May I refer this man to my previous post
Just Stop Oil sentences slammed as 'severe' in damning letter from UN chief
Is anyone else wondering what purpose the UN still serves? And how more woke they can possibly get?
The United Nations has condemned jail sentences handed to two Just Stop Oil protesters as "severe" in a letter to the Government.

Two activists who caused traffic gridlock at Dartford Crossing when they scaled the bridge and unfurled a banner must serve a total of five years after judges ruled their stunt had caused a public nuisance.

Morgan Trowland, 40, was sentenced to three years behind bars, and fellow activist Marcus Decker, 34, was sentenced to two after they used wires to climb the Queen Elizabeth II Bridge in October 2022.
I remember thinking at the time, 'At least they got sent down'. The justice system seems to pussy foot around these idiot climate protestors. It's rare enough for the coppers to actually nick them and bring them before the courts. As we saw in my last post, it's equally as rare for the courts to impose any kind of meaningful punishment

So I suppose in the history of dealing with disruptive climate muppets, these sentances actually were severe

That's not to say it's a bad thing though, more of a much needed breath of freash air
The official has warned the lengthy sentences could severely impact people's protected rights of freedom of expression and assembly
Climbing on a bridge, gluing yourself to the road, walking in front of traffic, causing criminal damage and climbing on trains is neither expression nor assembly. The rights of people to get to work on time or go about their general business on public roads far outweighs the rights of these deluded bellends to stop them

For a UN official to describe the disruption of society as expression and assembly, tells me all I need to know about him
Ian Fry, the UN Special Rapporteur on the promotion and protection of human rights in the context of climate change, sent the Government a letter in August outlining his fears stemming from the sentences.
That they have such a position (my emphasis) tells me all I need to know about the modern UN
In the letter, seen by the BBC, Mr Fry states the sentences handed to the activists were "significantly more severe than previous sentences imposed for this type of offending".
Yes, that's the point. The previous sentances, when imposed, did nothing to prevent belmtards scaling bridges. Tougher sentances were needed
Sentencing Judge Collery KC said he wanted to deter copycat actions, stating: “You have to be punished for the chaos you caused and to deter others from copying you.”

The judge ruled that the 40-hour closure the pair had caused affected “many tens of thousands" of people, some "very significantly”.
But Mr Fry received little by way of a reply from ministers after raising his concerns.
He told the BBC he is used to having his letter taken seriously and that recipients generally respond, but despite requesting a reply within 60 days from the UK Government, he has yet to receive one.
Heh! Oh dear. The big important man is not being taken seriously? Maybe he should try a more direct action, like lying in front of a bus
