Just Stop Oil statement on the death of Xavier Gonzalez-Trimmer

We are mourning the death of an extraordinary young man who was part of our Community of Resistance. He was loved for his bright spirit, his strength, his humour and wit. Those who had the joy of knowing Xavi and sharing his life will be devastated and our heart goes out to them. We are all deeply shocked.

Xavi took action with a sense of service and love. He demanded a future worth living and for that the state sent him, with many others, to jail. We have a duty to listen to them, to respect the lives they deserve to live and the lives of those as yet unborn.

If that future, that joyous, liveable future is taken away, if governments and politicians refuse to listen, if the judiciary continues to imprison and penalise good, courageous people, then the mental burden visited on our young people will only increase.

What will it take for this government to act, to start protecting and stop damaging us, to recognise the courage and bravery displayed by young people like Xavier Gonzalez-Trimmer?

You will forever be in our hearts. We love you Xavi. Rest In Peace.
