The text explains that around 11: 00 (local time) a group of 14 supporters sat with banners in the central Park Lane – near the iconic Hyde Park – and stopped traffic to demand that the Government stop new oil and gas licenses and permits.

🔔A Response to Home Secretary @SuellaBraverman We will not be intimidated by changes to the law, we will not be stopped by injunctions sought to silence non-violent people. These are irrelevant when set against mass starvation, slaughter, the loss of our rights, freedoms… pic.twitter.com/xSFATKPEda

Likewise, it indicates that these events are the continuation of more than two weeks in a row of protests by Just Stop Oil. In this sense, he details that since last April 1 his followers have been arrested more than 1.700 times, with five of them currently in prison.

“Act of resistance”

“This is an act of resistance against a criminal government and his project of genocidal death,” reads the statement. “Our supporters will be back, today, tomorrow and the day after tomorrow, and the day after, and every day until our demand is met: no new oil and gas in the UK,” he adds.

The activists maintain that they will not be intimidated by changes in the law nor will they be detained by “private court orders” to silence peaceful people, since, they say, their supporters understand that this type of action is “irrelevant” when compared to “mass starvation, slaughter”, as well as the loss of “rights, freedoms and communities”.

Finally, they urge people to support their supporters who have been imprisoned “for protecting our future”. “We will not die in silence, it will be ordinary people, like you, your friends, colleagues and neighbors who will do what our government cannot do,” they conclude.
