The group has been protesting on major roadways for a total of two weeks. Hundreds have been arrested, with angry exchanges between activists and drivers happening frequently.
Activists campaigning for Britain to be fully insulated by 2030 have been blocking off major roads on the M1 and M25 regularly over the last month.
The motivation for blocking off these important areas of travel is to shed light on the amount of carbon the UK emits each year from its homes – a total of 40 percent of its emissions.
Its intention is also to urge the government to change current policies in order to meet emission reduction targets by heating Britain’s homes in a greener way.
The group has written an open letter to the UK’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson, announcing that it will be halting its ‘campaign of civil resistance’ for the next ten days. It also acknowledges the immense disruption it has caused in recent weeks.
Attempts to deliver the message directly to No.10 were blocked, so the group has said it will be mailed.
