In a flurry of paint, that included paintballs, super soakers filled with paint, and an industrial strength paint spraying machine, The Scottish Parliament was overwhelmed and quickly covered in red paint.
The coordinated disobedience of This Is Rigged got the attention of local presses, who were nice enough to give an interview to activist Cat Scothorne, “It’s the second time we’ve done that actually, because we first did it after they banned us from FMQ’s (First Minister’s Questions) and we said will lead to us shutting down the Oil Industry in Scotland. And we didn’t get a reply. And today we thought well you know, yesterday all the heat is on Westminster Rishi Sunak approving 100 new oil and gas licenses - but it’s coming out of Scotland’s North Sea and the Scottish government’s silence has been deafening. There’s been a few MPs who are against new oil.
But there’s not been an announcement by the government unequivocally opposing all new oil and gas licenses. There’s been a draft energy transition transition plan and they said there might be a presumption against new oil. All this is just airy fairy things which aren’t coming into a solid stance which is exactly what we need to happen right now. Because there is no ambiguity about new oil. It has to be a no. So their inability to stand up to Westminster is just morally unjustifiable and it’s failing everyone in Scotland right now. “

“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!”
