Death – Obituary – Accident and Crime News : Just Stop Oil, an eco-conscious group, staged a disruptive protest outside the £6.6 million home of Rishi Sunak in Kensington last night. The protesters, armed with banners and placards, criticized new oil and gas licensing while banging pots and pans together and singing into a microphone, causing disturbance to the residents trying to sleep. According to the group’s social media post, 14 protesters were arrested by the police during the demonstration, although officers have since confirmed that 16 protesters were taken into custody and are currently being held at various central London police stations.

The group, Just Stop Oil, took to X (formerly known as Twitter) to share their actions, stating that 18 of their supporters were present outside Sunak’s house, enjoying a performance by Louise Harris, who sang her original song “We Tried.” The footage shared by the group shows Harris singing passionately into a microphone before a police car approaches the scene.

This is not the first time that activists have targeted Sunak’s residence. In August, Greenpeace protesters climbed on Sunak’s £2 million mansion in Richmond, North Yorkshire, while he was on a family vacation in the US. They draped the house in black fabric, covering an area of 200 square meters, to protest against his support for expanding North Sea oil and gas drilling. Two activists on the ground also unfurled a banner questioning Sunak’s choice between “Oil Profits or Our Future?”

The latest protest has sparked a mixed response on social media, with some condemning the act of targeting MPs and their families at their homes. However, the activists argue that their actions are necessary to draw attention to the disastrous consequences of increased drilling in the North Sea and its impact on the climate crisis.

It remains unclear who reported the protesters to the police, but by the time the officers arrived, four protesters had already climbed onto the roof of Sunak’s house. Eventually, the banner was removed, and the protesters climbed down peacefully.

The ongoing protests by Just Stop Oil and Greenpeace demonstrate the growing concern among environmental activists regarding the government’s support for the oil and gas industry. These groups believe that such actions are necessary to raise awareness and push for more sustainable alternatives to fossil fuels.
