Alarming! Activists Throw Tomato Soup on Van Gogh Painting in London


“Environmental activists have thrown tomato soup over Vincent van Gogh’s famous painting Sunflowers at London’s National Gallery, causing minor damage to the frame.

The Just Stop Oil campaign group on Friday posted a video showing the two activists throwing two tins of soup over the painting, before gluing themselves to a wall.

“What is worth more, art or life?” one of the activists is heard saying. “Are you more concerned about the protection of a painting or the protection of our planet and people?”

Just Stop Oil has been holding protests for the last two weeks in the United Kingdom’s capital. In a statement, it said its activists threw two cans of Heinz Tomato soup over the painting to demand the UK government halt all new oil and gas projects.”
