Extreme climate activists have burned an Australian flag on the steps of the Victorian Parliament and have declared Australia a ‘climate pariah’.
The ‘rebels’ called for more action from the government, private business and Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison ahead of the COP26 summit in Glasgow.
While one of the Extinction Rebellion protesters waved the scorched national flag, another gave an impassioned speech outside the government building.
