Eco-activists have painted fountains green in Vienna.

 

Climate activists Extinction Rebellion painted six fountains green in Vienna on Wednesday night to protest the “greenwashing” of the gas industry.

“Last night we painted six fountains in Vienna green in protest against the gas industry’s greenwashing,” Extinction Rebellion Austria tweeted.


According to activists, the fossil industry is burning “the common future for its own profit.”


“Greenwashing” or “green laundering” refers to the actions of manufacturers, when they use unscrupulous “green” advertising to mislead consumers about the environmental friendliness of a product sold.
