Members of the environmental activist group Extinction Rebellion rallied on the sidelines of the COP25 climate conference in Madrid on Monday. The protesters blocked the traffic outside the Feria de Madrid venue hosting the summit and called on politicians for immediate action amid the climate emergency declared by the activists. Extinction rebellion spokesperson Blanca Lagunas lamented the lack of action from the politicians: «The distrust is because they have been doing this COP for 25 years. 25 years knowing the reality that climate change is affecting us and we are accelerating and going towards our own extinction and not getting real solutions.» COP25 opened its doors on Monday morning in Madrid and will be taking place until December 14.
