During rush hour today (Wednesday) traffic on the M25 was brought to a standstill for a second time this week by people from Insulate Britain, a new group demanding that the government gets on with the job of insulating Britain’s homes, according to The Buckingham Advertiser
Eighty Nine people from Insulate Britain – which has members from all over the country – blocked roundabouts and a carriageway on the M25 early this morning.
Activists are blocking roundabouts and the carriageway at junction 23 for South Mimms in Hertfordshire and junction 25 for Cheshunt. There are also reports of blockages at junction 10 for Wisley in Surrey and 1b for Dartford in Kent.
In a statement Insulate Britain said: “We have to act quickly. What we do in the next three to four years, I believe, will determine the future of humanity.”
On Monday, police arrested 18 people in connection with the protest that took place near junction 20 (Hemel Hempstead) of the M25.
The official Insulate Britain Twitter account (@InsulateLove) posted today at 8:49 AM “You’re angry. So are we. You’re afraid for your job. So are we.”
“You feel powerless. So did we. But sitting in the road makes @BorisJohnson sit up & take notice
So we’re staying, until @10DowningStreet #getonwiththejob
