A 72-year-old woman has denied a public order offence related to last month’s Extinction Rebellion protests in London.
Genevieve Scherer, of Lambeth, is accused of failing to comply with a police condition by refusing to move from Waterloo Bridge to another protest site at Marble Arch.
Ms Scherer pleaded not guilty to a public order offence when she appeared at Camberwell Green Magistrates’ Court.
Her trial will take place on 8 August.
The charge states that Ms Scherer “knowingly failed to comply with a condition imposed by a senior police officer”. She has been accused under section 14 of the Public Order Act 1986.
She was unconditionally bailed ahead of her trial at the same court.
