Former police officers in the United Kingdom have joined climate protests organized by a group with a deliberate mission of getting arrested.

Among them is John Curran, who was actually arrested at another Extinction Rebellion protest earlier this year.

The decentralized international activist group employs peaceful civil disobedience and endorses mass arrests to force governments to take the climate crisis seriously.

Rob Cooper, the former chief superintendent of Devon and Cornwall police, is another former officer who’s joined the Extinction Rebellion protests.

You can hear the former officers’ stories in the video below.
