A CLIMATE demonstrator sprayed orange paint over the front of the Westminster offices of the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) yesterday in a protest against the department’s ‘harmful’ policies on renewable energy.
There were also protests in Liverpool, York, Leeds and Hull against energy giant Drax Group on the day of their annual general meeting.
Parading with banners and loudhailers is one thing. Causing damage is another. Is it time to make protesters pay for repairs? Should they be made to clean it up themselves?
Feel free to comment on this or anything else on your mind.
