Just Stop Oil eco-zealots blockade key roads in Central, South and West London on 29th day of protest in the capital
At about midday, 61 protesters marched through Charing Cross Road, Kensington High Street, Kennington Road and Blackfriars Road and sat down holding banners.
Some glued their hands to the tarmac while others locked on to one another – sparking concerns of traffic chaos.
A spokesman for the group said: ‘This is not a one day event, expect us every day and anywhere.
‘Our supporters will be returning – today, tomorrow and the next day – and the next day after that – and every day until our demand is met: no new oil and gas in the UK.
‘We will not be intimidated by changes to the law, we will not be stopped by private injunctions sought to silence peaceful people.’
Anna Berrill, 20, a philosophy student from Leeds who is participating in the demonstration, said: ‘I’m doing this because it breaks my heart to witness the tragedies that are happening and will keep coming because of our actions, and to live in a crumbling world and not do anything is unbearable.’
Just Stop Oil activists have blocked four roads throughout central, south and west London – marking the 29th consecutive day of chaos
Just Stop Oil is demanding the government halts all new oil and gas licences and consents.
The latest protest comes amid a month of chaos in London and the wider United Kingdom due to repeated Just Stop Oil demonstrations.
On Friday, two Just Stop Oil activists were arrested after spraying orange paint across a Rolex store in Knightsbridge.
More than 600 activists have been arrested so far in October following a host of stunts, from throwing soup at Van Gogh’s Sunflowers, to scaling the QE2 Bridge and causing more than a dozen major roadblocks.
Other stunts have included blocking Trafalgar Square and Parliament Square, and throwing tomato soup on Van Gogh’s Sunflowers painting in the last few weeks.
The eco-zealots provocative protests have led to angry clashes with pedestrians and motorists blocked by their demonstrations.
