The controversial group of climate activists said four protesters stuck to the passage, which appeared on the cover of the Beatles’ 1969 album.

Four protesters have been arrested after Just Stop Oil activists blocked traffic at the famous Abbey Road intersection in London.

The controversial climate activist group said four protesters were glued to the intersection, which had been featured on the cover of the Beatles’ 1969 Abbey Road album, shortly after 1 p.m. Sunday.

It drew the ire of motorists who honked their horns because they were unable to overtake the protesters.

Video footage posted on social media showed protesters, dressed in orange high-visibility jackets, holding a banner at the intersection that read Just Stop Oil.

Metropolitan Police said officers responded to the scene and four protesters were arrested for willful obstruction of the road.

They were detained at a central London police station, the force added.

Both Abbey Road carriageways were cleared at 2:40pm, according to the Met.

One of the protesters, Shaun Davies, 32, echoed the words of the late Beatle George Harrison, who said: “We’re now the results of our past actions, and in the future we’ll be the results of the actions we’re performing now,” reports Sky.

According to Sky, Mr Davies added: “Never have his words rang more true than they do today; so here we are, in his spirit, saying that what we do in the next three years will determine the future of humanity. Let’s not sleepwalk into the furnace; let’s face our fears and act with love and courage to save all the wonderful culture humankind has created.”

According to Sky, Protester Eben Lazarus, 22, from Brighton, said: “I’m a musician, I don’t want to be here disrupting the most iconic location associated with a band I admire and love. But unless we tackle the climate crisis, we will lose all that has been created, all that will be created, all that brings joy and comfort to millions.”

Just Stop Oil said Sunday was its 23rd day of civil unrest.

The group said it will continue to “peacefully resist the government’s plans to licence over 100 new oil and gas projects by 2025, and its failure to fulfil its promise to help people with their skyrocketing energy bills,” reports Sky.

Previous Just Stop Oil protests included activists scaling the Queen Elizabeth II Bridge 200ft above the Dartford Junction, which had to close for 36 hours and caused six-hour delays to much of the M25.

Two Just Stop Oil protesters also threw tomato soup on Van Gogh’s painting Sunflowers at the National Gallery in London.

On Sunday, the group praised activists in Germany who dumped mashed potatoes on Claude Monet’s Les Meules painting, which sold for $110 million in 2019.
