Environmental activists disrupt Bafta red carpet in London

The Guardian says Young environmental activists have disrupted the red carpet at the Baftas to call for more attention to the climate crisis and for celebrities to speak out about it.

Just before 4pm on Sunday, a group of about two dozen activists prepared to storm the entrance to the red carpet VIP area of the Royal Albert Hall in London, but were prevented from getting inside by police and security.

Four activists were able to gain access to the red carpet by getting tickets after entering a lottery. They took off their shirts to reveal T-shirts reading “Just Stop Oil”, and chanted: “Just look up, just stop oil,” in a reference to the recent film, Don’t Look Up. The satire is in the running for four awards and the attempt by scientists in the film to warn of impending armageddon due to a comet has been compared to experts’ ignored warnings over the climate crisis.
