A climate change protester who chained himself to a car was caught on camera crying because his two kids are worried about their future.
Protests took place in the United Kingdom and all around the world on Monday. The protest was organized by Extinction Rebellion, who want the United Kingdom’s Parliament to take action on climate change.
One man, along with a few other protesters, was chained to a car and said he was taking action because his kids, four years and ten months, are “very frightened of their future.” After he took out a picture of them, the man started to cry.
"I'm just a father of two children that's very frightened of their future."

The BBC reports over 270 activists have been arrested so far. Many of them barricaded themselves in cars in the middle of roads and blocked bridges. One group of protesters glued themselves to scaffolding in the middle of a square.
