Celebrity actress Emma Thompson has joined the Extinction Rebellion protests in London in the wake of flying from Los Angeles as activists intend to target Heathrow Airport over the Easter weekend.
In a video shared by the activist bunch on Thursday, the Hollywood star asked watchers to “come and join” the exhibitions.
She said she was unfit to be at the principal day of the challenge since she was “away” with her better half as she turned 60.
“I absolutely wanted to be arrested on my 60th birthday but I didn’t quite manage that,” she said.
“I’m so proud and thrilled to be part of Extinction Rebellion.”
A delegate of Dame Emma said she expected to take the 5,400-mile flight home to London in the wake of working in LA.
She joined the challenges on the day coordinators declared designs to target Heathrow Airport toward the beginning of the Easter bank holiday celebration.
In excess of 500 Extinction Rebellion nonconformists activists have been captured as experts said 1,000 officers were being sent every day to demonstrations in London.
It comes in front of an arranged protest at Heathrow Airport on Friday, with the Home Secretary cautioning “the full power of the law” will be utilized to end their rebels’ activism in the midst of plans to halt flights at the UK’s busiest air terminal.
The coordinator of the event said activity would be raised to incorporate Britain’s busiest air terminal on Good Friday, with around 500,000 individuals expected to fly out for Easter breaks over the bank holiday end of the week.
