Eco-crazy? Environ-mental activists bring fire engine to spray British finance ministry with 1800 litres of fake blood

The force of the spray made the hose slip out of the hands of the clueless eco-warrior and instead of painting the building, it started going ROFL, yes, it literally started rolling on the floor.

In another bizarre incident, an environmental activist group ‘Extinction Rebellion’ activists on Thursday brought an old fire engine filled with 1800 litres of ‘fake blood’ with an intention to spray the 100-year-old building of British Finance ministry. The fire engine had a giant banner reading ‘Stop Funding Climate Death’.

They wanted to convey that the UK treasury has ‘blood on its hands’ for, as Greta Thunberg says, ‘not doing enough’.

However, the ‘Extinction Rebellion’ activists were perhaps unprepared for the challenges a giant hose would possess for untrained hands. As soon as they tried to spray the building, the force of the spray made the hose slip out of the hands of the clueless eco-warrior and instead of painting the building, it started going ROFL, yes, it literally started rolling on the floor.

As seen in the video above, one eco-warrior did try again to tame the hose but it seemed to have a mind of its own and the climate-change denier hose refused to pay attention to the activist.

The sight of the menacing building in central London being drenched in blood might have made an impressive sight and would probably have filled cover pages and social media timelines all over the world for the next few days, but sadly, the violent hose manufactured by evil corporates had other plans.

The result was  a central London street filled with hundreds of litres of ‘fake blood’. The Metropolitan Police eventually seized the engine and had it removed from the scene. They have arrested 8 Extinction Rebellion activists, five men and three women. One of the arrested activists is an 83-year-old man named Phil Kingston, who said, “I fight with all my being for my four grandchildren in this situation of existential danger. Kingston has been arrested 6 times for his environmental activism.

The group was live-streaming the demonstration on Facebook. One of their demands was for the UKEF(UK Export Finance) work towards zero emissions globally by 2050.

The group is planning an ‘International Rebellion’ in four days. It is a two-week-long climate action protests that Extinction Rebellion says it has coordinated with allied movements across 60 global cities to “rebel against the world’s governments for their criminal inaction on the Climate and Ecological Crisis.”

The ‘Extinction Rebellion’ has been known for similar unique protest stunts. Last month, they had members covered in fancy clothes and masks who had held a ‘funeral’ at the London Fashion Week. They had held an elaborate funeral march with coffins and fancy costumes. Ironically, they were demanding for the fashion industry to ‘change everything it does’ because the clothing industry is a major factor in the climate crisis.

Environmental activists have long been coming up with creative ideas to make their point. While it is unclear as to whether they work to make their protests ‘zero-emission’ or think about the waste they are going to generate, but they sure hog a lot of limelight.
