Extinction Rebellion Protesters in Spain Demand Action to Protect Biodiversity

HeadlineNov 05, 2020

In Madrid, Spain, activists with the climate action group Extinction Rebellion superglued themselves to the ground outside the entrance of the Agriculture Ministry on Wednesday, demanding Spain’s government do more to protect biodiversity. The activists say climate change and the loss of animal habitat threaten to spark new pandemics.

Extinction Rebellion activist: “We demand that measures to really solve this climate crisis are taken, because, for example, the coronavirus is basically a problem that derives from climate change. It derives from the fact that, little by little, we are losing biodiversity. And one of the direct consequences is that we’re losing the natural barrier that previously protected us.”
