No More Extra Lives Just Stop Oil Disrupt Gaming Tournament
They smuggled in super soakers loaded with paint, and damaged the set during the live show, to the dismay of the contestants and hosts.
A Just Stop Oil spokesperson said, “Video games let us escape into new and exciting dimensions, but real world physics are about to deliver the deaths of billions. Put more carbon into the atmosphere at this point and it’s game over. Gamers co-operate to win, and we need these skills to survive. Everyone must step up and join in civil resistance against new oil and gas, because this isn’t a game. Let’s unite to make this world safe, so that we can get back to exploring cyber worlds. Join Just Stop Oil on a slow march through London from 29th October”
Idris, a 20 year old artist from London, was one of those taking action today. They said, “It is vital that we draw as much attention as possible to the genocidal decisions the government is making. I won’t stand aside while billions are sentenced to death and neither should you.”

The gaming tournament was sponsored by Barclays Bank, who financed around $167 billion in fossil fuels. This action not only puts pressures on gaming institutions to change their ways, but to ask the youth to turn out in London Oct 29th and onward with Just Stop Oil.
Join DE This Sunday for a talk about how you can join this exciting group - and start making headlines of your own! Or at least help others do the same.
“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!”
