  • Along with eco-mob Just Stop Oil, XR have brought 16 days of disruption to traffic, oil depots and commuters

  • Several oil firms secured injunctions to stop environmental protesters from targeting fuel processing sites

I think it is becoming clear why most of them chose to be climate protestors.
