This week’s UN Report states that “Staying under 1.5C is no longer credible.”
Going over 1.5C locks in the loss of the coral reefs, the loss of 25% of the world’s fish stocks, the destruction of hundreds of millions of livelihoods and millions of innocent lives.
Going over 1.5C means island nations going underwater. This constitutes an act of illegal war.
This is just the beginning.
From today Just Stop Oil will pause its campaign of civil resistance. We are giving time to those in the government who are in touch with reality to consider their responsibilities to this country at this time.
If, as we sadly expect, we receive no response from ministers to our demand by the end of Friday 4th November, we will escalate our legal disruption against this treasonous government. Our action will be proportionate to the task of stopping the crime against humanity which is new oil and gas.
The facts are crystal clear – drilling for more oil and gas is taking us over 1.5C. There is no greater crime
You do not get to murder people just because you can.
For 32 days we have been peacefully blocking roads to demand that our government take action to protect our country, humanity and life on earth. Do they really want us to continue in civil resistance, or will they come and talk to us, and promise us a livable future without oil?
