(SOUNDBITE) (English) EXTINCTION REBELLION SPOKESPERSON, SARA ARNOLD, SAYING: "We are asking for deep systemic change.

We are asking not for sustainability but a complete reinvention of this industry in a way that regenerates the environment.

Yes, so we are calling for a cancellation between now and September and for the British Fashion Council to gather their stakeholders and come up with an emergency action plan.

But importantly we are also telling them that they cannot do this alone, they need the government.

They need to call on the government to act." On Friday (February 14), a near-nude protester from the animal rights group PETA had her fake skin torn off outside London Fashion Week venue in a stunt against the leather industry.
