For the record – that isn’t oil, it’s molasses. A pain to clean up, but it could be worse.
However, it is still technically vandalism. Which is a crime.
I think that shows the problem with the Extinction Rebellion – this is vandalism. Earlier in the year, the group temporarily halted public transport in Wellington.
Stuff like this is counterproductive to their cause. I can see why they do it – what they do is nothing compared to how oil companies affect the environment. Yet at the same time, this interferes and hampers daily life.
I see why they do it. But the Extinction Rebellion must understand how this does not help them.
