Grant Shapps – 2021 Comments on M25 Climate Protesters

The comments made by Grant Shapps, the Secretary of State for Transport, on 22 September 2021.

We will not let these demonstrators wreak havoc on our roads, disrupt thousands of people’s journeys and put lives in danger. Not only are they creating more traffic and pollution, they are alienating the public from their own cause.

Today, we’re taking action, bringing in further measures to stop those taking part in these self-defeating protests, while we continue the work we’re already carrying out to clean up our air and reach net zero.
