‘It is now the age of consequences,’ said a protest organizer with Extinction Rebellion Vancouver Island.
Environmental activist David Suzuki “has a stern warning for politicians and global leaders if they fail to act on climate change,”CHEK News reports.
Speaking at an Extinction Rebellion protest in Victoria, B.C., Suzuki stated that “there are going to be pipelines blown up, if our leaders don’t pay attention to what’s going on.”
Suzuki continued: “My whole message here? It is that so long as we cling to the models or systems that we’ve built our laws, our politics, and our economics as being more important than everything else? We’re hooped,” he said.
“People in Extinction Rebellion are saying we’re headed in a direction of extinction and we’re rebelling against it. That’s why I’m here.”
