Just Stop Oil Vandalises Luxury Car Showroom – After Throwing Tinned Soup on Van Gogh’s Painting and Ruining New Scotland Yard Sign 

Protesters from Just Stop Oil sprayed paint on the Aston Martin showroom in London. The protesters, who want the government to halt all new oil and gas licences and consents, set up the roadblock at 11 a.m. on Sunday.

Demonstrators sat down in the street, holding large orange banners, with some glueing or locking themselves together.

After that, one protester sprayed orange paint on the nearby Aston Martin showroom in Park Lane.

Chloe Thomas, 19, a pregnant mother and freelancer from Cannock who joined the action, said: “How do I explain to my daughter in the years to come where the animals went, where the culture went, where the beauty went, why there are no bees and why I can’t put food in her tummy?

“You know it’s bad, don’t you? As citizens, as humans, as parents and children, we have a responsibility and a right under British law to protect ourselves and those we love.”

“Please understand these actions are not easy for any of us,” said Patrick Michael John McCarthy, 67, a carer from Telford who was also at the protest.

“It is uncomfortable, sometimes frightening and financially draining, so why do it?

“Because we have seen the devastating truth about the existential threats we face and cannot ‘unsee’ that. The real question is why millions aren’t in civil resistance rather than why I am.”

Just Stop Oil protesters threw tins of tomato soup over Vincent van Gogh’s Sunflowers painting in the National Gallery and sprayed paint over the rotating New Scotland Yard sign just a few days ago.

The campaign group said it will also be protesting outside Downing Street every day in October.
