On Saturday morning, three traffic intersections were targeted by groups of climate activists disrupting the flow of traffic near Baker Street.

The actions marked an eighth day of action from the group who are trying to highlight warnings from the International Energy Agency and the United Nations that new fossil fuel exploration will break the Paris Agreement and lead to inevitable and deadly climate crisis.

Liz Truss is pushing ahead with more than 100 new oil and gas exploration licences and fast tracking 5 new fossil fuel projects.

Despite changes in the law, and the threat of imprisonment, supporters are arriving in shifts from around the country to continue the campaign of disruption on a daily basis throughout October.

25 people were arrested yesterday, with around 200 arrests in total for the first week of action. There are currently five JSO activists in prison on remand or serving sentences for climate action.

A wide coalition of groups was launched in July working together to highlight government recklessness and demand a just transition, beginning with the call for no new fossil fuel licensing.
