They have also thrown paint on several buildings in central London.

In its demands and complaints, Just Stop Oil points out that it is necessary to end the dependence on fossil fuels, but that the British government has not acted correctly. “The transition will require massive investment in clean technology, renewable energy and energy storage, but it cannot be done at current levels of energy consumption. We need to reduce energy demand by isolating Britain and rethinking how we travel, including providing free public transport everywhere."
