Extinction Rebellion members said the 400 litres of red paint “represented that of today’s children – who will suffer the effects of climate change the worst”.
Roughly 400 demonstrators, including children, staged the protest alongside Christian Climate Action members, while police stood by without making any arrests.
Holly-Anna Petersen, 30, from London and a member of Christian Climate Action, described the scene: “Most of those present wept as children bravely took to a small podium in front of the crowds and used a portable microphone to speak out on all they stood to lose through climate change.
“One child came to tears herself when she reflected on the fact that she has been stripped of the chance to raise a family, because she refuses to bring children into a broken world.”
Rachael Mender, 21, along with fellow Christian Climate Action member James Staff, 19, also took to the podium and said: “It breaks Gods heart to see this happen…he really hates it.”
Protests in other town across the UK were also held by members of Christian Climate Action, which are one of a number of groups taking part in the Extinction Rebellion.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
What is your response?
If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
