Yes - but most of them are aware of how much harder it is for, say, a young black man to get arrested, and figure from their position of privilege they should take the cost. As for the long term strategy - let’s see!

Ha! I’m just surprised how basic a lot of the commentary is on all this. So I’m shamelessly plugging...

(In other words, people saying all the arrests will undermine the movement have it backwards. As many arrests as possible is central to the evolution of the movement - this is the start, not the end, of )

I, for one, will not listen to a single word a climate activist says unless they’ve lived as a hunter gatherer from birth & cycles to demonstrations on a solar powered bicycle made of sustainably sourced wood wearing nothing but recycled hemp.

Climate activists are always stuck in an unfair ‘hypocrite-or-fanatic’ bind. Taking a train to a demonstration doesn’t undercut their argument! (From my book ‘Radicals’).

Ive thought about it. In fact I wrote a chapter in my last book about precisely that problem.

Jamie's book was ahead of the curve on the rise of radical environmental activism and its disruptive potential. A must-read for anyone seeking to understand the movement.

(Most people don’t realise how important (3) is here - and why arrests are part of the plan, and how much bigger this could get. It doesn’t take that many people to shut a city down).

goals for the week: ✅Force the public debate onto climate change ✅Provoke an emotional conflict ✅Recruit thousands more people who’ll be willing to engage in direct action & be arrested in future You might not like it: but it’s been a monumental success

The next task for is to break through the hemp ceiling & go beyond the ‘professional activist’ subculture which acts as a break on their growth. My 2018 piece for on the ‘trouble with activists’.

"There're loads of reasons why I want to adopt, why it's the right decision for me, huge one - is I think the overwhelming sense of smugness." is one of the speakers on my show The Idea this week (getting a repeat run!)

My NEW piece! Whoever you are, to stay a bit safer online you need to think a bit like a hacker. And one idea - above all others - is KEY: OPSEC.
