Just Stop Oil escalate protests AGAIN, unleashing 50 eco-zealots on five locations in what threatens to be a repeat of yesterday’s disruption

  • Just Stop Oil  threatened to unleash another day of chaos with five new marches 
  • The campaign group has vowed to ‘paralyse London’ by holding up traffic

Just Stop Oil today unleashed another day of chaos on London’s streets as 46 environmental protesters launched five more ‘slow marches’ across the city. 

Members of the eco-protest group descended on five separate locations throughout the UK’s capital city as they continued their efforts to ‘paralyse London’. 

Today, Just Stop Oil members launched five separate slow marches across the centre and west of London

The protest group’s slow marches are seeking to force the UK government into halting all new oil and gas licenses. 

This morning’s protests threaten to see a repeat of the massive disruption caused yesterday after the group launched its biggest ever slow march across 15 locations.

Today’s marches comes after UK prime minister Rishi Sunak yesterday said he would not be giving in to the ‘eco zealots’ threatening to disrupt the ‘British summer’.

The prime minister instead claimed the UK would ‘transition to net zero’ in a ‘sensible, practical way’ as he argued Just Stop Oil’s protests are not a ‘constructive way to tackle climate change’. 

Yesterday’s protests saw Just Stop Oil campaigners launch their largest day of action ever as 200 protestors targeted 15 separate locations. 

The protests saw 183 Just Stop Oil members moved off the roads and 21 campaigners arrested. 

The protest group has vowed to paralyse London in calling on the government to stop giving out new oil and gas licenses 

The environmental group has repeatedly hit the headlines this summer after protestors halted play at Wimbledon and interrupted a live Channel 4 recording.  

Just Stop Oil’s protests have caused clashes with furious members of the public who have been seen ripping up the protestors signs and throwing them off the road.

Today’s campaign started at 8.03am after eight Just Stop Oil protestors began a slow march along New Kent Road, in the London borough of Southwark.

Minutes later, at 8.05am the Metropolitan Police moved on six protestors walking down Talgarth Road in Hammersmith and Fulham.

Just minutes after that, the Metropolitan Police arrested two Just Stop OIl campaigners as another 18 environmentalists began walking slowly down a street in Ealing at 8.17.

The protest group later launched another slow march along Netherwood Road in Shepherds Bush at 8.24am. 

Another two slow marches were launched by Just Stop Oil at 9.07 and 9.08 as protesters began walking down Wandsworth Bridge Road in Fulham and Blackheath Road in Greenwich.  

The campaign group’s protests see them block traffic by walking slowly down main roads in luminous orange vests.
