Spanish activists have wreaked havoc on a superyacht in Ibiza, which is said to be owned by a millionaire Walmart heiress.

This graffiti was committed by environmental activists from the organization Futuro Vegetal, who used aggressive tactics to convey their message.

The activists triumphantly released a video of themselves standing in front of the superyacht Kaos, holding a sign that said, “You Consume, Others Suffer.”

They proceeded to spray crimson and black paint throughout the vessel to show their dedication.

The activists eloquently expressed their worries in the film, noting, “The richest 1% of the world population pollutes more than the poorest 50%.”

They are dooming us to a life of agony, suffering, and devastation.” Their passionate argument stressed the negative impacts of excessive consumerism on our world and its residents’ well-being.

The Ownership and Response

According to reliable shipping industry sources, the superyacht belongs to Nancy Walton Laurie, the millionaire heiress of Walmart.

CNN tried to contact Laurie for comment but has not received a response.

According to Futuro Vegetal, two demonstrators were captured by the Spanish Civil Guard on Sunday morning but are likely to be freed on Monday.

Extending the Movement

This event followed a similar act of disobedience on Friday, when the same gang spray-painted a private plane at the Ibiza airport, causing the runway to be temporarily closed.

Futuro Vegetal noted that this action was part of Extinction Rebellion Ibiza’s “Jets and Yachts, the Party is Over” campaign. The campaign’s goal is to advocate for the ban of private aircraft and luxury emissions.

Extinction Rebellion (XR), a well-known climate organization, has committed to concentrate on the 1% and spotlight the luxury activities that deplete vital resources.

Their goal is to send a clear message that luxurious lifestyles and excessive resource usage are no longer viable options for our world.

Confronting Environmental Issues

XR activists in Spain made a daring statement earlier this month by plugging water holes on several golf courses around the nation.

They were protesting excessive water consumption by golf courses amid one of Spain’s worst droughts on record.

This move demonstrates their will to solve important environmental concerns and demand appropriate care of our common resources.

As public awareness of environmental issues grows, activities like this serve as potent reminders of the urgent need for change.

Activists want to catalyze a movement toward a more sustainable and fair future for everyone by attacking the wealthy and shining a focus on the repercussions of their behavior.
