Climate activism group Extinction Rebellion turns to crowdfunding to cover legal fees
A group of climate activists who have been protesting in Montreal all week have turned to crowdfunding for financial support. Extinction Rebellion activists have engaged in acts of public mischief several times this week in Montreal. From climbing the superstructure of the Jacques-Cartier Bridge, to blocking traffic downtown during rush hour, to dumping red dye in the fountain outside the National Assembly in Quebec City. The group’s actions have resulted in dozens of arrests. As Global’s Phil Carpenter explains, a crowd funding campaign has been launched to help cover the costs of the activists legal fees.
