CLIMATE demonstrators blocked roads outside London Fashion Week today to protest against the “unsustainable” industry.
More than 100 campaigners joined the Extinction Rebellion group’s disruption march as they urged fashion brands to tackle a global “ecological emergency.”
Demonstrations began when a small crowd rallied outside Victoria Beckham’s morning event at the Tate Britain and blocked fashion week cars travelling to the show.
A larger group then moved to the event’s main venue at The Strand, in central London, where they blocked several roads carrying a banner with the message “rebel for life.”
Nuala Gathercole Lam, from Extinction Rebellion, said: “We ask the fashion industry, who do you want to listen to, the youth and the future, or the words of our current Prime Minister, whose government is criminally neglecting the UK’s agreed responsibilities under the Paris agreement in the face of the ecological emergency?
“Now it is time for the fashion industry to hear the call of the youth.”
