Environmental activists are not staying quiet. On Tuesday a string of new protests against governments, oil companies, and the air travel industry took place around the continent.
At least these activists in Rome only took to action on themselves, so unlike the UK activists who went to the Chelsea Flower show and desecrated a flower garden exhibit, so stopping other entants to the show the grandeur of the exhibit. If they had just showered themselves in the yellow powder the exhibit would still be there without damage for others to enjoy and they would have made their point just as their colleagues in Rome did.
The UK activitists are not only destroying areas for others, but in reality any support for their cause. They are being just as selfish and damaging as the organisations they are complaining about, really being self-defeatist.
