In Britain, activists with Extinction Rebellion blockaded an entrance to an ExxonMobil facility in Hampshire to protest against the expansion of an oil refinery. Activists were dressed as Grim Reapers, as well as an Exxon executive who pumped fake blood from an oil barrel.
Extinction Rebellion activist: “I don’t know what more to do to bring attention to this catastrophe that we’re all heading for, not in this country, but all over the world. We’re seeing it now. We’re seeing the horrific weather conditions — heat, drought, wildfires — everywhere. That’s only going to get worse if we don’t immediately get a grip on bringing down our emissions.”
