A young man with his bag packed and labelled, awaiting arrest at the Extinction Rebellion protest camp in Vauxhall gardens on 15th October 2019. The climate change protest group was formed by Gail Bradbrook and Roger Hallam in October 2018 to pro-actively campaign on environmental and climate issues. From 7th-19th October events were staged in London with activists being permitted to camp in Vauxhall Gardens until a Section 14 notice was served by the Metropolitan Police to clear the site. Many protesters opted to be arrested, although the notice to vacate was later ruled to have been unlawfully obtained by the police. Digital image dated 15th October 2019.
