Climate activists cause several miles of traffic chaos by blocking route to Burning Man

Burning Man traffic was introduced to a current standstill by a bunch of anti-capitalist local weather change activists who blocked the primary highway to the pageant.

On Sunday (28 August), almost half a dozen protestors from Seven Circles stood themselves within the center of the highway used to enter the desert venue. Some even chained themselves to a trailer parked on the highway as nicely.

Surrounded by indicators and banners that learn “Burners of the World, Unite!”, “Abolish Capitalism” and “Basic Strike for Climate”, the group mentioned their protests had been designed to draw consideration to “capitalism’s incapability to deal with local weather’s ecological breakdown”.

They added that their protests had been aimed on the “popularisation of Burning Man amongst prosperous individuals who don’t stay the said values of Burning Man, ensuing within the commodification of the occasion.”

Seven Circles argued that the annual Black Rock Desert occasion’s aim of turning into carbon-negative by 2030 is “inadequate to deal with the urgent disaster”.

Shortly after, video footage circulating social media reveals Nevada rangers driving by way of the activist’s barricade earlier than an officer will get out wielding a gun and making arrests.
