Extinction Rebellion activists glue themselves to Brazilian Embassy in London

Extinction Rebellion activists have glued themselves to the Brazilian embassy in London, splattering it in red paint and spraying messages in protest over the rights of indigenous people. The protests by "the Snowflakes" affinity group blockaded the embassy, spray-painting messages and dousing the building in red paint to symbolise indigenous people they say have been killed in Brazil. They were joined by other activists taking part in a separate vigil for murdered environmental campaigners. It is part of international action targeting Brazilian embassies around the world, which is taking place at the same time as indigenous women are marching on Brasilia demanding recognition of their rights.
