DM

A spokeswoman for the Extinction Rebellion group on Tuesday said one of its cofounders had been arrested by officers from London’s Metropolitan Police. The group, whose stated aim is to use nonviolent protest to force government action on climate change, has staged numerous high-profile protests in the UK, US and other developed nations including Germany. The group said Bradbrook had been arrested on charges relating to its action campaign against financial institutions known as “Money Rebellion.” “Extinction Rebellion cofounder Gail Bradbrook was arrested by officers from the Metropolitan Police at her home in Stroud at around 5:30 a.m. this morning for conspiracy to cause criminal damage and fraud in relation to Money Rebellion’s debt disobedience,” a spokeswoman for the group said.
