‘Don’t detain me for too long!’ Isolate the United Kingdom Fearing imprisonment, a protester bursts into tears.

A tearful Insulate Britain protester pleaded with the police not to put her to prison “for long” like her incarcerated companion.

The anonymous activist, who is the spouse of one of the nine Insulate Britain activists imprisoned this week, dubbed the “Highway 9,” cried as she told supporters in central London on Saturday that she is “scared” her relationship will end if she is sentenced to prison.

The activist asked with the government to spare her from any severe treatment in the judicial system, speaking to thousands of insulation activists who had brought central London to a halt in protest of the arrests.

“Some of the speakers today have declared they are not afraid, and I admire that,” she said.

Unlike previous activists, though, the protester expressed concern that law enforcement would “take my home.”

“I’m frightened you’ll take me away from my friends, family, and partner,” she continued.

“Most importantly, I’m terrified my relationship with her will not survive a long prison sentence,” the campaigner sobbed.

“So, if you sentence me to prison, I hope you don’t put me away for a long time,” she said.

Despite urgent pleas to keep her out of prison, the activist stated that she is more terrified of inaction on climate change.

“I am more terrified of inaction on the weight of ecological and climate calamity that is pressing down on all of us at a breakneck pace right now,” she remarked.

The group’s nine members were sentenced to prison at the High Court in London on Tuesday after admitting to breaking an injunction by participating in a roadblock at M25 junction 25 on October 8.

All four defendants were sentenced to four months in prison: Ben Buse, 36, Roman Paluch-Machnik, 28, Oliver Rock, 41, Emma Smart, 44, Tim Speers, 36, and James Thomas, 47.

Ana Heyatawin, 58, and Louis McKechnie, 20, were both sentenced to three months in prison. It’s unknown who of the nine people detained this week is the sobbing protester’s partner.

The judge condemned the following after the sentencing: “The defendants, or at least some of them, appear to want to be martyrs for their cause, and the media blitz around the trial seems to support this notion. We must, however, act impartially and proportionally.” “Brinkwire Summary News” is an acronym for “Isolate Britain.”
