Just Stop Oil Eco-Mob sparks M25 rush hour mayhem AGAIN as they climb portals

Just Stop Oil dodged the police to climb back onto a different highway bridge today – despite choosing the same time and method for their protest.

Tired drivers ignored intelligent highway markers to pull into closed lanes in a desperate attempt to get to work.

The high-profile eco-fanatics want an end to the use of fossil fuels for the sake of the environment.

Protester Charlotte Kirin, 53, social worker and Bury St Edmunds parent: “To survive we must take action to stop new oil and gas.

“As long as the government acts as if this is not a priority, I will do whatever it takes to demand a response.

“History shows us that we must challenge unjust laws.

“What is being done to people around the world in the name of profit is the greatest injustice imaginable.

“I will not turn my back on people whose lives are being destroyed for rich men’s profit.”

Edred Whittingham, 25, a Cambridge student, said: “Politics in this country are broken and it’s up to ordinary people to fix it. We live in a time when millions of people are literally starving or freezing to death in their homes while fossil fuel companies are making record profits. We can change this, but we must resist it. Climate change will destroy the global food system and drive hundreds of millions of people from their homes, leading to hunger, war and social unrest. That our government is still approving new fossil fuel projects is an act of genocide.’

Molly Berry, 70, a retired lipreading teacher from Hertfordshire, said: “The climate crisis is not left or right, it is not opinion, point of view or cause. It’s real, and it’s happening now, and it’s very close to destroying absolutely everything we love. When my friends show me photos of their grandchildren, it breaks my heart to think about what they will experience in their lives. So I’m willing to risk my freedom to demand that the government stop all new oil and gas.’

Essex Police said on their morning: “We are currently at the scene on the northbound stretch of the M25 at the Dartford River Crossing where a protester has climbed onto the gantry at Junction 31.

“Dartford Tunnel and two lanes are closed. We’re working as fast as we can to keep you moving.’

There are also protests at junction 20 in Hertfordshire, with police admitting: “We are responding to reports of protest activity at junction 20 (Kings Langley) of the #M25.

“Officials are on site. Please avoid the area and seek an alternative route if possible. We will update you as soon as possible.’

Surrey Police also jumped into action – after the protester climbed the scaffolding.

The force tweeted: “Officers are on site attending to protesters who climbed onto motorway bridges between J8-9 and J12-13 along the M25 this morning.

“Traffic is currently stopped in both directions at these junctions. Thank you for your patience. We will update asap.

“Officials are also on site between J7-8 where another protester climbed onto the freeway portal.

Police made 35 arrests yesterday after motorists were held up for five hours as protesters scaled a bridge on the M25.

The Met and officers from other forces moved in after more than a dozen protesters forced the closure of several sections of the M25 during the morning rush hour – despite a court order barring them from disrupting the motorway.

An ambulance was reportedly among the vehicles stranded by the stunts, meaning it took the emergency vehicle “forever and ever” to get through the blockade, according to another trapped motorist.

The arrests came after Just Stop Oil activist Louise Harris cried out, through unconvincing tears, “You might hate me for this” as she scaled a bridge.

Injunction meant to stop eco-zealots shutting down M25

National Highways has obtained a High Court injunction to prevent Just Stop Oil protesters from disrupting England’s busiest motorway.

The court has issued another injunction aimed at halting unlawful demonstrations on the M25, which encircles Greater London, in a bid to end the environmental group’s disruption of the busy road.

That means anyone driving onto the freeway and holding onto an object or structure on it, and anyone assisting in such an act, can be considered a contempt of court.

They face imprisonment, an unlimited fine and confiscation of assets.

The injunction was obtained in addition to a court order obtained by National Highways earlier this year targeting protesters, including those from Insulate Britain.

The existing National Highways injunction covers the M25, M25 feeder roads and main roads in Kent and around the Port of Dover until May 2023.

As protests formed in Surrey – at junction 6 and three other locations between junctions 8-9, 12-13 and 13-14 – as well as in Hertfordshire at junctions 20, 22 and 23 and in east London at junction 25 kilometers of queues and Essex at junctions 27 and 30 ground traffic to a standstill.

Commuters trying to get to work took to social media to express their frustration on a day made worse by the chaos in Britain’s rail network. Train strikes planned for Saturday, Monday and Wednesday were canceled on Friday – but rail companies are running a reduced service because not enough drivers were scheduled.

Harris, a wannabe pop star who previously compared herself to a prisoner of war after football fans threw drinks at her as she stormed onto the field during a game, was one of the activists who attended.

In video filmed from the bridge, she appeared to choke and exclaimed: “Hi, my name is Louise, I’m 24 years old and I’m here… I’m here because I have no future.

“And you might hate me for it, and you have the right to hate me. But I wish you would direct all that anger and hatred at our government.

“You betray young people like me.”

The protests came despite a major operation by the Metropolitan Police to thwart their plans which saw the arrest of a number of protesters including leader Roger Hallam last night.

National Highways has also been granted a court order to put an end to disruption on Britain’s busiest motorway.

But the controversial activists, who staged a month of action in October, were back in force this morning, much to the fury of frustrated drivers.

Most of the protesters were brought down by police in about an hour.
