Just Stop Oil Douse Climate Criminals in Orange Paint on Back to Back Days

Just Stop Oil demand that UK government immediately halt all new licenses and consents for new oil, gas and coal projects.


Imogen May, 24, said this, “I’m taking action with Just Stop Oil because I feel like we’re living in a sort of dystopian nightmare. Three continents are under severe heat alerts right now. A billion people could be forced out of the conditions suitable for supporting human life by 2030. An area the size of Portugal has burned down in Canada. Yet our government’s response to that is to make the problem many times worse by licensing new oil, gas and coal?.. It’s total madness!”


The second pair threw 5 liters of paint onto the Policy Exchange building, a ExxonMobil-funded think-tank that has a strong influence over the policies of Rishi Sunak’s government.


Ph.D. student Sean Irving, 24, said this, “Policy Exchange has been named the most powerful think-tank in the UK … Rishi Sunak has proudly claimed that they are behind the recent authoritarian policies that have cracked down on protest in the UK ... I’m taking action with Just Stop Oil today to call on the UK government to listen to the United Nations, the International Energy Agency and thousands of scientists over an opaque think-tank funded by fossil fuel money. We must do better.”


Environmental Science student, Ella Ward, 20, said this, “I am taking action with Just Stop Oil because I’m not going to stand by while my government continues with its genocidal and murderous plans to license new coal, oil and gas. … (They’ve criminalized) peaceful protesters for exercising their right to march for a liveable future. Meanwhile, the criminals in Parliament and in board rooms are getting away with murder.”
