Just Stop Oil protesters smear King Charles III wax with chocolate cake | UK News


Two Just Stop Oil supporters covered the Madame Tussauds wax model of King Charles III with chocolate cake.

The climate activists demand that the government suspend all new oil and gas licenses and authorizations.

Eilidh McFadden, 20, from Glasgow, and Tom Johnson, 29, a painter and decorator from Sunderland, came through the gate of the London venue on Monday morning and smeared the model with cake.

In a statement, the couple said: “We are here because we seek to protect our freedoms and our rights, because we seek to protect this green and pleasant land which is our heritage to all.

“The science is clear. The request is simple: just stop new oil and gas. It’s child’s play.”

The Metropolitan Police tweeted: “We responded quickly to an incident at Madame Tussauds after two people threw food at a statue around 10.50am.

“They were both arrested for criminal damage.”

The force later confirmed that four people had been arrested.

Just Stop Oil said Monday was their 24th day of civil unrest.

Previous protests have included activists stick to the famous Abbey Road level crossing in London.

Others have scaled Queen Elizabeth II Bridge 200ft (60m) above the Dartford Crossing, which had to close for 36 hours and caused six-hour delays around much of the M25.

Two Just Stop Oil protesters also threw tomato soup on Van Gogh’s sunflowers painting in the National Gallery, London.

On Sunday, the group praised activists in Germany who threw mashed potatoes on the painting Les Meules by Claude Monet, sold for 110 million dollars in 2019.
