February 3rd, Rotterdam. All over the Netherlands, the public warning sirens are tested at exactly 12.00 noon on the first Monday of every month. For the third time, in Rotterdam during the air alarm, a 'die-in' action was carried out by XR Nederland at several places in the Netherlands to emphasize that a climate crisis is not a drill, but an actual emergency. With this action, XR Rotterdam wanted to draw attention to the ecological crisis in general and the sea level threat in particular. With theatrical means, the group displayed an emergency situation by using life jackets, crisis blankets, etc, followed by a speech. This month the theme of the Die-In action was "sea-level rise", and took place in the center of the city.
