London Gridlock: Just Stop Oil Activists Face Backlash as Public Confrontation Erupts Amid Traffic Chaos

Activists Disrupt London Traffic

In the latest development of their campaign, Just Stop Oil activists disrupt traffic on Hendon Way, one of London’s busiest roads.

The eco-mob, consisting of approximately 100 members, stages a slow march, prompting immediate intervention from Metropolitan Police officers.

Police Response and Arrests

Metropolitan Police officers swiftly respond to the traffic disruption caused by Just Stop Oil activists, leading to ‘multiple arrests.’

The force expresses concern over the strain on resources, stating that more than 60 arrests have been made, with expectations that this number could rise to around 100.

Passerby Confrontation Caught on Video

Video footage captures a confrontational moment between a passerby and Just Stop Oil activists during the slow march.

The angry member of the public sarcastically criticizes the protest, pointing out the irony of activists advocating to “Just Stop Oil” while using oil-based products in their daily lives.

Public Frustration and Disapproval

As motorists express frustration through honking horns, the passerby labels the activists a ‘joke’ for wasting time and petrol.

He highlights the inconsistency of their message, emphasizing that many of their belongings, including clothes, are made from oil-based materials.

Eco-Mob’s Response and Police Presence

Just Stop Oil responds to the arrests, stating that seven police vans arrived on the scene, attempting to detain supporters for allegedly breaching the Public Order Act.

The group claims that the police didn’t have enough officers to detain all supporters, allowing at least 70 to continue the march.

Previous Arrests and Disruption

This incident follows a similar protest on Holloway Road, where 25 activists were arrested for disrupting the main carriageway.

The group, wearing remembrance poppies, staged a slow march, causing traffic disruptions near Finsbury Park, coinciding with tributes to fallen soldiers in the capital.

Public Backlash and Confrontations

The public backlash against Just Stop Oil intensifies, with frustrated commuters taking matters into their own hands.

Video footage shows an electric scooter rider plowing into activists’ signs in a fit of frustration, reflecting the growing tension between the environmental protesters and the public.

Van Driver’s Fury and Continued Protests

A furious van driver attempts to navigate past the activists standing in the road, capturing the mounting anger among motorists.

Despite arrests and public confrontations, Just Stop Oil persists in its protest, with the Metropolitan Police estimating ongoing arrests and disruptions.
