Extinction Rebellion disrupt Wandsworth Conservative party local election campaign launch at multi-million-pound car show room – londonnewsonline.co.uk
Climate crisis campaigners disrupted a government minister’s speech as he launched a Tory election campaign amid cars costing up to £1.98million.
Wandsworth Conservatives held their Gala Campaign Launch at a luxury car showroom, Joe Macari Performance Cars in Merton, where a McLaren P1 GTR could set you back the price of 20 black cabs or 200,000 boxes of washing powder.
It does on average about 20 miles to the gallon.
Education secretary Nadhim Sahawi was shocked to have the start of his speech there yesterday disrupted by “suprise guests” Extinction Rebellion Wandsworth, who dropped a banner bearing the words “No Planet B” from a balcony.
The two peaceful protesters were removed with what XR dubbed “totally unnecessary and unwarranted violence”.
