Youth with Extinction Rebellion SF Bay Area led a powerful rally, march and direct action, shutting down 7th St. in San Francisco and painting a giant street mural in front of the Federal Building. They demanded immediate action to address climate change.

In Los Angeles on Earth Day, members of Extinction Rebellion LA scaled the iconic globe outside Universal Studios. The climate activists waved green flags that read “climate emergency,” from atop the structure, and told LA County sheriff's deputies they could not come down because they were superglued onto the globe.

Both SF and LA demonstrations were part of a global week of action in 22 countries. Thousands were arrested in protests internationally. Extinction Rebellion activists say that they will not keep quiet while the earth is in such peril and that every day will be Earth Day.
