Several Extinction Rebellion activists chained themselves to the gates of the French Ministry of Economy of Finance while others covered them with fake blood in Paris on Tuesday morning.
The activists could be seen covered in fake blood while chained to the Ministry of Economy as they called for «the creation of citizens' assemblies, at the level of the European Union, to pave the way for societies more democratic and more respectful of human beings.»
«The urgency is here. The scientists warn us: there would remain no more than 6 months to take measures,» an activist said.
«We are vulnerable, there are people dying, suffering all over the world. We wanted to express it and put it in contrast to the start-up society,» said another activist covered in fake blood.
Police officers were present at the event, where no clashes were reported.
