Past Actions & Coverage

"I've got handcuffs on but I'm not a criminal...
I'm doing this to safeguard our future"

On 1st April 2022, Hundreds of supporters of Just Stop Oil have blocked key oil terminals at 10 sites across the country with potential on fuel supplies to London and the South East.

Why are we taking action in line with the gas price hike? Because it is the fossil fuel industry that is benefiting from the exploitation of everyday people and knowingly destroying our future!

Doing things the 'normal' way didn't work

COP26 has failed: there are no meaningful commitments to halt fossil fuel production, our future now a reckless gamble.

Carry on emitting today and hope at some future date huge carbon sucking technology will solve the problem.

We know carbon is already killing us today, and yet global emissions are still rising.

Oil is treated as more valuable than our culture, our heritage, our bodies.

More valuable than the beautiful web of life on earth, more valuable than home.

What Next?

We have to face up to the magnitude of the crisis and choose: will we be bystanders complicit in the greatest ever genocide or will we resist so we can look future generations in the eye and proudly say, whatever happens, “I did all that I could”.

The new campaign JUST STOP OIL will mobilise 1000+ people from all walks of life to oppose the plans for new UK Oil fields during 2022.

Demand: That the UK government makes a statement that it will immediately halt all future licensing and consents for the exploration, development and production of fossil fuels in the UK.

Why: It’s the very first step to ensuring our survival. We already have more oil and gas than we can afford to burn. Let’s get on with ending our reliance on fossil fuels completely: by powering ahead with renewables and reducing the demand for energy; by insulating Britain and rethinking how we travel; by ensuring that no-one is left behind and everyone’s voice is heard.

Mobilisation: We are growing a movement, holding 20-30 public meetings per week, online and in person, across the UK.
