Climate Thugs Cause ‘Irreparable Damage’ to Stonehenge with Orange Spray Paint Attack

Experts are warning that the ancient monuments at Stonehenge in England may be permanently damaged after they were vandalized by climate activists this week.

Climate thugs from the far-left “Just Stop Oil” activist group sprayed the moment with orange spray paint during an attack on Wednesday.

Leftists Rajan Naidu, 73, and Niamh Lynch, 21, ran up to the stones and attacked them.

Videos show members of the public trying to intervene but are unable to stop the stones from being sprayed.

Footage showed two people wearing white shirts with the Just Stop Oil slogan, approaching the stone circle with canisters and spraying orange powder paint.

English Heritage issued a statement saying there appeared to be “no visible damage” to Stonehenge.

However, an expert conducted a closer examination and revealed major concerns that the ancient monument may be “irreparably damaged.”

Tim Daw, a local farmer and historic property steward who used to volunteer at the site, warns that the paint appears to have harmed the lichen plant organism on the stones.

Daw carried out an experiment this morning by mixing cornflour and food dye to make the same paint the climate activists used,

He then applied it to a small piece of sarsen, which is the same stone as Stonehenge.

On the piece of sarsen, a series of little back dots are visible, which are the lichen.

During an appearance on BBC Breakfast, Daw described this as a “very, very rare plant organism that grows on rocks.”

He notes that it “takes hundreds of years to grow because there’s no nutrition.”

Daw then washed the bottom half of the stone before gently rubbing it – and noticed that the cornflour was in the stone’s pores.

He revealed that the paint was “displacing the lichen.”

Daw told the show that he was “worried” about the lichen on the monument due to the long-term impact on Stonehenge.

Regarding yesterday’s attack, Daw: “I was shocked and saddened. I couldn’t believe it.”

“Stonehenge is so precious, not just to me but to so many people.

“To do this act, which I think has worked against their cause, just seems pointless and damaging.”

It comes after  Harry Potter author JK Rowling mocked Just Stop Oil over the incident, claiming that the group is “funded by Big Oil.”

Just Stop Oil said of the attack yesterday:

“The orange cornflour we used will soon wash away with the rain, but the urgent need for effective government action to mitigate the catastrophic consequences of the climate and ecological crisis will not.”

Rowling reposted this on X, adding: “Public opinion’s definitely moving, mostly towards the conclusion that you’re funded by Big Oil.”

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak described it as a “disgraceful act of vandalism to one of the UK’s and the world’s oldest and most important monuments.”

In a reference to leftist green energy entrepreneur Dale Vince, a major donor to the socialist Labour Party, Sunak added:

“Just Stop Oil should be ashamed of their activists, and they and anyone associated with them, including a certain Labour Party donor, should issue a condemnation of this shameful act immediately.”
