As the group’s daily protests continue, activists from Just Stop Oil have sprayed orange paint on the Home Office, MI5 headquarters, and the Bank of England. According to the group, six supporters covered the buildings around 8.30 a.m. on Monday.
During the latest round of protests, activists sprayed the News Corp headquarters at London Bridge.
“We are not prepared to stand by and watch as everything we love is destroyed, while vulnerable people go hungry, and fossil fuel companies and the rich profit from our misery,” a Just Stop Oil spokesperson said.
“The era of fossil fuels should be long gone, but the creeping tentacles of fossil fuel interests continue to corrupt our politics, government and media as they have for decades.
“Well, we’re done with begging. We are acting to stop new oil and gas because it is the right thing to do.
“The Government has the power to end the disruption today by agreeing to stop new oil and gas.”
Scotland Yard said a number of people have been arrested following the incident.
“Officers responded quickly to all incidents and a number of people have now been arrested on suspicion of criminal damage,” the force tweeted.
The incident comes after drivers dragged protesters out of the way and a woman yelled that they were impeding the passage of her sick child as Just Stop Oil activists blocked two roads in east London on Sunday.
