Extinction Rebellion Cyclists 'Swarm' Central London to Protest Insect Death

Extinction Rebellion demonstrators held a “Critical Mass” cycling event around London and a die-in at the Tate Modern on April 27 to protest against the deaths of insects, mainly bees, due to climate change, according to participants.

“With thunderous sounds of swarming bees filling the air from cargo bike sound systems, we will swarm past some key locations (like Parliament Square and Defra) then head towards the Tate Modern,” said the event’s description on Facebook.

“When we arrive at the entrance, we’ll perform a ‘sudden colony collapse’ die-in with all of us lying down just the flags standing upright.” Over the past several months activists have increased the number of mass disruption protest events in an effort to encourage world governments to take action on human-driven climate change.

This footage shows protesters in several areas of London, England, including the Tate Modern museum and the BBC Broadcast Center.
