XR Thugs Block Printing Plants of Right-Leaning Newspapers

When Extinction Rebellion (XR) isn’t blocking ambulances or holding plastic bag dances, they’re suppressing speech. The Left no longer supports free speech because they control key cultural organs such as entertainment, technology, and academia.

Environment activists blockade UK newspaper printing plants

LONDON (AP) Police arrested more than 70 environmental activists who blockaded two British printing plants, disrupting the distribution of several national newspapers on Saturday.

The group Extinction Rebellion said it targeted printworks at Broxbourne, north of London, and Knowsley in northwest England that are owned by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp.

Dozens of protesters locked themselves to vehicles and bamboo scaffolding to block the road outside the plants. The facilities print Murdoch-owned papers The Sun and The Times, as well as the Daily Telegraph, the Daily Mail and the Financial Times.

The group said it was disrupting the newspapers “to expose the failure of these corporations to accurately report on the climate and ecological emergency, and their consistent manipulation of the truth to suit their own personal and political agendas.

Police said they had arrested 13 people by Saturday morning at the Broxbourne plant, but delivery trucks had still not been able to leave. Another 17 people were arrested in Knowsley.
