Extinction Rebellion protesters glue themselves to police vans as tensions rise

Extinction Rebellion protesters have glued themselves to police vans as tensions rise at the Schlumberger building in Cambridge.

The action comes on the third day of the week-long ‘Rebel for Justice’ action, which is primarily based around the blockade at Trumpington Road and The Fen Causeway, however there are satellite protests happening alongside.

One of these is targeted at the Schlumberger Gould Research Centre in Cambridge – also known as the ‘tent building’ due to its appearance.

Protesters marched down toward the building to the beat of their drums before settling in, starting a drum circle, and gluing themselves to the revolving glass doors.

One protester spray painted ‘Ecocide’ in bright yellow on the glass front of the building and was later taken away by police and put in the back of a police van.

In response, one Extinction Rebellion protester decided to superglue herself to the bonnet of the police van.

Annie Rose told reporters: “I’ve glued myself to this police van because one of my fellow rebels was arrested for doing something that I believe, that I know she believes, we all believe was the morally right thing to do.” SOURCE
