WE have a right to life. It is criminal not to protect that life.

Climate Activists are handcuffed and imprisoned and yet the real criminals walk free in Westminster.

It has been proven time and again that common people do not matter.

This is evident as we keep pumping oil and gas at our expense while the elite pocket the profits, or at the beginning of the Covid pandemic when inaction and apathy from government let ministers rake in profits from dodgy deals while our parents and grandparents were left to die.

The high and mighty, rich and well connected in government should be handcuffed.

The Just Stop Oil protesters are the real heroes with whom we must stand shoulder to shoulder, for the sake of our very own survival, to demand the right actions from our government.
