    FOUND THIS: The movement uses a stylized, circled hourglass, known as the extinction symbol, to serve as a warning that time is rapidly running out for many species. Extinction Rebellion placard containing its logotype with the extinction symbol

    A sad part is that the eu for health and hygiene specify that product must be wrapped in plastic. There needs to be research into biodegradable packaging or more reusable packaging that can the get signed off by the eu / other country / trade regions and accepted to replace plastic. That alone would reduce plastic waste by a phenomenal amount.

    Here in London many of them were queuing at Mc Donald's last May. So embarrassing for the rest.🤥

    Hey, spray painting others' property to try and get a message across is WRONG! Fine is you use signs, flags, banners, etc., but knock off the paint on property that's not YOURS.

    This is not activism. It is vandalism.

    Sounds like brainwashing! If you want real change then you need to form serious organization that will deal in serious data, not "Google it." You'll need serious metrics and measurements, and plans for action - such as with respect to reducing plastic garbage. Are these people offering any specific SOLUTIONS or are they just "protesting" by waving flags and drawing symbols? Who even gave people an idea that they should be solving problems through "protest?" Instead of wasting time "protesting," sit down and create professional task groups, formulate plans, educate the public with REAL information, not sound bites, etc. Why is everyone demanding that somebody in government do something? Can't people take some PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY for the world that they live in? You don't need to be a government to develop intelligence and become a source of intellectual influence.
