Highway blockade, A12 Den Haag

Extinction Rebellion has demonstrated 36 times on the A12 in Utrecht to draw attention to the climate crisis and the urgent need for government action. According to Extinction Rebellion, these protests are a response to the lack of adequate policies and concrete measures to address climate change. According to Extinction Rebellion, the A12 in The Hague is a symbolic location because it is a stone’s throw away from the temporary Second Chamber. By repeatedly returning to this location, the activists aim to increase pressure on the authorities and call for drastic changes in policies regarding climate, environment, and fossil fuel subsidies.
