Eco mob WILL Return: Insulate Britain will resume road blockade campaign during half term week before COP26. They claim that Boris’ Net Zero Strategy completely fails to meet the challenges we face’

  • Insulate Britain warns that they will resume roadblockade protests next Monday
  • Families on half-term holiday are subject to further demonstrations.
  • In response to Net Zero reports, Group stated that it would ‘rise against tyranny’

Insulate Britain, an environmental group, has warned that they will reopen their roadblockade protests next week, causing misery to families on half-term holiday.

The group stated it would ‘rise up to tyranny’ in protest to the Government’s Net Zero reports. It claimed that these reports ‘completely fail’ to address the challenges it now faces.

Insulate Britain had previously said on October 14 that it was pausing its protests – which have brought misery to motorists across London – until Monday, October 25.

Hundreds of protesters were arrested for blocking motorway junctions and roundabouts. They ran onto the roads as the lights turned green on September 13th.

To make maximum impact, they have concentrated their protests at rush hour. Motorists will take it upon themselves remove them if police arrive too slow.

A spokesperson said that Insulate Britain had reviewed the British Government’s Heat and Buildings Strategy and Net Zero Strategy and the Cost of Net Zero Report.

“We concluded that, although these would have made a good start 30 years ago, they do not meet the challenges we face now.

Mother who drove through activists with her car labels them ‘terrorists.’

A mother who drove her Range Rover through Insulate Britain activists this week was called a terrorist by the group. She claimed that the women she hit were making ‘ow ow’ cries and she had been ramming them with her Range Rover. 

Sherrilyn Speid (34), of Purfleet in Essex was charged with ‘attempted murder’ after she drove her car into protesters at Junction 31 of M25 near Thurrock.

Ms Speid was seen getting out of her Range Rover to confront protesters after she was stopped while bringing her son, 11 years old, to school.

She said, “I was absolutely fuming that they were in my way of taking my son to school.” How dare they do that?

“What we need in this “period of consequence” is a wartime-style national effort, a united front for shared sacrifice, and not a plan to cross our fingers and hope for best. 

“Therefore Insulate Britain will keep our campaign of nonviolent civil resistance.”

Insulate Britain, which is an offshoot from Extinction Rebellion, claimed that the Government’s ‘plan to decarbonise our homes fails on almost every measure’.

It said the £450million allocated to grants for heat pumps will help only 30,000 households a year, which is a ‘drop in the ocean’ compared with the 900,000 a year required by the Climate Change Committee by 2028.

A spokesperson stated that “Our ancestors fought an civil war to remove such oppression from these islands, and they sacrificed their lives in order to win the rights & freedoms we now enjoy. 

‘Today, it’s our turn, our responsibility to fight against tyranny. That we owe our ancestors and our fellow citizens as well as those who follow us in the great chain that is life, is our responsibility. 

A High Court judge extended Tuesday an injunction to stop Insulate Britain protestors from blocking roads in London.

London’s transport network was granted the order earlier this month, aimed at preventing the actvists obstructing cars on some of the capital’s busiest roads.

Three additional injunctions were issued to National Highways by the protest group, prohibiting demonstrations on the M25, Port of Dover, and major roads around London.

During Tuesday’s hearing, Insulate Britain members were given the chance to address the court.

Despite the fact that their campaign was temporarily halted, they repeatedly disregarded the injunctions and burned copies of papers.

A court order violation can result in a contempt charge. This could lead to a two-year sentence in prison and an unlimited fine.

On Tuesday, Mr Justice Lavender, the judge, stated that the injunction had been extended until a trial was held in the case, or until a further court order is issued, or until April 8, next year. 

Dr Diana Warner, of the group, said that National Highways should reduce motorway speeds limits to as low at 10 mph when Insulate Britain protests on an arterial.
