just Stop Oil are increasing their slow march protests in Central London.
Just Stop Oil say:
Resisting new oil and gas expansion has never been more urgent or more necessary. The resumption of Just Stop Oil’s campaign comes after news that Thailand experienced heat index temperatures of 54C at the weekend prompting warnings from authorities for people to remain indoors to avoid death from heatstroke. The severe heatwave that has swept across much of Asia, causing deaths and school closures in India and record-breaking temperatures in China, has been described as the worst April heatwave in Asia history. It is reported to have affected one in three people on the planet.
Since the Just Stop Oil campaign began on April 1st 2022, there have been over 2,100 arrests and 138 people have spent time in prison, many without trial. There are currently 2 Just Stop Oil supporters and 5 Insulate Britain supporters serving prison sentences for resisting new oil and gas.
In moments of emergency, we must stand up and be brave, we must stand up for good over evil, life over death, right over wrong. Just Stop all is calling on everyone to pick a side. Either you are actively supporting civil resistance fighting for life or you are complicit with genocide. The time is now. Join us and slow march while you still can. Our indefinite campaign of civil resistance begins today and will not end until our government ends new oil and gas.
