Environmental campaigners stage ‘festival-type’ protests at G7
World leaders called upon to put the ocean first and respond to the demands of climate change
Thousands of protesters, young and old, took to the sea and the beaches and streets of Cornwall to try to make their voices heard by the G7 leaders.
Arguably, the most picturesque demonstration took place off Gyllyngvase Beach in Falmouth where more than 1,000 surfers, kayakers and swimmers staged a “paddle out” organised by Surfers Against Sewage (SAS) to call for more protection for the world’s seas and oceans.

Around 50 Animal Rebels are occupying the vast majority of seating available both inside and outside the McDonald’s in Falmouth.

They’re still at it! But no amount of scrubbing can wash clean this dirty bank @HSBC still investing billions in #fossilfuels while fobbing us off with #greenwashing #StopFundingClimateChaos https://t.co/hau4erNXRp pic.twitter.com/uDTIcT4xxf
