Extinction Rebellion fashion protestDownload
© Licensed to London News Pictures. 01/06/2019. Bristol, UK. Extinction Rebellion's "Redwatch" protest inside Primark at Bristol's Broadmead shopping centre. Campaigners from Extinction Rebellion are carrying out a five-hour protest which will include everything from a ‘pop-up’ catwalk to blocking the city centre traffic. The protest targets Bristol’s fashion and clothes stores with people urged to not buy any new items of clothing for the next year. There will also be a ‘pop-up catwalk’, where designers will be showing off their work to demonstrate the needed shift away from fast fashion towards a fairer, safer, cleaner, more transparent fashion industry. People are encouraged to repair, re-use, alter, upcycle and recycle clothes in a year-long boycott aiming to economically disrupt the fashion and textile industry demanding that it drastically changes the way it currently exploits people and planet for profit. The protest is part of a series of disruptive activities planned by Extinction Rebellion to highlight the fashion industry’s contribution to climate change, biodiversity loss and environmental pollution.
