A video clip purportedly taken from an online Zoom meeting between Mother Nature environmental group co-founder Alejandro Gonzalez-Davidson and a number of environmental activists has been posted on social media as supposed evidence that the activists were guilty of insulting the nation’s king. The arrest of four environmental activists of plotting and insulting the king has been criticised by a number of foreign embassies and civil society groups.
