Activists throw soup on Van Gogh's 'Sunflowers'

Supper time. Environmental activists from the Just Stop Oil movement carried out an action at the National Gallery in London on Friday. Two members of the collective threw tomato soup on Vincent Van Gogh’s masterpiece, “Sunflowers”, before sticking to the wall.

“Is art worth more than life? More than food? More than justice? The cost of living crisis and the climate crisis are led by oil and gas, denounces the collective on Twitter. With petrol prices soaring, millions of British families will not be able to afford to heat a can of soup this winter. »

“Only civil resistance can get us out of this crisis – it’s time to stand up and stand up for what is right,” he added. According to press images published by the movement, which calls for the immediate halt of any new oil or gas project, two activists threw the contents of two cans of soup on the work, the price of which is estimated at more than of $84 million.
