Ad Hijacking in Paris

Paris, 2021-10-09: This Saturday, bus stops in Paris who continuously pester passer-bys with high consumption, cheap trips, cars and fossil fuel ads were hijacked by activists from Résistance à l’Agression Publicitaire (RAP) and Extinction Rebellion Paris / Île-de-France!

As part of the days of action across Europe to #BanFossilAds, these groups took over bus stops ads of mayor polluters with a more honest statement featuring a large SUV and stating: “Ignorez les Enfants – Brulez la planete” or Ignore the kids – Burn the Planet.

These weeks we are seeing a rapid transformation in the narrative around fossil fuel ads and sponsorships. Spurned on by the successes of visionary activists groups responsible for city wide fossil ad-bans and museums pulling out of sponsorship deals from mayor polluters – the movement is growing and the acceptance for the pollution of our public spaces is in a nosedive.
