I voted against the action in Canning Town on the tube and thought it was a terrible idea just like 90% of XR participants. Why? Because people will be completely unable to see past it and bleat on and on about it, not focusing on the issue at hand and the 3 aims of XR.
This has been my point the entire way. Actions like these turn some people against XR, and potentially against all climate activism. If XR didn’t use these kinds of tactics so much then I wouldn’t have a problem with them.
