Another set of Liberals went mad…

Two disturbed climate protesters threw soup over Vincent van Gogh’s “Sunflowers” in London’s National Gallery on Friday to protest fossil fuel extraction.

The group Just Stop Oil, which wants the British government to halt new oil and gas projects, said activists dumped two cans of tomato soup over the oil painting, one of the Dutch artist’s most iconic works. The two protesters also glued themselves to the gallery wall.

If you’re not aware, the painting’s estimated value is around $84.2 million. The National Gallery website stated that the painting was acquired by the gallery in 1924, and is one of the five versions on public displays across the world. The Dutch painter, who posthumously became one of the most famous and influential figures in the history of Western art, created seven such still-life paintings.

The suspects, which the whole incident captured on film, Phoebe Plummer, 21, from London, and Anna Holland, 20, from Newcastle dumped two cans of Heinz tomato soup all over the painting, which is protected by glass.

Many people couldn’t believe what they had witnessed.

The mad activist, Phoebe Plummer, said:

“What is worth more, art or life? Is it worth more than food? Worth more than justice? Are you more concerned about the protection of a painting or the protection of our planet and people?”

“The cost of living crisis is part of the cost of oil crisis. Fuel is unaffordable to millions of cold, hungry families. They can’t even afford to heat a tin of soup,” she added.

More details of the incident from The Gateway Pundit reports:

According to the London Metropolitan Police, specialists removed the two women from the wall and they have been taken into custody after being arrested for “criminal damage and aggravated trespass,” CNBC reported.

“A spokesperson for the National Gallery confirmed that there was no damage to the painting, which has an estimated value of £72.5 million ($80.99 million),” the outlet added.

Back in June, a pair of Green activists glued themselves on the frame of a Vincent Van Gogh painting in London.

The two people belong to the same group, Just Stop Oil.

The unhinged leftists told their gallery audience, “Sorry everyone, we didn’t want to do this.”

The young man who glued himself to the painting has already been arrested 20 times and spent six weeks in prison this year.

In May a climate activist dressed as an old lady threw a cake at the Mona Lisa in France.

A 36-year-old man dressed as an old lady was arrested on Sunday after reportedly trying to break the glass protecting the famous Mona Lisa painting before throwing a cake on its surface in an apparent climate-related protest.
