    I am all for people having an opinion, however causing huge traffic jams and disruption is defeating the object somewhat. What part of the environment would they like to protect? All sacrifice their nice Holidays in Spain? How do they propose food is distributed to shops, without trucks? How is food presented for sale without packaging? How do they get the clothes they wear that are made in other countries to the Uk? I would have a lot more time for the cause if they provided answers instead of lying around in the road. 🤷‍♂️

    I missed the previous video but heard the 5 points on becoming a protester: 1 - don’t work. 2 - don’t wash 3 - wear eccentric clothing 4 - act like you’re morally better than everyone else 5 - create absurd amounts of litter even though you’re protesting to save the planet.

    Declare disruption of traffic and services a National Emergency and open fire on those clowns. Sorted.

    This guy literally has no clue what he is talking about. Refuse details of arrest? They will have you in front of a magistrate next morning, refuse details to the magistrate? Straight to prison for the night. Let’s see how you get on there....

    Dont be so cocky against the police they will not arrest people without their seniors instructions on a protest unless it turns into a vial scene. Once they arrest you, you will have to give your details to the police otherwise you make your own situation more difficult by resisting or delaying the proceedings. They will charge your with further offences... This video suggest the worst possible advices i have ever heard... If you protest, do that on a way that is legal and you won't get arrested maybe?
