In a political protest, the group hung their own wreath of poppies on the memorial and hung a banner which said “Honour Their Sacrifice, Climate Change Means War.”
The wreath the group hung read ‘climate change means war’ and ‘act now’. The police removed the wreath 30 minutes later.
On the group’s website, they wrote that this action was done in part to pay ‘respects at the Cenotaph with banner warning climate change means war’.
The banner at the end of the video reads “Honour Their Sacrifice, Climate Change Means War.”
Extinction Rebellion’s global website says that the group is “a decentralised, international and politically non-partisan movement using non-violent direct action and civil disobedience to persuade governments to act justly on the Climate and Ecological Emergency.”
