Extinction Rebellion Malta, a new pressure group of climate change activists, will be organising a climate protest in front of Parliament at 5:30pm today, which will also include a symbolic “die-in”.
The protest, which is taking place on a day of climate actions across the world, is calling on Malta’s Parliament to declare a climate emergency.
“Everything has been said, the facts are on the table. Today we are silent and strike. Now politicians must act!” Extinction Rebellion Malta said in a statement.
“Members will lie on the ground as a symbolic representation of the consequences of continued inaction.”
The “Die-Ins” have become a key act of symbolic action by the international movement Extinction Rebellion and it is now set to hit Malta tonight as well.
