Guerrilla Benching
Green-Space Loving Activists Drill Down New Seats Around London

Guerrilla benching is a new craze led by eco-activists in London. After park benches were accused of fueling trouble pertaining to loiterers and homeless people, public seating was removed from green spaces around the city.

In protest, a group of neon safety vest-clad activists hit the parks with benches in tow and began plunking them in grassy spots they felt people could enjoy resting at. The self-proclaimed “Guerrilla Benching” group is calm, hasn’t protested or participated in obnoxious rallies, and instead have quietly just furnished parks in the middle of the night, and bolted them by day, to bring them up to their nature-loving standards.

Check out some more neat guerrilla activism in the features below.
