Climate Change Protests: Fake Blood, Extinction.



Tourists and workers on Wall Street on Monday met an unpleasant sight: protesters, some lying in fake pools near the New York Stock Exchange, some dancing and chanting, all to pay attention to people killed by climatic diseases and disasters.

“Recessed in the attic” read one sign in the shape of a cardboard tombstone lying next to a protester playing the dead; another read: "Failed to overcome fire".

Protesters, led by the protest group "Rebellion", began five days of civil disobedience planned around the city, country and the rest of the world.

By tearing down several landmarks in the heart of New York's financial district and blocking traffic on Broadway, the group hoped to begin building its relatively small American movement with the kind of street muscle and influence it quickly gained in its homeland, United Kingdom.

"The political situation is so different that people do not even agree that there is a climate crisis," said Jack Baldwin, media news for the group.

Most passers-by seemed anxious and largely support the protest on Monday, though one shouted, "Get a job!"

. The crowd consisted of people of all ages and styles: " a gloomy reaper "in a white skeletal mask and cloak; a gray-haired woman in gauze-charm and pearly necktie; a group calling themselves Red Brigades, whose members wore red suits with white face paint.

Danika Novgorodoff, a mother of two and a Brooklyn-based graphic novelist working on a children's book on climate change, went stroller with her daughter, Ada, 7 weeks old.

"I want to make sure that there is still life to them," she said.
