Extinction Rebellion eco-idiots storm Paris Motor Show & glue themselves to supercars including £180,000 Ferrari | The Sun

A DOZEN eco-idiots stormed the Paris Motor Show last night and glued themselves to supercars – including a £180,000 Ferrari.

The Extinction Rebellion fanatics held up a banner and chanted as some of the eco-warriors sat on the floor and glued their hands to the bonnets of the cars.

A photo showed the activists clutching the banner which said "global of self-destruction" as stunned visitors watched on and walked past.

Four of the activists glued their hands to the front of the supercars – including a Ferrari Testarossa – and sprayed them with black paint.

Extinction Rebellion said 11 people were arrested after the minutes-long climate stunt in the French capital.

The group said: "The activists denounce a polluting industry which seeks to wash away its image with the help of green vehicles but continue to promote the individual car as the transport of the future."

They called for an end to advertising individual ownership of private vehicles and improvements in public transport.

Activists said promoting personal vehicles as transport of the future was "absurd" due to the current prices of electricity and fuel.

Extinction Rebellion is one of a new wave of campaigners using direct action and civil disobedience to draw attention to their cause.

Activists have also been travelling around Paris at night to switch off store signs and advertising screens at a time when the government has called on people to cut back on electricity use.

It comes just days after another group of eco-zealots glued themselves to the floor of a VW dealership – and moaned they couldn't use the toilet or get food after staff went home.

Unimpressed employees at the showroom in Germany locked the doors, switched off the lights and dialled down the heating at the end of the working day.

But the group of nine activists from the "Scientist Rebel" group complained they were left in the dark during the demonstration.

They had stormed the showroom in Wolfsburg in protest of Volkswagen, the second-largest car producer in the world.

The eco-idiots then glued their hands to the ground on the Porsche pavilion floor in the company's Autostadt building on Wednesday.

But they were left disgruntled when the staff refused to offer them a container to relieve themselves in while letting the temperature drop.

The activists staged the bold sit-in in the hopes of encouraging the government and big firms to decarbonise the German transport sector.

And eco warriors from Just Stop Oil also targeted an Aston Martin showroom in London – spraying it with orange paint last Sunday.

The same group was behind the action at London's National Gallery last week when two campaigners threw tomato soup over Vincent van Gogh's "Sunflowers" painting.

The activists – named as Anna Holland, 20, and 21-year-old Phoebe Plummer – also glued themselves to the wall.
