Declare Emergency Brings the Art Protests Stateside
In an unprecedented moment of bravery for a stateside transgressive climate action, two beautiful activists cover the Little Dancer in an improving mix of black and white - highlighting the dire need to turn our attention to humanity’s greatest threat - climate Change.
The two protesters, Joanna and Tim, sat and peacefully improved the statues casing to the surprise of onlookers. It was nevertheless poorly received by onsite security, as Tim and Joanna saw themselves dragged to the underground security layer and shipped to a local precinct to be booked.
Federal charges have been leveled at the duo and the incitement aims to make an example of these two.
The climate movement known as Declare Emergency takes credit for designing the action. They are part of a global network of activists known as the #A22Network who’ve been improving artwork and drawing unprecedented attention to masterpieces and the climate change all over the world.
The network may also disrupt competitive events or other events which might not be pulling their weight for Mother Earth at this critical time.’
If you choose to help with these tasks, you need only join up through their website, DeclareEmergency.org. Don’t try this alone. It’s more fun with friends. (So we heard).
In related news a petition has begun to circulate to free the two.

“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!”
