Once you start vandalizing someone else's property for your "cause", I stop listening. Prosecute them to the fullest. I suggest the Judge should sentence them to 90 days...of performing automotive oil changes.

Certainly attracting attention, but these protesters should be asking themselves whether it’s the right kind of attention. I’d say not.

how about researching what oil companies did in Nigeria Delta, and how they are doing all they can to get out of paying fines and not one of them went to prison. Many people died.

diffferent to putting a spot of glue on the wall of a public space.

@rodny

how can you say that with a straight face, when Mother Russia is bombing peoples homes & destroying their lives in Ukraine ?

@Rodney:

Yes, the conduct of the oil companies is very different to gluing your hands to a wall. So different, in fact, that it’s neither the subject of this article, nor even of the protesters themselves.

You can read English? It says “No NEW OIL”, and “JUST STOP OIL”

While I might agree about oil I would oppose sticking anything to 200 year old paintings like the Haywain.

@Rodney:

Yes, that’s what it says. The protesters want oil exploration and commercial exploitation stopped. Their protest is not against the methods companies use to extract oil, or on the pollution caused by it in the Niger Delta, or on the criminal activities there of the oil companies. The protests are about large-scale climate change caused by the burning of fossil fuels, with particular emphasis in this case on the granting of new oil exploration licenses. Now you’ve proved that you can read English, you might want to put some effort into comprehending it. That should show you why your first comment today is irrelevant to these protests.

The fingers could be cut off, the limbs would require surgery. with or without anesthetic?

Excuse my English sense of humour.

If you want to change thinking, the best way to achieve this is to aggregate/win support/ views, attitudes, beliefs of the public.

This is the opposite, sixth form petty politics, silly sods that should know better.

If these groups and individuals were really concerned about these issues they would try and win over the public rather than continuing to alienate them, with stunts including blocking roads and bridges and disrupting emergency services, vandalism and glueing themselves to electric tube trains in one of the most deprived areas of London. Most of these stunts are more about participants shouting “Look at ME! Look at how edgy and superior I am!” Getting arrested so they can have bragging rights at the next dinner party.

…which destroy the environment, cause global warming and climate change. US led NATOs unprecedented sanctions on Russia are not helping either. More coal is being used and smart countries like China and India are buying more fossil fuels.

so at least they are doing something.

Climate change protesters targeted a copy of Leonardo da Vinci's “The Last Supper”

On the other side of the Channel, Dutch farmers are turning their protest up to 11 after the “green” government is trying to squeeze the farmers. The fisherman have even joined in.
