Extinction Rebellion activists glue themselves to Speaker’s chair after storming House of Commons in latest stunt | The Sun
EXTINCTION Rebellion activists have GLUED themselves to the Speaker's chair after storming the House of Commons.
The chaos broke out this morning as three protesters stood hand-in-hand in front of the seat.
It is not yet known how the eco warriors – who held up signs reading "let the people decide" – got in.
A range of tours, however, are offered around the Houses of Parliament – and they may have been on a walking tour before staging their stunt.
The official XR account wrote on Twitter: "Extinction Rebellion supporters have superglued around the Speakers Chair inside the commons chamber.
"Right now inside Parliament a speech is being read out demanding a Citizens' Assembly Now."
