I'm skipping forward in time slightly. This weekend I joined around 500 other protesters at Coryton Oil Refinery where we successfully blockaded the entrance, stopping over 50 oil tankers entering and leaving the site, essentially cutting off the oil supply to london for the day.
'oil is not only at the centre of the climate crisis, but also the modern day engine of the growth economy that is driving us to the brink of catastrophe'.
we were there at the source of the problem to place our bodies in the way of the relentless flow of oil. To say: no more. Places like Coryton need to be a thing of the past. By doing this we reclaim power over our lives and our future.
