Extinction Rebellion prosecutions dropped en masse after High Court rules London protest ban unlawful

Independent Wednesday, 27 November 2019
Prosecutions against Extinction Rebellion activists who were arrested under an unlawful protest ban are being dropped. Solicitors representing demonstrators said many had received official confirmation that charges were being dropped from the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) on Wednesday. Hodge Jones and Allen said its position was "futile" following a ruling by the High Court earlier this month. Judges quashed a protest ban imposed by the Metropolitan Police under the Public Order Act during Extinction Rebellion's October "uprising".
