Young activist Kangujam confronts energy minister at COP27

STORY: Licypriya Kangujam followed Goldsmith repeatedly asking him about when the activists would be released as he tried to walk away.

Environmental groups such as Extinction Rebellion and Just Stop Oil have been staging daily protests in London and across the country which have mainly been focused on oil facilities.

They have blocked roads around parliament and government departments, demanding Britain halts all new oil and gas projects.

Last month, the environmental activist group, threw two tins of Heinz tomato soup over van Gogh’s painting "Sunflowers" at London's National Gallery, one of five versions on display in museums and galleries around the world, before gluing herself to a wall alongside another protester.

Just Stop Oil supporters sprayed orange paint onto four central London buildings on Monday (October 31), marking the 31st day of climate change protests.

The group covered The Bank of England, News Corp headquarters, the Home Office and the MI5 building in orange paint sprayed from fire extinguishers, as they "represent the pillars that support and maintain the power of the fossil fuel economy – government, security, finance and media," it said in a press release.
