Vegans and Just Stop Oil eco-zealots have joined forces to bring central London to a standstill by pouring milk all over the roads and covering shopfronts with paint.
Protesters from the groups, offshoots of Extinction Rebellion, blocked roads and bridges in the capital this afternoon in order to highlight their demand that the government stops new oil and gas projects.
Members of the environmental protest groups Animal Rebellion and Just Stop Oil poured milk on Regent Street and St James’s Street as they marched through central London.
The shopfront of William Evans gun room was covered with green paint and red paint was poured on the floors of Farlow’s fishing, hunting and shooting supply store, as well as placing paper flowers outside.
The group say this is to expose the outdated practices of hunting, shooting and fishing, whilst also showing that a better world is possible.
Animal Rebellion say the act highlights the need for urgent and immediate transition towards a plant-based food system, away from the current one that includes the inefficient and unnecessary exploitation of nonhuman animals.
