72 arrests over protests at printing presses

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

More than 70 people have been arrested during protests by climate activists Extinction Rebellion (XR) outside two printing presses - which have led to a delay in some newspapers hitting stands.

Demonstrators blocked access to two print works at Broxbourne, Hertfordshire, and Knowsley, near Liverpool.

Seventy-two people have been arrested across the two locations, police said, and delivery lorries did not leave the Broxbourne site as of 6am on Saturday.

The Newsprinters presses print the Rupert Murdoch-owned News Corp's titles including The Sun, The Times, The Sun On Sunday and The Sunday Times.

The Daily Telegraph and Sunday Telegraph, the Daily Mail and Mail On Sunday, the London Evening Standard and some The Guardian supplements are also printed or processed at those locations.

The irony is that today's edition of the Sun was to feature a full spread article about climate change by David Attenborough, and now readers can't see it because Extinction rebellion have stopped the newspaper being delivered.  lol.  They had a woman on Skynews this morning and she said their actions can be summed up as "an own goal".  <_<:lol:
