Extinction Rebellion’s bizarre Handmaid’s Tale protest
HUNDREDS of shoes have been arranged in circles in Brisbane's CBD in a symbolic protest for climate action.
The protest, which began at around 11.30am Saturday, was held at King George Square, out the front of City Hall.
A crowd of around 50 people was in attendance.
A group of protesters were spotted moving in unison, dressed as characters from hit book series and television show The Handmaid's Tale.
One speaker said it was her "duty as a mother" to protest.
"We can work now to prevent degrees of warming that will save lives," the speaker said.
There has so far been no disruption to CBD traffic.
