Londoners are fighting back against Just Stop Oil eco clowns who took to the streets of the capital once again this morning, holding up rush hour traffic and infuriating members of the public as they slow marched on main roads.
Climate activists from the eco mob took to roads in Hammersmith, Chelsea and Westminster, holding signs that ‘we won’t die quietly’ and ‘new oil equals murder’.
One infuriated cyclist slammed three Met Police officers standing by during the slow march, telling officers to ‘arrest them [the protesters], they’re the ones breaking the law’.
Following the confrontation with the cops, the bemused cyclist continued his journey past the activists, pointing at them again, shouting ‘you should be stopping them, it’s against the law.’
Seconds later, a woman trying to get to hospital pleaded with the group of six to let her pass.
In a separate march on the Pall Mall, a group of scaffolders were seen shoving a group of three protesters out of the way to allow HGVs to pass through.
One of the workers was seen tackling an activist who refused to budge from the road and forced him onto a bonnet of a van, before ripping away his sign.

The group of protesters then returned to the road, with cars becoming increasingly frustrated honking their horns as the group started to slow march once again.
The woman, who was urgently trying to see someone in hospital, ended up driving around the group of activists, who told her to drive ‘slowly’ as she drove off.
A taxi driver is also seen pleading with the group telling them they are creating ‘traffic’.
Officers from the Metropolitan Police force are also dealing with a small number of protesters walking slowly along Pall Mall and the Kings Road in Chelsea.
The cops issued a Section 12 condition in all three areas which ordered the eco-zealots to move onto the pavement.
In response to this morning’s action, the group Tweeted: ‘No one likes being disrupted, but also no one likes their government actively planning genocide.’
Earlier this week, footage emerged of a furious mother pleading with protesters: ‘I need to get my kids to school’ as around 75 eco activists took the capital’s streets.
‘Four of them I’ve just left on the f***ing bus,’ she said. ‘Four of them, and one’s four months. You lot are taking the p***.’
A taxi driver in Hammersmith also pleaded with the group of activists who held signs that read ‘no new oil’

Met Police officers – who politely told Pheobe Plummer she would have to leave her coffee – were filmed by activists as they arrested her
She added: ‘You can [for] 30 seconds let the bus go past. That’s all I’m asking, for 30 seconds. This is ridiculous.’
But undeterred activists, who are now in their seventh week of slow-march protests in London, refused to get out of the way – prompting drivers to beep their horns.
Footage released today from earlier this week, showed another white van driver trying to nudge the activists out the way.
One the protesters told angry commuters: ‘I really don’t want to be here but I have literally spent the last ten years of my life fighting against the climate crisis.
‘Do you think I like being shouted out? Do you think I like this humiliation? We have tried everything and nothing is working. Thousands of people are dying and we could do something about it but we are not.’
Yesterday, a prominent figure of the group, which have been causing havoc on London’s streets since April 24, was arrested for breaking her bail conditions.
Phoebe Plummer, in her early twenties, rose to prominence after throwing paint on Van Gough’s sunflowers, was arrested in an upmarket café in Islington as she was caught taking part in a slow march yesterday morning.
Met officers told the University of Manchester graduate she had to leave her coffee and could not wait for her hash browns as she was arrested. Her friends had to cover her bill as she was taken away.
Plummer told the camera that her arrest was a ‘completely draconian overreach of power.’
The Labour Party’s energy policy is being written by eco-zealots from Just Stop Oil, Rishi Sunak claimed last night
Labour has accepted £1.5million from Just Stop Oil funder Dale Vince (pictured) over several years, and now wants to ban future North Sea oil and gas drilling
She continued: ‘I received bail conditions two days ago not to protest on any road in the UK.
‘I still decided to come out and march today because marching has always been part of our democratic process and it is one of our human rights that we should be able to protest.’
At one point, eight officers can be seen inside or waiting outside the café.
It comes as the Prime Minister Rishi Sunak accused the Labour Party of having its new energy policy, which pledges to ban future North Sea oil and gas drilling, written by eco-zealots from Just Stop Oil.
Over the years Labour has accepted £1.5 million from Just Stop Oil funder Dale Vince.
Mr Sunak accused Sir Keir of putting ideology ahead of jobs and energy security – and said the only people who stood to benefit from his plan were ‘dictators and autocrats like Vladimir Putin’.
