Activists took part in the second day of protests, government End the cost of living and the climate crisis by shutting off new oil and gas.
A JSO spokesperson said:
“We need to initiate a rapid transformation to a more just society, determined by ordinary people and paid for by those profiting from the destruction of humanity.”
Parts of the city were disrupted, including Oxford Street, Rudgate Hill and Southampton Row, before the group met in Covent Garden and sat down on the road to block the Waterloo Bridge.
The protests come a day after thousands of activists gathered across the country to demonstrate against soaring energy prices and the climate crisis.
Demonstrations took place in cities such as London, Glasgow and Belfast. The average electricity bill also rose by about £600, coinciding with the postal and rail strikes.
“If you’re mad about the cost of living crisis, the energy crisis, the climate crisis, these are all part of one crisis,” said Sunday’s protester named Louise.
A total of 31 people have been arrested in central London, including 29 on suspicion of obstructing a motorway after a protest at Waterloo Bridge, according to the Metropolitan Police.
A police spokesman said: Thank you for your patience. “
