EXTINCTION REBELLION protesters today targeted Buckingham Palace as part of their ongoing demonstrations in London.
Extinction Rebellion spokesman Harley McDonald-Eckersall said: “The Crown Estate is the biggest landowner in the UK and they choose to use this land for animal agriculture and hunting, which not only decimate our environment but cause the deaths of millions of lives every year.
“It’s time for a new system based on justice and compassion and the Royal Family should be leading the way.”
The targetting of the Royal Family comes just days after Prince Charles made a rallying cry for action on climate change in a Daily Mail article.
The Met Police said they were at the scene outside the palace and arrests have been made.
