Animal Rebellion protesters throw white paint at Big Ben in London

Animal Rebellion protesters throw white paint at Big Ben in London

Animal Rebellion activists, who advocate for the salvation of animals and the climate, poured white paint over one of the main symbols of Great Britain, Big Ben in London, in protest. Thus, they wanted to draw attention to the problem of the harm that the dairy industry causes to the planet.

Nine traffic participants on the morning of September 7 blocked traffic on one of the streets and sprayed white paint on part of the tower. She symbolized milk. Thus, the protesters decided to draw the attention of the new British Prime Minister Liz Truss to the problem of animal products and promote the consumption of plant foods.

“New Prime Minister Liz Truss must immediately restore broken relationships with the farming and fishing communities and support a sustainable plant-based food system while dealing with the energy price crisis, rising costs and insecurity facing British farms,” protesters said.


In early September, Animal Rebellion activists vowed in protest to leave some British shoppers without milk, blocking their access to grocery store departments. Thus, they demanded that the authorities support the transition to a plant-based diet and release land used as pastures.
