Angry commuters have pulled Extinction Rebellion protesters from the top of a Tube as activists disrupted services across London.
At Canning Town station in east London dozens of commuters were seen pulling two campaigners, dressed in jacket and tie, from the top of a Jubilee Line Tube train after they unfurled a banner saying, "Business as usual = death".
The pair used a ladder to climb onto the roof, prompting an immediate reaction from commuters, including one who threw his sandwich at them. A drink was also hurled at one of them.
One Tube user reportedly shouted: "I need to get to work, I have to feed my kids."
As one of the protesters kicked a commuter to stop him from climbing up the carriage, the man managed to grab the activist's leg and pull him to the ground.
The two protesters were then seen being attacked on the platform by the campaigners before they were arrested.
A man who was livestreaming the incident for the Extinction Rebellion Facebook page was beaten up by the crowd before some commuters helped him.

LOLOLOL... pissing off and blocking... the people using public transport!!! The very activity they should be encouraging! LOLOLOLOL!!! OMG, that’s too funny.
Maybe a little Victorian left in those genes . . . !
To say nothing of the cyclist they sassed at the bridge in Halifax last week.
This story is stupidly written too - commuters, protesters, campaigners - WHO IS WHO?
Campaigners? Is there an election going on?
What could be greener than using public transportation.
these extinction faggots should be used into oblivion for causing people to lose money, lose their jobs, miss appointments etc!

Commuters versus Communists
One word: Harpies.
What is the Extinction Rebellion exactly? What are the protesters protesting against?
Extinction Rebellion members should precede everyone in extinction. Hint hint.
The usual anarchist/bolshevik suspects.
No nukes. Nuke freeze. Moratorium. Earth Day. Save the whales. Berkeley “free speech” Chicago “anti-war” riots, occupy wall street, antifa....
New names, new “causes”, same pinko a$$holes.
Thanks for the info.
The only concern these Extinctionists need to worry about is the state of their souls. That’s all they will take with them when they are extinct from this earth.
They have only 2 choices for the ownership of their souls: God or Satan. There is no 3rd choice.
