UK extreme-action climate change group grows in NZ

From Morning Report, 8:10 am on 24 January 2019

More than 1500 people have signed up to a new environmental protest group pledging to take extreme action over climate change. In Britain the group Extinction Rebellion has caused widespread disruption by blocking roads and bridges, gluing themselves to buildings and deliberately getting arrested by the hundreds. A New Zealand chapter of the group was set up two months ago.  Cordelia Lockett is a member of Extinction Rebellion in New Zealand. She talks to Susie Ferguson.
