Shameless Extinction Rebellion activists cover Buckingham Palace fountain in BLOOD in protest against Royals
EXTINCTION Rebellion activists have covered a Buckingham Palace fountain in blood in a protest against the royal firm.
Shameless eco-warriors clutching signs reading 'royal blood bath' defaced the Queen Victoria Memorial fountain on the fourth day of their fortnight-long "Impossible Rebellion".
Extinction Rebellion – also known as XR – claimed the Queen and her family were stopping "justice and compassion" for condoning farming and hunting on their land.
Spokesman Harley McDonald-Eckersall told MailOnline: "The Crown Estate is the biggest landowner in the UK and they choose to use this land for animal agriculture and hunting, which not only decimate our environment but cause the deaths of millions of lives every year.
"It's time for a new system based on justice and compassion and the royal family should be leading the way."
Cops were seen wading into the ankle-deep water to arrest several demonstrators today.
Met Police said in a statement: "A number of activists have vandalised the Victoria Memorial water feature outside Buckingham Palace. We are on scene and arrests have been made.
"The suspects are being taken to custody."

Yesterday, in scenes similar to XR's controversial 2019 protests, demonstrators blocked off Oxford Circus – with some seen being hauled away by officers and carried into nearby vans as other group members cheered.
XR grounded London to a halt two years ago as members took hold of the city's already-strained transport system, leaving commuters stuck.
Now, the protest group is demanding the government stop investing in fossil fuels as part of their "beautiful, creative rebellion".
