VIDEO: Terrorists Desecrate Historic Structure

(TheRedAlertNews.com) – In a new abomination committed by far-left terrorists, two individuals associated with environmental activism have been apprehended after they vandalized the iconic prehistoric Stonehenge structure in the UK with orange paint.

This was confirmed both by the activists’ group and local law enforcement authorities, USA Today informs in a report.

In an official release, Wiltshire Police disclosed that the arrests were made “following an incident at Stonehenge” which occurred on Wednesday afternoon.

“At around noon, we responded to a report that orange paint had been sprayed on some of the stones by two suspects. Officers attended the scene and arrested two people on suspicion of damaging the ancient monument,” the police added.

The group taking responsibility for this act is known as Just Stop Oil, which aligns itself with environmental activism.

They circulated a video capturing the incident on the social media platform X, and described their motivation by stating:

“2 people took action the day before Summer Solstice, demanding the incoming government sign up to a legally binding treaty to phase out fossil fuels by 2030.”

This statement underscores their drastic measures to attract attention to their environmental cause, notes the report by the leftist news outlet.

Further communications from Just Stop Oil, through a press release on their website, indicated a strategic timing for their protest.

“Today’s action has come days after the Labour party’s manifesto has recommitted them to stopping all future licenses for new oil and gas, should they form the next government,” the release said.

This suggests that the activists are leveraging recent political developments to highlight their demands for more sustainable energy policies, according to the report.

The activists involved were identified by Just Stop Oil as a 21-year-old student from Oxford and a 73-year-old man from Birmingham, showcasing a diverse demographic involvement in the environmental activism scene.

The incident led to immediate repercussions for Stonehenge itself, with the site’s management expressing their concerns on X.

“Orange powdered paint has been thrown at a number of the stones at Stonehenge. Obviously, this is extremely upsetting and our curators are investigating the extent of the damage. More updates to follow but the site remains open,” the site’s management said in a statement.

In a terse response to the protest, British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak voiced his disapproval on X by stating, “Just Stop Oil are a disgrace.”

His comment reflects the official condemnation of the act, particularly given the historical and cultural significance of Stonehenge.
