Uorty climate activists from the Extinction Rebellion (XR) movement burst into the McDonald’s located in the Brussels pedestrian area on Sunday. They shouted slogans and ate a vegan meal there.
Outside McDonald’s, in front of the Stock Exchange, other activists performed a skit depicting the crime of ecocide, a serious attack on the environment.
No activist was arrested by the police, aware of the action.
This is the third day in a row that the movement is carrying out actions in Belgium to pin down industrial farming and its consequences on the environment. Extinction Rebellion highlights the need to reduce meat consumption in order to limit greenhouse gas emissions and the consequences of climate change.
