'I would sacrifice myself for the future of our generations to come.'
This caller tells Nick Ferarri she would let one of her relatives die in the back of an ambulance whilst blocking traffic in a climate protest.
This comes as commuters were hit with more disruption in London as eco-activists continued to shut the Queen Elizabeth II bridge and blocked another key route.
The bridge has been closed since it was scaled by two climbers from the Just Stop Oil protest group, whose demands include that the Government "halts all new oil and gas licenses and consents".
This caller made the shocking revelation while speaking to Nick Ferrari at Breakfast on LBC saying despite the government's 2019 climate emergency, we are now "ignoring" this and opening up oil development companies which goes "against" the Paris agreement.
The caller said: "We're brushing the climate emergency under the carpet and the reason we're doing this is because we need to talk about it."
She then added: "I think it's time that we actually did something.
"The government are going completely against climate crisis."
Nick asked: 'I don't wish to be confrontational, but you would allow your mother or father to die in an ambulance because of this protest?"
The caller responded: "My family would sacrifice themselves for the future of our generations to come. I would sacrifice myself for the future of our society."
She then concluded: "Yes, I would sit in a protest for the future of everyone's generations."
