Just Stop Oil activists are yelled at by furious London motorists for blocking road
A defiant Just Stop Oil activist wearing a tag on her ankle was today pictured being led away by police after joining the eco mob's latest slow march protest. The eco-clown, carrying a placard saying 'we won't die quietly', was forced off Clapham Road, in Stockwell, London, after police broke up the protest. And after being led away by two officers, the woman - called Lora Johnson from Southwold, in Suffolk - was pictured with the tag, which appeared to have a Just Stop Oil sticker plastered on it. In a video released by JSO, Lora said: 'I have a seven-year-old son to protect. The climate crisis is here, it's real, it's happening now and I'm in civil resistance against this corrupt Government. I urge everyone who has family or loved ones that they care about to join us too. We are going to win but we need to win quickly.' The footage comes after Lora was filmed taking part in a , in London, on Wednesday. The mother left customers at the iconic store perplexed as she stood at the top of an escalator and shouted 'I want my son to grow old and die in his bed' while raging about climate change. Footage inside the toy shop shows her insisting: 'We must get away from licensing oil and gas, there is no liveable future.' She claims they have 'looked at the science'. 'The climate crisis is here and it's only getting worse.' Johnson previously went viral when she gave an interview about climate change while being carried off the ground by police. In October she was charged over paint sprayed on to the rotating New Scotland Yard sign in London. Johnson, from Southwold, Suffolk, pleaded not guilty to charges of criminal damage. And in April she was among six Just Stop Oil protesters found guilty of disrupting traffic near the Natural History Museum, in central London. Johnson, 38, along with Benjamin Larsen, 25, Ben Sansam, 38, Anna Retallack, 58, Stephen Jarvis, 66, and Rachel Payne, 71, was found guilty of wilful obstruction of the highway. Westminster Magistrates' Court heard the mother was among 17 people who sat on the junction of Cromwell Road and Exhibition Road in London on October 19, causing traffic in both directions on the dual carriageway. Johnson's latest stunt today came as furious motorists were filmed raging at Just Stop Oil activists for causing rush hour mayhem with their slow march protests. Angry drivers were forced to mount pavements to get past the eco mob as they clogged traffic in during the eco-mob's 12th week of protest. In one video, a furious driver berates the campaigners as they slowly sauntered in the middle of the road with placards. 'Get out of the f***ing road you a******s. F***ing a******s,' raged the motorist before beeping his horn and again yelling 'F***ing a******s' as he drove away. In another video, a furious van driver from Ace Carpet Cleaners is seen mounting the kerb as he attempts to squeeze past a group of eco-zealots blocking the road. Once again, officers from the Met Police - which has already spent millions of pounds of taxpayer cash dealing with the eco mob - were forced to step in. They cleared a group of 30 protesters in Park Lane, Westminster, shortly after 8.40am. Then almost an hour later, officers were called once more to deal with another group of environmental fanatics, this time causing mayhem on Clapham Road, Stockwell. Five activists, who allegedly refused to get off the highway after officers issued them with a Section 12 order, were later arrested by police, the Met said. In a Tweet, the Met said: 'Police were on scene to JSO #protesters slow walking in #ClaphamRoad. 'Five protesters were arrested for breach of a Section 12 condition to move off the carriageway and were taken into custody.' Earlier, the force said: 'Police were on scene to 30 #protesters at #ParkLane where they were walking slowly in the road and disrupting traffic. 'The group was issued a section 12 condition to move off the carriageway at 08.42hrs. The road was cleared shortly afterward.' Later, Just Stop Oil protesters were pictured staging another protest in Selfridges - before being chucked out by security. A rabble of eco fanatics were seen being escorted out the renowned Oxford Street store by guards in suits, who told the activists: 'You're trespassing.' At one point, a small scuffle appears to break out as one of the protesters was shoved onto the elevator. 'Easy, easy, there's no need to get violent,' shouted one man. Today's disruption came after van drivers yesterday led a convoy of traffic onto the pavement to dodge Just Stop Oil protesters - as one cyclist blamed protesters for 'pushing' him onto the busy road. The eco-zealots disrupted traffic in Elephant and Castle but commuters fought back by finding ways to get past them. Video footage showed the moment many drove onto the pavement to avoid being held up by the activists, with one shouting 'morons' at them. Another clip shows how activists also failed to halt a pick-up truck driver zooming past them. issued section 12 conditions to clear the road in three areas of the city. It came after four members of Just Stop Oil were charged with breach of a section 12 condition to move off the carriageway following protests on Monday. All four were charged in connection with the protests at two locations in Camden. Hannah Schafer, 59, of Tanygroes, Ceredigion was charged in relation to a protest on High Holborn in Camden. Matthew Hempstock, 49, of Bristol, Emma Ireland, 39, of Bristol, and Ruth Jarman, 60, of Odiham, Hook, Hampshire, were charged in relation to a protest on New Oxford Street in Camden. All four appeared at Westminster Magistrates' Court yesterday. A fifth person arrested has been released with no further action, police said. Just Stop Oil has ramped up its protests this summer, with countless slow marches disrupting commuters through and have even targeted major sporting events. Ministers and police chiefs are seeking tougher sentences for protesters who invade sports pitches as vows to keep disrupting high-profile sporting events. Officials met with Home Secretary at last week to discuss ways to deter protesters from targeting sports matches after the group carried out demonstrations at the tennis tournament and the test. Police chiefs argued that 'tougher sentences' - such as jail time - are the 'strongest deterrence' to disruptive behaviour, a source inside the meeting told .
