Earlier on Saturday, hundreds of activists staged a sit-in at the Venice Film Festival’s red carpet to demand a ban on large cruise ships in Venice and call for action on climate change. They earned Jagger’s support.
“I’m absolutely behind that,” Jagger said, according to THR. “I’m glad they’re doing that because they’re the ones who are going to inherit the planet.”
Actor Donald Sutherland, who plays an artist in the film, said he agreed with Jagger and offered his own criticisms of Trump, Brazil’s Jair Bolsonaro and UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
“Mick is right when he said the reforms that were instituted during the Obama administration were barely adequate, and now they’re being torn about,” Sutherland said.
“It’s the same in Brazil and they will be torn apart in England,” he said.
“When you’re my age, when you’re 85 years old and you have children and grandchildren, you will leave them nothing if we don’t vote those people out of office in Brazil in London in Washington,” Sutherland said. “They are ruining the world. We have contributed to the ruination of it, but they are ensuring it.”
Also at the event, Jagger said it was a “very strange time,” with more polarization and less civility.
“I’m not sure I was always against civility, but when you see it now, the incivility of political life, which we see in so many countries, including my own, especially this last week — and in other countries, particularly the US — when you see this, it’s a bit of a sea change from what you were used to,” Jagger said, according to THR.
“I don’t mean that manners are everything. But the combination of all these things, where it’s going to lead us,” he added, is “polarization, rudeness and lying.”
