Climate activist Greta Thunberg joined a protest in opposition to UK authorities plans for brand new oil and fuel licences exterior the venue the place UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak gave a speech on international coverage.

The 20-year-old Swede was amongst demonstrators from Fossil Free London objecting to plans for recent drilling at Rosebank off the Scottish coast.

She joined a gaggle of round 50 activists for the protest which passed off as attendees arrived for the Lord Mayor’s Banquet at London’s Guildhall.

The activists – who banged pots, pans and drums – had been cut up into two teams and round 20 law enforcement officials shaped a line to stop them coming into the venue.

Protesters carried banners saying “Rosebank will kill us” and “Stop Rosebank”, and at one level sang “Oh Rishi is trying to kill us” to the tune of We Wish You A Merry Christmas.

Fossil Free London spokesperson Joanna Warrington stated: “Sunak and his climate-wrecking Government are promoting the UK public a harmful pipe dream.

“They are falsely promising energy security through the expansion of new oil and gas, that if pursued would only spell utter climate disaster, and an insecure, warming world for all of us that live within it.”

“Whilst Sunak dines with the Lord Mayor, bankers and business leaders at the heart of obscene wealth in this country; we are outside with a clear message.”

“We want a liveable future; and secure, affordable, renewable energy for all.”

In August, the Prime Minister stated he desires to “max out” the UK’s remaining oil and fuel reserves as he introduced plans for brand new drilling at Rosebank and different North Sea oil fields.
