Activists from the environmental group Extinction Rebellion blocked two printing plants belonging to the News Corp media group, owned by magnate Rupert Murdoch, on Saturday. Murdoch has headlines like “The Sun”, “The Times”, “The Daily Telegraph” and “The Daily Mail”.
Activists have used bamboo vehicles and structures to denounce that the media “does not cover the climate and environmental emergency”.
Hundreds of activists blocked access to Broxbourne printing works near Liverpool on Friday afternoon. The police arrested 42 people.
Under the slogan “Free the Truth”, Extinction Rebellion has declared that the aim of the campaign is to expose the newspapers that “do not cover the climate and the ecological emergency” and “their constant manipulation of the truth for their own benefit”.
