Who are Just Stop Oil? Protest group blocking refineries across the UK. Who are Just Stop Oil? A bunch of self-indulgent prats doing the work of the elite they claim to oppose

Protest group Just Stop Oil hit the headlines on Friday after blocking the entrance to a series of oil facilities across the UK.

The activists first entered the public eye last month with a series of protests, which included chaining themselves to goalposts at football grounds.

Their demonstrations come as energy bills skyrocketed in the UK following a rise in the price cap, sparking a cost of living crisis for millions of households.

But who are Just Stop Oil, and what are their demands?

Who are Just Stop Oil?

Just Stop Oil are a youth-led protest group calling for the UK government to put an end to all new fossil fuel projects to halt climate change.

Writing on a crowdfuding page the group says: “Allowing the extraction of new oil and gas resources in the UK is an obscene, genocidal policy that will kill our children and condemn humanity to oblivion. It just has to stop.”

Activists from Just Stop Oil told the Guardian they will mobilise “upwards of 1,000 people”.

They said their protests would be “a fusion of other large-scale blockade-style actions you have seen in the past.”

What protests have they done so far?

Louis McKechnie, 21, made national news after tying himself to a goalpost at Goodison Park last month during the Everton vs Newcastle game.

The game was paused as the mechanical engineering student was removed by pitch staff while sporting an orange t-shirt with the words “Just Stop Oil” emblazoned across the middle.
