Climate Activist Attacked by Crane Operator

 
Two protestors threw powder yellow paint into the air and held up a banner, to support saving local wetlands. It ended in violence when a camera operator,  intentions unknown, knocked the protestor to the ground violently.
 
Charlie Forsberg, communications director at TV4, is reported to have said: “A number of people made it onto the stage. It was handled by on-site personnel  and the police were quickly called to the recording, which expelled them from the venue.”
 
No comment on the actions, deliberate or coincidental, of the camera operator.A protestor at Sweden’s Let’s Dance

“What are our responsibilities at this time? Because of the fossil fuel industry, we are facing horrors of a magnitude never before experienced in our existence. Our government continues to lead us to the edge of no return. We must stand up and defend ourselves. No one else is going to do it. It must be us, if we want to live.
Our methods must be disruptive, and they must be nonviolent. Our actions are evidence-based, credible, and we have a plan. The only thing missing at this point in time is YOU!”
