LONDON (Reuters) – Thirty bare-chested women locked themselves on the railing outside the Houses of Britain’s parliament on Thursday in protest against the extinction demanding action against climate change.
The women read a large banner saying, “Can’t bare the truth?” And there were words painted on his chest representing the anticipated consequences of global warming such as war, drought, starvation, wildfires, violence and famine.
Some women used metal D-locks which usually lock the bicycle to tie themselves to the neck for the railing of parliamentary property.
The women called on the government to inform the public about the risks of increasing the average global temperature to 4 degrees centigrade, which the deletion insurgency calls for what will happen by 2100 until countries take action now.
Activist groups resumed protests in the UK last week due to the coronovirus epidemic. On Saturday, extinction rebellion protesters blocked two printworks to disrupt the distribution of newspapers, accusing them of failing to report accurately on climate issues.
On Tuesday, Home Secretary (Interior Minister) Preeti Patel described the group as eco-criminals gunning down criminals, whose “guerrilla tactics” should stop.
“I refuse point-blank to allow that kind of chaos on our streets,” she said of the printwork protest.
