Environmental activists sprayed Stonehenge with orange paint

Videos show activists spraying paint on the famous Stone Age structure Stonehenge. According to the protest group, rainwater will wash away the paint.

In Great Britain, climate protesters sprayed the Stonehenge monument with an orange substance. The Just Stop Oil group posted a video on the X platform (formerly Twitter) on Wednesday showing two people running towards the stone circle and spraying paint. Police arrested two suspects.

The protest group wrote that it is calling on the next British government to sign a binding treaty to phase out fossil fuels by 2030. In the background of the video, people can be heard shouting for the protesters to stop. Some are also trying to stop the two.

“Two people arrested after the Stonehenge incident”

Wiltshire Police said: “We have arrested two people following an incident at Stonehenge this afternoon.” They are suspected of damaging the memorial. The investigation was ongoing.

The stone circle of Stonehenge is one of the most famous landmarks in Great Britain. The stones align precisely with the position of the sun at the summer and winter solstices. It is believed that these events have been celebrated there for thousands of years. The summer solstice will be celebrated there on Thursday.
