The participants in the action were arrested on charges of criminal damage and taken into custody at a police station. The environmental organization figures in more than 600 arrests carried out by the Police since the protests began in early October.
It is not the first time that the group has carried out a similar action. On the 16th, one of its members vandalized the window of an Aston Martin dealership in the British capital by spraying it with paint.
Likewise, Just Stop Oil activists have achieved great media coverage by acting against famous works of art. Two weeks ago, at the National Gallery in London, soup was thrown on ‘The sunflowers’ of Van Gogh, and yesterday they staged a protest in a Dutch museum during which a man tried to stick his head to the painting ‘The girl of the pearl’.
