The Extinction Rebellion (XR) environmental group has called for a protest in Keynsham (Bristol) on Saturday, January 11, in opposition of expansion plans at Bristol Airport (BRS). Participants began gathering as of 10:00 (local time) at Keynsham Bandstand Memorial Park and are expected to march to an undisclosed location. Participants are as of now not expected to go to BRS.
A heightened security presence and transport disruptions, including traffic and flight delays, are expected during all protest action.
Individuals in Keynsham and Bristol more generally are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all public demonstrations as a precaution, and anticipate localized disruption.
