“Climate protesters in the U.K. blocked traffic in London on Tuesday, grinding the city to a halt and prompting so much anger that commuters attacked them. Just Stop Oil protesters organized several marches across the city, aiming to disrupt traffic. The protests occurred at a number of bridges, including the Tower and London bridges, according to TMX News. The protest reiterated the group’s demands for Britain to immediately stop all new oil and gas production, usually employing a number of provocative protests that involve the destruction of famous art or private property to gain attention and outrage the public. The traffic demonstrations — the latest in a series of similar demonstrations since April — proved one too many for some commuters as they fought back, even getting hostile with protesters at times. Police only intervened to arrest the man who got physical with the demonstrators, prompting criticism from nearby pedestrians.” (05/25/23)
