Just Stop Oil target Taylor Swift's private jet in spray-paint protest at Stansted ...

 

Just Stop Oil protesters painted multiple private jets on the airfield they claim Taylor Swift’s jet landed at just a few hours before.

 

The British environmental activist group is mainly focused on the issue of man-made climate change. While it isn’t known who owns the jets targeted, according to a press release from the group, Swift’s jet is currently stationed at London Stansted Airport.

The pop superstar is bringing her record-breaking Eras Tour to London. She is expected to perform in the city from June 21 to 23. Newsweek emailed Swift’s publicist for comment on Thursday.

Just Stop Oil shared the news on X, formerly Twitter, writing: “Jennifer and Cole cut the fence into the private airfield at Stansted where @taylorswift13’s jet is parked, demanding an emergency treaty to end fossil fuels by 2030.”

The accompanying video shows two women cutting fencing wire at the airfield site. Then, the clip shows the activists spraying two different jets with orange paint.

Another post from the group on X reads: “80% of the population have never taken a flight. Just 1% of people cause 50% of global aviation emissions. Private jet users are responsible for up to 14x as much carbon emissions compared with a commercial flight.”

The two activists have said they want the U.K. government to commit to cooperating with other countries to develop an equitable plan to halt the “extraction and burning of oil, gas and coal by 2030.”

In a statement online, one of the protesters said: “We’re living in two worlds: one where billionaires live in luxury, able to fly in private jets away from the other, where unlivable conditions are being imposed on countless millions.

Meanwhile, this system that is allowing extreme wealth to be accrued by a few, to the detriment of everyone else, is destroying the conditions necessary to support human life in a rapidly accelerating never-ending ‘cruel summer.’ Billionaires are not untouchable, climate breakdown will affect every single one of us.”

The two women have since been arrested, with Essex Police sharing a statement about the incident.

“Officers have responded quickly and made two arrests following reports of people gaining access to a private area of an airfield at Stansted Airport,” the statement reads. “We were called shortly before 5.10 a.m. today (Thursday 20 June). It was reported two people had gained access to an area well away from the runway and main passenger terminal, before causing damage to two aircraft.

“Officers were on the scene within minutes and detained two people. The airport and flights are operating as normal. A 22-year-old woman from Brighton, and a 28-year-old woman from Dumbarton, have been arrested on suspicion of criminal damage and interference with the use or operation of national infrastructure.”
