A banner displayed on the catwalk, two arrests
(ANSA) – PARIS, OCTOBER 05 – Activists from Extinction Rebellion broke into the Louis Vuitton fashion show at the Louvre to denounce the impact of the fashion industry on climate change, on the last day of Paris fashion week.
“Consumerism = extinction”, read on a poster unrolled by an activist of the international civil disobedience movement who jumped on the catwalk installed in a Louvre gallery in the middle of the parade. The activist was then taken out of security, as an AFP photographer observed.
Thirty activists from Extinction Rebellion, Friends of the Earth and Youth For Climate participated in the action, and two of them were arrested, according to a statement released by the movement. (HANDLE).
