Just Stop Oil, a controversial environmental group renowned for its aggressive campaigns to curb the fossil fuel industry, watched its celebratory banquet turn sour this weekend when a fleet of orange balloons equipped with a loud alarm disrupted the proceedings.
The banquet, held in a private church, quickly descended into loud chaos. Members of a different group, apparently sharing the broader public’s disillusionment with the extreme tactics of Just Stop Oil, released large, bright orange balloons into the banquet hall.
The balloons were equipped with a high-decibel alarm, transforming the banquet into an unexpectedly noisy spectacle. Just Stop Oil members struggled to figure out how to end the droning racket resonating from the church’s ceiling.
Just Stop Oil is widely known for its direct action against oil companies, including sit-ins, blockades, and other disruptive activities. However, their activities have been criticized by many as counterproductive, alienating potential allies, and labeled as “ecoterrorism” by their fiercest critics.
Turnabout is fair play

I can’t even imagine the carbon footprint of such a large scale banquet. The horror.

Giving them some of their own medicine.
