i-D: Extinction Rebellion ‘swarm’ London Fashion Week

In response to the planned ‘swarming’ of London Fashion Week by climate emergency activists Extinction Rebellion this Sunday, the British Fashion Council told i-D on the eve of the autumn/winter 19 shows that they “are pleased that we live in a country where we have a right to protest peacefully”. Held just days after thousands of students walked out of school to join the Youth Strike 4 Climate protests across the UK (with the London protest marching on Parliament on Friday, the first day of fashion week), the Extinction Rebellion (XR) protesters intend to block the roads around the main catwalk venue at 180 Strand in order to disrupt “business as usual”.
