Extermination Rebellion descends into bitter fights during flights while founder compares it to eating meat and accuses celebrities of hypocrisy
- One of the founders of the Roger Hallam group calls air travel a ‘no no’
- Many leading supporters of Extinction Rebellion make the miles
- The Heathrow extension in London is a “crime against humanity”
The tension is growing with the Extinction Rebellion campaign group while activists continue to discuss whether flying is ever acceptable.
One of the founders of the climate crisis group, Roger Hallam, calls air travel a “no no”, despite the fact that many of the supporters of celebrities often make air miles with airplanes.
My Hallam also claimed that flying was bad for every “vague moral person in this society” and also compared the use of airplanes with “eating meat.”
During the Free Flight UK podcast, he said, “It’s just a physical fact that it’s more than bad.”
It is said that members of the group have difficulty agreeing to a flight policy. The group is pictured above after it protested at City Airport in London

Free Flight UK encourages people to make a promise to stop flying and Mr. Hallam added that the planned extension of Heathrow Airport was a “crime against humanity.”
Extinction Rebellion showed how they felt about air travel in October, after members had taken over City Airport in London, with some gluing themselves to planes.
The group has also suggested ration flights to the UK government, while other sections have said that people should have a return flight every two years.

According to The Telegraph, senior members are concerned about famous donors who donate to the campaign if they are so open about the use of aircraft as a means of transport.
It was revealed in the summer that many celebrities who had appeared during the rallies had previously flown on private jets and had taken first-class flights.
Dame Emma Thompson had flown famous 5,400 miles from Los Angeles to London to speak at an extinction event in the spring.
Although members understand that it is impractical for people to travel everywhere, many still feel uncomfortable with the carbon footprint that aircraft leave.
Speaking to The Telegraph Victoria Valentine, who founded an XR branch in Lincolnshire, said she was in favor of “very strict rationing”, with “virtually no permission to flee unless it is to visit a dying family member or to visit a dying family member. Another reason crucial “.
Some also said that private jets should all be banned together and a spokesperson for Extinction said the group was always hospitable when it came to different threads on the subject of air travel.
