Activists from Extinction Rebellion have caused a scene at the Labour Party headquarters today by pouring fake oil over the premises, and scaling the building.
Campaigners have urged a future Labour government to cancel new fossil fuel licences, fund the transition to renewables and end the Drax sponsorship.
Smoke cannons have been let off at the Victoria Street building in London, with protestors standing on the canopy holding banners which say: “Labour: cut the ties to fossil fuels.”
While some of the eco-mob have made it to the top of the building, others are sitting at the entrance with banners after pouring black ‘fake’ oil over the steps.
THIS IS A BREAKING STORY. MORE TO COME.
