Extinction Rebellion, Den Haag
On January 28th, The Hague bore witness to a bold and determined act of civil disobedience as activists from Extinction Rebellion (XR) staged a highway blockade to draw attention to the climate crisis and the urgent need for immediate action. This daring protest, which disrupted the normal flow of traffic, sent a powerful message to the world: the time for complacency is over, and the fight for our planet’s future is underway.
The Extinction Rebellion highway blockade in The Hague was a meticulously planned and peaceful demonstration of resistance. Activists strategically positioned themselves on a major roadway, causing traffic to come to a standstill. With banners unfurled and voices raised, they demanded that governments and institutions prioritize the preservation of the environment and take radical steps to address the climate emergency.
