Climate Crime Scene
April 17, 2021
Extinction Rebellion groups in Worcestershire performed a “climate crime scene” as street theatre in the centre of Worcester on Saturday 17th April, to highlight that Worcestershire County Council is putting future generations at risk due to their lack of action on the Climate and Ecological Emergency.
The “crime scene” featured a faceless councillor stamping bits of paper at their desk, ignoring the warning signs of what is to come. People beg for help but when their pleas go unanswered, they fall to the ground and die. Forensic investigators in hazmat suits move in to examine the bodies. They issue death certificates which list extreme heat, food shortage and air pollution as causes of death.
Here is our YouTube video of the action: https://youtu.be/tuTLTcsjmo4.
