Climate Change Protester Chains Himself to a Car and Cries Because His Kids Are 'Very Frightened of Their Future'

A climate change protester who chained himself to a car was caught on camera crying because his two kids are worried about their future. 

Protests took place in the United Kingdom and all around the world on Monday. The protest was organized by Extinction Rebellion, who want the United Kingdom's Parliament to take action on climate change.

One man, along with a few other protesters, was chained to a car and said he was taking action because his kids, four years and ten months, are "very frightened of their future." After he took out a picture of them, the man started to cry.

The BBC reports over 270 activists have been arrested so far. Many of them barricaded themselves in cars in the middle of roads and blocked bridges. One group of protesters glued themselves to scaffolding in the middle of a square.

Protest organizers say they will continue their acts for the next two weeks.

The climate protesters across the pond are taking similar actions to those in the United States. As part of the "Shut Down DC" protest in September, activists took to the streets to block rush hour traffic around the nation's capital to get lawmakers to act on climate change.

"We'll do it as many times as needed to, to bring business as usual to a halt so that we can get real change here in our policies here in D.C.," activist Michael Beer told Townhall. "Our major focus is on the federal government. The residents of D.C. and the D.C. government are not our target."
