Three members of the collective “Futuro Vegetal” in Spain took the Plenary Hall of Congress for a few minutes.
The activists hung a flag alluding to their movement, glued their hands to the lectern and before giving a speech to the spectators, who were recording with their phones, they were quickly evicted by security personnel.

The fact was reproached by the security personnel and several spectators who were in the place.

“Out is out” and “go to Cuba and do the same” were some of the phrases that visitors said to the protesters, by way of criticism.
The security of the enclosure promptly removed the three individuals, took their details, and expelled them from the premises
“We say enough, this is a climate emergency,” said the environmental group in a statement with the image of the event, shared through their social networks.
