Bare-chested women lock themselves to UK Parliament in climate protest

Thirty bare-chested women locked themselves to the railings outside Britain’s Houses of Parliament in an Extinction Rebellion protest to demand action against climate change, Reuters reported.

The women carried a large banner reading “Can’t bare the truth?” and had words painted on their chests representing predicted consequences of global warming such as war, drought, starvation, wildfires, violence and famine.

Some of the women used metal D-locks normally used to lock up bicycles to attach themselves by the neck to the parliamentary estate’s railings.

The women called on the government to inform the public about the risks of allowing average global temperatures to rise by 4 degrees centigrade, which Extinction Rebellion says is what will happen by 2100 unless countries take action now.
