Climate change protesters disrupted a Louis Vuitton show in Paris. Two people were able to walk down the runway with posters denouncing the impact of excessive consumption on the environment. This was reported by Reuters on October 6.
During the show a girl with a poster “Overconsumption = extinction” walked down the catwalk along with the models, which caused a commotion among those present. The protester was carried off the runway by security guards, while the show continued.
The second protester with a similar poster tried to walk down the catwalk together with the models at the end of the show. He was also escorted out by security guards.
It is known that the protesters are members of the Amis de la Terre France movement, an organization dedicated to protecting the environment.
“LVMH (the company, which includes Louis Vuitton. – Ed.) is a world leader in luxury and is responsible for the trends that encourage the textile industry to constantly update collections faster and produce more,” Alma Dufour, a representative of Amis de la Terre France, told Reuters.
Earlier, on August 26, activists from the environmental movement Extinction Rebellion painted red paint on the Queen Victoria memorial in front of Buckingham Palace in central London.
Demonstrators also poured red paint into the fountain that is part of the memorial and the water in it turned purple. In their hands they held placards that read “Hunting is a royal bloodbath.” This was the activists’ way of protesting the British royal family’s disregard for the environment.
