Polish Extinction Rebellion climate activists blocked traffic in downtown Warsaw on Monday calling on the government for better environmental protection.
It was the second action since Saturday by Poland’s chapter of the group that argues world leaders are not doing enough to counter climate change.
With chants and banners saying “We are Rebelling in Order to Live,” the group blocked a major street in the Polish capital, holding up morning traffic. The police checked their documents and carried protesters to the side to clear the way.
Largely powered by coal, Poland has some of Europe’s worst quality air. Also, pollution levels in many of its lakes and rivers are below European Union quality standards.
