What is the Extinction Rebellion protest about?

Extinction Rebellion is a global environmental movement with its headquarters in the UK. Its declared mission is to use nonviolent civil disobedience to pressure governments into taking action to prevent climate system tipping points, biodiversity loss, and the threat of societal and ecological collapse.

More than 1,500 people were arrested during the protest, including Carice van Houten, who played Melisandre the Red Priestess on Game of Thrones.
