Just Stop Oil supporter glues on during interview at LBC studio

A supporter of Just Stop Oil has glued himself to the microphone in the middle of an interview with Tom Swarbrick on LBC today. 

In a feisty performance, Nathan McGovern, 22 a student at King’s College London, challenged the presenter to use his privileged media platform to tell the truth about the government’s criminal inaction on the climate crisis before glueing himself to the microphone. 

Nathan said:

“I’m terrified, angry, and sad. Our government is in bed with the fossil fuel industry and leaving millions in the UK to choose between heating and eating. All this whilst fuelling famine and drought across the global South. The media has a duty and obligation to hold the government to account and sound the alarm on the emergency we are in but refuses to do so. If they won’t use their microphone to fight for ordinary people, ordinary people like me will.”

In the face of the worst cost of living crisis in a generation and looming catastrophe of climate breakdown, Just Stop Oil is calling on the UK government to get a grip and implement an emergency programme to reduce our reliance on oil and gas through insulation, renewables and free public transport. 

The Just Stop Oil Coalition is calling on all of those whose futures are being destroyed, who are facing poverty and who are outraged at the prospect of continuing our dependence on fossil fuels to step up and take action, join our daily zoom calls at 7pm. It’s 2022 and the time to stand by has passed.
