Extinction Rebellion, blocking roads and disrupting and causing traffic?

Not to make this sound like a stupid question but doesn't blocking up roads and causing long traffic delays cause even more pollution in return to what you're protesting over?

Kind of contradicting don't you think?


How no one has snapped and driven into them yet is beyond me.

    They don't protest in order to gain a direct benefit from stopping the pollution created by a single street. Obviously, it is a tactic used to raise awareness and pressure lawmakers into taking actions that are able to make a significant difference.

    Too late it is a stupid question because if roads are blocked folk will walk or cycle

    Keep in mind that most of these twits are paid in dope to protest, so not a lot of common Sense going on with them.

    It is a place for the cultists to meet and pat each other on the back. They accomplish nothing. Their goal seems to be to install a global totalitarian state. These clueless dimwits need to be confronted and defeated by the normals. We can't have a small minority of anarchists destroy our civilization even if they think it is fun.
