UPDATE 1-Climate change campaigners suspend disruptive UK campaign

Thu, 14th Oct 2021 11:37

(Adds detail)

LONDON, Oct 14 (Reuters) - Climate change activists who have
caused major disruption to motorways and routes around London
over the last five weeks said on Thursday they were suspending
their campaign until the run-up to the United Nations COP26
global climate conference.

Insulate Britain, which wants the British government to
commit to providing insulation for 29 million homes, have staged
more than a dozen protests which have seen campaigners blocking
motorways, other major roads and routes to the Port of Dover
during the morning rush hour.

The action has caused huge tailbacks and provoked fury from
some motorists. The government has said their protests have gone
too far and have sought court injunctions to try to stop them,
but without success.

"Insulate Britain would like to take this opportunity to
profoundly acknowledge the disruption caused over the past five
weeks," the environmental group said in an open letter penned to
Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

"Ahead of COP26, Insulate Britain will suspend its campaign
of civil resistance until Monday 25th October."

Britain will host the COP26 conference in Glasgow from Oct.
31 when it is hoping to secure pledges to cut carbon emissions.
But the Insulate Britain group says the government is not doing
enough.

In response to the group's campaign, ministers have said
they planned to amend existing proposed legislation to increase
penalties for those who blocked highways.
