Brussels, January 6 – On Saturday 18th January, Extinction Rebellion invites all citizens and organisations to take part in “Salon of Lies”. On that day, hundreds of participants organised in small autonomous groups will perform a multitude of non-violent disruptive acts both inside and outside of the fair. Participants are invited to choose from a “menu” of different actions ranging from small actions of sensibilisation on the parking lots to more disruptive actions such as holding uninvited speeches, glueing themselves to exhibited cars or pouring fake blood on them. “Salon of Lies” will end with a final collective action that will be announced on the day itself. Participants are aware of the legal consequences of their actions and are ready to risk arrest.
