Meet Farhana Yamin, an attorney and one of the architects of the Paris climate deal. She’s not very happy with the pace at which countries are fighting climate change, so, in protest, she glued herself to a street in London. That’s right, she GLUED herself to the pavement!
Have a watch:
This is the moment an environmental lawyer glues herself to the street outside the Shell building in London.

We sincerely hope that every single climate activist in America glues themselves to a street, too, and then films it:

And it better be organic glue. We don’t want her ruining the environment:
I hope that glue is organic

And LOL. “Sorry, lady, we don’t have glue remover”:
Might be academically bright as a lawyer but clearly not the sharpest knife in the drawer when it comes to common sense! What if the police had just left her stuck there and walked off?! 😂

Exit question: Did she remember to go to the bathroom before she glued herself to the street? That’s really Protesting 101:
Why is my overriding thought whether she went to the loo before she did that?
