A priest from Macclesfield was among those arrested during the Just Stop Oil slow march that disrupted traffic in London on Monday.
Rev Bill White was one of 34 people marching through Ealing, Hammersmith, Elephant and Castle, Bayswater, and Victoria before police dissolved the protest.
The 68-year-old priest and grandfather said he had taken to the roads to demand “no new oil, gas or coal”.
“It’s not fair that others are suffering and dying, because of our addiction to burning oil,” he said.
“Our disgraced government can’t get this right without our help. They hear the message of the oil industry loud and clear, now they need to hear the voices of ordinary people, your voice,” he continued.
The group has completed up to seven marches a day, six days a week since 24th April.
A Monthly Gift Of $11 Makes A World Of Difference
In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.
Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.
For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.
Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
