The climate activist group that has disturbed recent trips in the London area announced Wednesday that its members – including those who obviously have been sitting in trees for days – are unpacking and going home.

Extinction Rebellion and its self-described “rebels” made headlines last week after snarling traffic and public transport in the UK’s capital through a series of blockades and demonstrations. The group trying to force the British Parliament to accept its climate action demands now says its members will leave plots at Marble Arch and Parliament Square tomorrow.

“We will leave the physical places, but a space for the truth has been opened in the world,” says Extinction Rebellion in a statement. “We know we have disturbed your lives. We do not do that easily. We just do this because this is an emergency. “

The group’s statement also thanked its supporters for putting their” bodies on the line. “

THE CLIMATE GROUP’S ATTEMPT” “PROTECTING” LONDON HEATHROW AIRPORT FIELDS AFTER ONLY Few Hands of People Appear

Since the demonstrations began last Monday, police have arrested more than 1

,000 of the protesters, but only about 70 are currently regarded as fees, the Associated Press reports.

At the height of the protocol, London’s busy Waterloo Bridge was closed for days and rail travel was temporarily delayed after protesters glued themselves to sides of train cars.

But the protesters’ momentum seemed to hit a big snag on Friday when a hyped-up claimed to “shut down” London’s Heathrow airport turned out to be a flop.

Extinction Rebellion has also encountered criticism of protest tactics. Some have pointed out that despite the fact that they want to save the earth, climate leaders have actually damaged it by smashing more environmentally friendly public transport systems and forcing cars and buses to idle in gridlock traffic – thus illuminating the outlet into the atmosphere – as

Oscar-winning actress Emma Thompson met similar criticism after she flew from Los Angeles to London to participate in the demonstrations last week.

Considering a crowd in Oxford Circus, Thompson said according to the Associated Press that “it makes me so happy to be able to join you and add my voice to the young people who have inspired a brand new one movement. “

Then, in conversation with reporters, she admitted that” unfortunately I sometimes have to fly but I do not fly almost as much as I did because of my carbon footprint and I plant a lot of trees. “
