Extinction Rebellion pledges climate change action in NZ

From Morning Report, 7:28 am on 24 January 2019

More than 1500 people have signed up to a new envrionmental protest group pledging to take extreme action over climate change. A New Zealand chapter of the UK group Extinction Rebellion was set up two months ago. In Britain the activists caused widespread disruption by blocking roads and bridges, gluing themselves to buildings and deliberately getting arrested by the hundreds. And here, they're also pledging to do what it takes to spark radical government action. Katie Todd reports.
