Sixth Mass Extinction

At London's Natural History Museum, demonstrators from the 'climate emergency' protest group Extinction Rebellion stage a die-in.

It involved over one-hundred protesters lying on the floor of the museum to play dead, gaining attention from the public to raise awareness of what could be a "sixth mass extinction" of animal life, due to climate change.
