Breaking: Greenpeace blocks Downing Street over oil drilling

Greenpeace activists shutdown Downing Street with an oil soaked statue of Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Across the world and here in the UK, our dependence on fossil fuels is causing havoc – deadly floods and heat wavesrising gas prices, queues at petrol pumps, offshore workers in and out of precarious work. We need to get off fossil fuels and transition to renewable energy.

But Boris Johnson has said he backs 16 new North Sea oil and gas projects going ahead – including Cambo. They could be approved at any moment. It’s time for our over-reliance on fossil fuels to end.

So we delivered the Prime Minister a message he can’t ignore. Greenpeace activists shutdown Downing Street with an oil soaked statue of Prime Minister Boris Johnson. This will be the Prime Minister’s legacy if he fails to stop Cambo and back a just transition.

 

Take action

Tweet Boris Johnson and call on him to reject the Cambo drilling permit and focus instead on delivering a just transition to renewable energy. 

TWEET BORIS JOHNSON
