Naked Protesters Just Glued Their Bare Butts To Security Glass In Parliament To Protest Climate Change

Tensions ran high in the House of Commons as Parliament rejected Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit plan for the third time.

With Britain set to leave the European Nation by April 12, Members of Parliament are still struggling to come up with a resolution.

But a distraction arrived in the form of semi-nude protestors who descended upon the scene, attempting to shed some light on an important issue with their moon glow.

Vice News said 12 protestors showed up sans clothing amid the Brexit drama on Monday to demonstrate about another matter: climate change.

Not only did the environmental warriors ditch almost all of their clothing, but the naked dozen also secured their positions by gluing their hands to the security glass wall in the public gallery.

The campaigners used their bodies in place of placards to scrawl messages, like “climate justice act now,” “eco-collapse,” “stop wasting time” and “XR.”

One woman addressed the elephant in the room by literally painting her bare breasts with grey paint and added ears and a trunk.

Security removed the protestors 30 minutes after their arrival after they cleared the public gallery of other visitors.

Some of the security personnel had to resort to using soap and water to dislodge protestors’ hands from the glass.

Tory MP James Heappey commented on the view from the floor, tweeting “Parliament just got a little bit more nuts!”

All 12 members were arrested for “outraging public decency,” but the demonstration at least sparked a conversation about a topic that needs to be addressed.

Some cooperated with authorities, according to the Mirror, and others, not so much.

Commons security and police had to forcibly carry out one female protestor by all four of her limbs each held by individual guards.

The demonstration was in response to climate change being “flagrantly and recklessly ignored by our government and media,” according to the group’s statement.

One of the activists, 35-year-old Mark Øvland, said:

“By undressing in parliament, we are putting ourselves in an incredibly vulnerable position, highlighting the vulnerability that all of us share in the face of environmental and societal breakdown.”

Another protestor, a 24-year-old wildlife biologist, Iggy Fox added:

“I’m tired of the time and resources our government wastes rearranging the deckchairs on the Brexitanic.”

“I want a future, and right now they are burning it like there’s no tomorrow.”

For the remainder of the day, lawmakers resumed with their Brexit debate after the incident. And that’s the bottom line.
