The climate change activists brought London to a halt earlier this month after targeting important commuter links which saw a total of 1,832 arrests in the capital. Now, the group plans to target key areas such as Oxford Street and Trafalgar Square over Christmas.
According to the London Evening Standard, the group will meet this week where they plot their moves which will be encrypted via messaging apps such as WhatsApp.
Speaking of the plans, organiser for the group, Clare Farrell said: “We need to prioritise Christmas as a cultural event.
“It’s something we can’t overlook this time.
“You would hope that something beautiful will happen.”

The group’s recent protest, dubbed the ‘Autumn Uprising’, hit areas such as Canning Town station which saw one activist pulled from the roof of a train following an angry backlash from commuters.
Moreover, last week one protestor defied a ban to shut down certain areas and scaled the Elizabeth Tower at the Houses of Parliament.
Ms Farrell added: “What I do think is that, as a movement, we can’t think it will become something that only campaigns twice a year.
“The situation is far too serious and far too urgent. The clock is really ticking.”
