Climate activists arrested for spray-painting private jets in the UK

Two climate activists were arrested last June 20 after covering private jets in orange paint. 

Essex Police confirmed that they have arrested two women on suspicion of criminal damage and interference with the use or operation of national infrastructure.

Climate activists just stop oil

The police received a call around 5:10 am leading to a private area of the Stansted Airport in London after reports that there had been people who had caused damage to two aircrafts.

In a post made by Just Stop Oil on X (formerly Twitter), they wrote, “🚨JUST STOP OIL PAINT PRIVATE JETS HOURS AFTER TAYLOR SWIFT LANDS 🔥Jennifer and Cole cut the fence into a private airfield at Stansted where @taylorswift13’s private jet is parked, demanding an emergency treaty to end fossil fuels by 2030.”

“Over the years, I’ve had to realize that even working in sustainability provides me with essentially no ability to make the necessary changes to prevent the complete collapse of our natural systems. I have to take desperate measures to make my voice heard,” as stated by Kowalski. “In 2024 we all have to be considering what we can do each day to change the course our society is on. We need an emergency treaty to stop the extraction and burning of oil, gas and coal by 2030.”

“We were living in two worlds: one where billionaires live in luxury, able to fly in private jets away from the other, where unlivable conditions are being imposed on countless millions,” Macdonald stated. “Meanwhile, this system that is allowing extreme wealth to be accrued by a few, to the detriment of everyone else, is destroying the conditions necessary to support human life in a rapidly accelerating never-ending ‘cruel summer’. Billionaires are not untouchable, climate breakdown will affect every single one of us.”

Chief Supt Simon Anslow released a statement and said, “We maintain a constant presence at the airport and this presence will be heightened over the summer period. We are not anti-protest but we will always take action where criminal acts take place.”

Just Stop Oil is an environmental activist group that are working together to demand the government of the U.K. to work with other countries to agree to stop the extraction and burning of oil, gas and coal by 2030.
