In London, environmental activists from the Just Stop Oil group painted the windows of a luxury car showroom. The activists wanted to ask the government to stop issuing licenses for combustion engines.
A few days ago, activists engaged in such action. Two activists from the group threw tomato soup at a painting by Dutch artist Vincent van Gogh at the National Gallery in London on October 14. “What is more valuable, art or life?” said one of the women. The shape of the painting is said to be damaged during the process. Therefore, the women are accused of property damage.
Action against the sale took place on Wednesday morning, in Berkley Square and Bruton Street in the British capital, as part of a month of action by a group of anti-burn activists. Car dealerships selling luxury brands Ferrari, Bugatti and Bentley have been hit.
Police in London said that they have arrested two people involved in the act.
On October 23, there was a similar incident in the Barberini Museum of Potsdam, when activists from the “Last Generation” protest group scattered a painting by the French painter Claude Monet with mashed potatoes.
