists lost control of the hose.”
