Just Stop Oil back twice jailed supporter in Rochdale by-election

February 7th

A spokesperson for Just Stop Oil said

“The Reverend Mark Coleman is the only candidate in the Rochdale byelection worth voting for. The others are either supporting genocide or failing to do what is needed as we face the loss of ordered civil society.

Labour is backing the Tory’s new oil and gas while supporting mass killing in Gaza, while the Conservatives have systematically failed to defend the UK. The other parties offer no radical path to bring people together, the only pathway to work out how we face our current predicament. 

Just Stop Oil, along with many Rochdale voters, can see that politics is broken and is not protecting us. Only Mark Coleman, who, recognising the scale of the threat we face, has sacrificed his liberty standing up to those planning the killing of millions [1][2].

Just Stop Oil supports The Revered”.
