According to the Guardian, the UK counterterrorism unit has begun distributing warnings to teachers and other government officials.

A week earlier, the Extinction Rebellion movement was included in these lists. Participants of this organization organized protests in various cities of the country.

British civil servants are encouraged to report on the activities of Extinction Rebellion, Greenpeace, PETA, and several other listed organizations as part of the UK counterterrorism program.

Moreover, the document notes that not all of the indicated signs of organizations and their symbols "are of interest in terms of the fight against terrorism." Commenting to Guardian, representatives of Extinction Rebellion, Greenpeace and PETA expressed outrage over the inclusion in this list.
