Fake blood runs down the stairs of the Trocadero in Paris as environmental activists from the Extinction Rebellion activist group seek to alert public opinion to the threats posed by human development to the world’s biodiversity.
Dozens of people lie under the skeleton of a blue whale in London to raise awareness of what some scientists are calling an upcoming ‘sixth mass extinction’. The Extinction Rebellion movement has been protesting and blocking sites around London for a week, demanding the government to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to zero by 2025 and halt biodiversity loss. In the week since the movement began, over 1000 people have been arrested and 53 charged.
Climate protesters from the ‘Extinction Rebellion’ movement disrupt service on London’s Docklands Light Railway (DLR), with two clambering on the roof of a train at Canary Wharf station and one attaching himself to a carriage with superglue. Some 300 protesters have been arrested so far in three days of demonstrations.
UK police arrested three protesters from the environmentalist group ‘Extinction Rebellion’ after they glued themselves to a Docklands Light Railway (DLR) train at London’s Canary Wharf station, on Wednesday.
Police deployed a specialist unit with climbing equipment and superglue removal compound to free the activists ahead of their arrest. A man was removed from the windows, and two other activists were detached from the roof of the train.
