Video: Phil Kingston, the 83-Year Old Rebel
October 04, 2019 by Zoe Blackler
Yesterday, 83-year old grandfather Phil Kingston was part of the group that used a fire engine to spray fake blood over the Treasury Building. In April he was arrested for climbing on top of a Docklands Light Railway train: he’ll be on trial in Crown Court next year.
This beautiful film profiles Phil from his early involvement in activism to his first arrest with Extinction Rebellion and his growing sense of urgency as time is running out, he says, for both him and the planet.
