We joined hundreds of people from different groups including Extinction Rebellion, Kill The Bill and Black Lives Matter on the streets for civil disobedience to demand a FREE PRESS. We marched with giant heads of press moguls, performed a Toxic System Rave, dumped horse manure outside of the Daily Mail offices and held a demo outside of The News Building.
Why? The UK Press is owned and controlled by a handful of billionaires disguising themselves as a 'free press’. They continue to profit from obscuring the truth on the climate crisis; scapegoating minorities and lying to sell papers, get clicks and appease shareholders. They are continuously putting profit over people and the planet.
XRFA are demanding that the UK Press must STOP PUSHING UNSUSTAINABLE FASHION CONSUMPTION and instead #TELLTHETRUTH about fashion's exploitation of people and the planet. They must ACT NOW and use their huge influence to PUSH FOR THE RADICAL TRANSFORMATION we need if we are to survive the climate and ecological crisis. Find out more about why XR and XRFA were targeting the British press.
THE MEDIA SHOULD ACT NOW TO TRANSFORM THE FASHION SYSTEM, RATHER THAN SUSTAINING IT. THERE IS NO FASHION ON A DEAD PLANET.
