After being barred from causing havoc on the M25, protesters are now blocking roadways at the Port of Dover ferry port. Insulate Britain campaigners were photographed near the port this morning, which is Europe’s busiest ferry port and vital for both hauliers and vacationers.
The environmental group verified that the A20 route in Kent has been closed at the Eastern Docks roundabout and near the Western Docks’ Union Street junction.
Insulate Britain’s representative added, “We are sorry for the disruption that we are causing. It seems to be the only way to keep the issue of insulation on the agenda and to draw attention to how poorly insulated homes are causing ill health, misery and early death for many thousands of people.”
“We are failing the country’s cold hungry families and the elderly and placing an enormous burden on the NHS.”
“Insulating our leaky homes is one of the most cost-effective ways to reduce carbon emissions and it has all these additional benefits – reducing fuel poverty, creating jobs, reducing the burden on the NHS and protecting people from overheating during future heat waves. It’s a no-brainer.”
“Boris just needs to get on with the job.”
A massive lines of lorries has now formed and Police are now on the scene making arrests.
One protester climbed to the top of a tanker that the activists had blocked.
He’s holding a sign that says, “Arrested four times because I’m mourning life on Earth.”
