Just Stop Oil said, “At around 8am, 24 Just Stop Oil supporters, in four groups, began marching on key roads in Camden, Battersea, Wandsworth and Borough.
“At 8:10 a frustrated resident threw a bucket of water over a ‘mini-march’ of six people on Rochester Road in Camden.”
Ru Kenyon, a teacher from London who participated in the slow illegal march said, “I hate causing disruption, but my conscience says I have to put myself in harm’s way by marching in the street, in the same way those demanding change have done for hundreds of years.”
Paul Bleach, a gardener and fulltime carer from Portsmouth said, “We are marching in the road because sadly all other forms of dissent are ignored.”
