Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Dailymail.co.uk: “More than 100 Insulate Britain activists get road-blocking injunctions”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

More than 100 Insulate Britain activists have been served with an injunction against road-blocking protests, the High Court heard today as members of the group held banners and demonstrated outside the building.

Protesters from the Extinction Rebellion offshoot have blocked major roads including the M25, M1 and M4 over the past three weeks, and three court injunctions have now been put in place but demonstrations have continued.

The original injunction, granted to National Highways on September 21, banned the demonstrations on the M25 and was followed by a second approved on September 24 which restricted protests around the Port of Dover.

A third injunction was granted on Saturday, banning them from obstructing traffic and access to motorways and major A roads in and around London – but this has not stopped the protests which again caused chaos yesterday.

The group, which is calling on the Government to insulate all homes across the UK by 2030 to help cut carbon emissions, has mostly focused on blockading the M25 but has sat down on other London roads since last Friday.
