No Jail for Pump Smashers
Six Just Stop Oil supporters were found guilty of criminal damage for smashing petrol pumps at Cobham services on the M25 last year, received suspended sentences at Lewes Crown Court today.
The six were given sentences of between 6 months and 17 months suspended for 18 months, 200 hours community service and costs of £526. Louis McKechnie and Bethanie Mogie received the longest suspended sentences of 17 months and 15 months respectively 
In his mitigation statement to the court Louis McKechnie said, “In school I was taught about the Suffragettes, and I was taught about the Nazis. The suffragettes employed the same tactics we do and were punished harshly for it, but due to their efforts and their valuing ethics over the laws of the times, they made this country a better place for generations to come.”

Doing Nothing is Murder
There’s really no need for human beings to murder other human beings. All we have to do is keep doing what we’ve been doing.
Rise and Resist or We Perish
Can you not see it’s vital that we keep the planet as physically stable as possible? It’s not rocket science. The world is fucked enough as it is. The military refer to Climate change as ‘a risk amplifier’. It makes every problem worse. This is not a game. Please stop talking about entertainment 24/7 and wake up and defend this planet - or we are all going down.

“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!”
