Topless Protesters Glue Themselves to Desk at NBC – “Tell The Naked Truth About Climate”

Extinction Rebellion women staged ‘Naked Truth’ action at 30 Rockefeller Plaza to demand NBC Universal “report on the urgency of the climate and ecological crisis”



August 6 2021 Manhattan, New York – Group of Climate activists from Extinction Rebellion gathered in Midtown Manhattan. Activists went topless with signs reading “Tell The Naked Truth About Climate Crisis” and on the bodies “Pollution”, “Violence”, “Floods”. They marched to ROC and glued themselves to a desk inside to protest NBC and demand that they “NBC tell the truth it’s a climate emergency”.



People were told to leave the building, including press and all entrances to ROC where closed.
After they were unglued (the view was blocked by police), the protesters where quickly pulled out of the side exit and taken away in a Prisoner van.



Press release from Extinction Rebellion NYC states:

Extinction Rebellion is calling on NBC Universal, one of the largest US news networks, to tell the truth about the climate crisis and communicate to its audiences the real risk of civilization collapse, as world governments and corporations continue to fail at reducing the effects of climate change in the scale and timeframe required to avoid catastrophic outcomes.



This action was inspired by Marianne, the symbol of the post-revolution French Republic. In the famous painting “Liberty Leading the People” by Eugène Delacroix, Marianne is depicted bearing her chest as she looked after the wounded revolutionaries and inspired them to continue to fight for liberty, fraternity and equality. The women who took part in the action hope their message will inspire other women—grandmothers, mothers, daughters and granddaughters—to take bold action on the climate.

Extinction Rebellion calls for NBC and the rest of the corporate media to declare a climate emergency and report accordingly:
– Climate headlines daily
– Climate everywhere: every beat, every story
– Suggest real solutions
– Use climate emergency language
– Enact climate standards for political endorsements
– Remove financial conflicts of interest
