Anti-oil campaigners in the UK have a new protest tactic: Gluing themselves to famous works of art

Of course the whole point of these stunts is to garner media attention and that seems to be working out for this group so far. Here’s there spokesperson Emma Brown. As you’ll see, people try reasoning with her, pointing out for instance that people can freeze to death if there’s not enough energy for heating in the winter, but she doesn’t care. It’s easy to be a campaigner when you’re not going to be held responsible for any of the outcomes that would stem from your own recommendations.

Finally, a good suggestion from Iowahawk on possible future protest action.

Notice they are not STUPID enough to glue themselves to the painting, only the frame.
