This is called a punch action. Fake blood in downtown Rouen against the football world cup which is due to start this Sunday, November 20, 2022 in Qatar.
With all the controversies that we know, a boycott campaign is delivered today by several associations including Extinction Rebellion. This Saturday morning, a dozen activists spilled fake blood in Rouen, to “to symbolize the 6,500 men who died in Qatar during the construction of air-conditioned football stadiums”.
The association also denounces an ecological aberration: “It will be 21 degrees in the stadiums while it will be 31 degrees outside. Today everyone is aware of the climatic problems and yet we authorize the World Cup in Qatar and the Winter Olympics in Saudi Arabia. This it’s not possible to continue this!”, launches Tempérance, activist of the association Extinction Rebellion.
“We just want to raise awareness among the population to boycott this kind of event and become aware of the climate crisis”Temperance, member of Extinction Rebellion
Seven air-conditioned open-air stadiums have been integrated for this World Cup, which would represent 3.6 million tonnes of CO2 emitted for one month of competition.
