BADASS: Vivienne Westwood Rides Tank Up To David Cameron’s House, Declares War On Fracking
Holy shit, Dame Vivienne Westwood is still punk as fuck. The 74 year-old fashion designer rode the hell up to David Cameron’s house, in a white tank, to declare war on fracking. I am going to need a framed picture of this to hang above my mantle, as it is my new favorite image of all time. In fact, I think it’s my new patronus.
“Cameron accuses foreign leaders such as President Gaddafi and President Assad of supposedly using chemicals on their own people as a justification for regime change. But he is doing precisely that here in Britain by forcing toxic, life-threatening fracking chemicals on his own people against the advice of his own chief scientist. It’s time for regime change in Britain. Cameron plans to force householders to surrender their land and endure fracking underneath their homes. Britons no longer have any choice but to fight back.”
The protest was in response to the government announcing that it would be doling out fracking licenses in 27 locations throughout England.
