I'd guess Sainsbury policy would be to simply ignore an act like this.

How we’d have laughed if they’d disrupted you or your friends day. That would have been interesting.

Hard to reconcile that statement with the XR and BLM protests in the first (only?) country to enshrine carbon reduction targets into law, led by a liberal PM that's called for asylum amnesties in the past. Maybe the Malthusians race baiters need protesting about instead?
By the way, the RNLI volunteers ferried about 400 illegal migrants to these shores yesterday to support criminal gangs instead of going about their personal business and supporting their families during a pandemic. Maybe that's something to protest about too?

Or the Palestinian consulate to protest gay rights? Or any one of a hundred better reasons to protest than the middle class affectations of personal slights that XR and BLM see in the ether?
johnm wrote:@eltonioni Your third paragraph has much to commend it but I fear many people have concerns closer to home at the moment and it's pretty clear that Russia and China are immune to protest, so concerted UN action is needed and sadly there's no appetite at this point
