Clarion Call Precurses Storm Ciarán
The previous day, a Section 7 order was also applied, and several supp-orters were subsequently banned from London pre-trial our of a crop of 62 arrestees. This banishment has not deterred this second wave of arrestees. There’s no telling who from the previous wave has joined this one, but now the count is over 100 arrests.
Historic winds did hit the UK and France, causing massive damage and flooding. But this is not a surprise, because unlike the story of Cassandra, who was not believed when she screamed there were soldiers inside the wooden horse, everyone knows that Just Stop Oil is correct - climate change is getting worse.
One of those taking action this morning, Rachel White 53, a mental health worker from Rochford said, “I have tried standing as a candidate for the Green Party, I have tried signing petitions, writing to MP’s, attending COP 26, but nothing’s changed. In fact it’s gotten worse, and so I can no longer be a bystander. I want my granddaughter and grandson to know I tried to do something. I want them to know their grandmother was not complicit with the crimes of this government. MPs are well informed and they know that the scale of suffering that has begun is an unprecedented crime against humanity, and that the suffering will only worsen if we do not stop oil & gas emissions, yet they’ve just green-lit Rosebank, which will emit more carbon into the atmosphere than 28 whole countries.”
Just Stop Oil are a part of the A22 Network of civil resistance, and have achieved a 90% name recognition in the UK.

“What are our responsibilities at this time? Because of the fossil fuel industry, we are facing horrors of a magnitude never before experienced in our existence. Our government continues to lead us to the edge of no return. We must stand up and defend ourselves. No one else is going to do it. It must be us, if we want to live.
Our methods must be disruptive, and they must be nonviolent. Our actions are evidence-based, credible, and we have a plan. The only thing missing at this point in time is YOU!”
