More than 200 celebrities and scientists are calling for the world NOT to ‘return to normal’ after Covid-19 lockdowns and to stop ‘the pursuit of consumerism’
A HOST of celebrities from the showbiz world including Madonna, Robert de Niro and a clutch of Scientific Nobel Prize winners have called for radical change in the world rather than ‘a return to normal’ after the coronavirus lockdowns.
Hollywood stars including Cate Blanchett, Jane Fonda, Marion Cotillard, and Monica Bellucci also added their names to the list. The signatories are pleading for an end to unbridled consumerism and a ‘radical transformation’ of economies to help save the planet.
The movement has been penned and led by actress Juliette Binoche and astrophysicist Aurélien Barrau. The letter comes as several global economies begin easing lockdown measures, which some health experts have warned could spark a ‘second wave’ of the virus.
