A young, male member of the climate cult group Just Stop Oil decided to pay a visit to an Aston Martin show room located in London’s Park Lane. According to Sky News, he sprayed orange paint on the front of the luxury car’s show room and then proceeded to yell at the crowd gathered:
“We will not be stopped, by injunctions that are intended to silence protest. We’re a nonviolent civil disobedience movement. We know that the changes in the laws, the injunctions against us are irrelevant in comparison to mass starvation, with the genocidal policies that our government is pushing for. We’ve got 100 new fossil fuel licenses in the North Sea.”
Bystanders then began laughing at him and when one views the video of the incident, it is not hard to understand why.
This incident took place soon after Victor Van Gogh’s classic painting Sunflowers was vandalized by the same green organization and there have been a number of climate-related actions conducted by environmentalist group, like Just Stop Oil, in London since July.
Clearly, British officials need to implement measures to crack down on climate-related vandalism. But, as far as the misfit in the sports bra and the red skirt is concerned, half a year in jail would be a good way to deter others considering doing the same.
