Climate activists support the suicide of fellow activist who lit himself on fire in front of the Supreme Court

Climate activists are rallying behind the actions of 50-year-old Wynn Bruce, who died after burning himself alive in front of the U.S. Supreme Court steps in protest of climate change.

According to Breitbart News, Bruce died of injuries sustained after lighting himself on fire. The Washington, DC, Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) said that the Colorado native carried out the act around 6 p.m. on Friday.

The Hill reported that The MPD, Supreme Court Police, and Capitol Police responded to the scene. After being conveyed to a local hospital via helicopter, Bruce died of his injuries.

Public accounts belonging to the deceased indicated that he was a practicing Buddhist performing an act of self-immolation, but in the hours following his death, support for his actions began to flood social media platforms.

“Climate activist Wynn Alan Bruce set himself on fire in front of the Supreme Court on Earth Day. He died from this act of self-immolation. Heed his warning. Take climate crisis seriously. End fossil fuels,” tweeted Washington Congressional candidate Rebecca Parson.

“This guy was my friend. He meditated with our sangha. This act is not suicide. This is a deeply fearless act of compassion to bring attention to climate crisis. We are piecing together info but he had been planning it for at least one year. #wynnbruce I am so moved,” tweeted Dr. Kritee K, a Zen Buddhist priest and senior scientist at the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF).
