Play was brought to a halt during Everton and Newcastles Premier League match on Thursday after a protestor tied themselves to a goalpost.

An individual entered the field shortly after the half-time interval at Goodison Park and fastened themselves to the woodwork, forcing an intervention from staff in order to remove him.

The individual was sporting a shirt for the protest group Just Stop Oil, and subsequently saw their thoughts laid out in a pre-prepared statement posted to social media.

In a thread posted to Just Stop Oils social media, the individual who tied themselves to the post laid out their reason for doing so, stating: “Its 2022 and its time to look up, time to step up and not stand by. Its time to act like its an emergency.”

“Report after report is telling me that my future is going to be dire, and my government is telling me not to worry and pay into a pension.

“But we have a choice. We can choose to highlight that our climate is breaking down, we can choose to resist this government that is betraying us, we can choose to step up and not stand by.”

This is the second time this week that a protestor has been involved in a match on behalf of Just Stop Oil.

An individual attempted to glue themselves to the posts during Liverpools win over Arsenal on Wednesday.
