Extinction Rebellion protests outside G7 media center

As leaders of some of the world's richest nations gather in picturesque Cornwall, so have dozens of campaign groups that want to court publicity for their causes and send a message to the Western political elite.

Behind police cordons and layers of security, leaders from the United States, Japan, Germany, Britain, France, Italy, and Canada have gathered for a three-day summit that they hope will show the West can still act decisively on major global issues.

The summit is taking place in Carbis Bay near St Ives, but the media center is around 40 kilometers away, and the protests have been taking place at both locations.
