A megaphone-wielding Just Stop Oil eco zealot travelled hundreds of miles from Scotland to lead a climate change march in London.
Ruth Lanser was one of 25 fanatics causing mayhem in the capital this morning and has now come under fire after journeying some 400 miles to join two slow marches in the city.
The campaigner, who claims to have studied at the Glasgow School of Arts, was one of several Scots known to have made the trip south today, with others including a grandmother-of-five from Fife.
Ms Lanser, who was cleared in January of obstructing lawful activity after sitting on a lorry at a fuel depot in Birmingham last year during another eco protest, was filmed leading a march through the City of London financial district.
Armed with her megaphone, the eco-activist in her twenties shouted: ‘I have travelled from Glasgow because my Government is not listening to me.
‘We are looking at recent IPCC reports that tell us we are not on track to meet our goals and yet the Government is about to license a new oil project that is the equivalent of 28 lower-income countries’ emissions.
‘This project is called Rosebank and it is a death sentence to everyone on this planet.’
She was joined by pensioner Julie Redman, 72, a grandmother-of-seven from Fife, Scotland – which is about 450 miles away from London.
In a statement released by Just Stop Oil, the retired NHS worker added: ‘I’m in despair about the climate crisis. It is accelerating at an alarming pace and yet our government is still giving out new licences for oil, gas and coal.
