While environmental activists are terrorizing works of art around the world, this time in the UK, two female environmental activists committed a jam and soup attack on a statue of Queen Victoria.

According to foreign media such as the BBC on the 4th (local time), the incident occurred at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery in Glasgow, Scotland, on the morning of the 3rd.

Local police arrested two people, a woman in her 20s and a woman in her 30s, who protested at Kelvingrove Art Gallery.

In a video posted on social networking service (SNS), one woman was seen spray-painting profanity on the pedestal where the bust was placed, while another woman was seen pouring jam and soup on the bust of Queen Victoria.

The reason they do this is to highlight and protest against increasing food insecurity, the media said. After vandalizing the bust, they said, “We refuse to return to the Victorian era. “Diseases caused by starvation (which were popular during the Victorian era) are on the rise again,” he exclaimed.

The group to which these women belong also raised their voice on social media, saying, “The damage to the bust is negligible compared to the damage that will be done to our community,” and that they will continue this behavior until the food policy changes they demand are accepted.

On the 19th of last month, members of this group entered the British Royal Palace’s Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh, Scotland, occupied a restaurant, and performed a performance of eating food.

Immediately after this protest, Kelvingrove Art Gallery closed temporarily but reopened. However, the exhibition room where the bust was located is under control and officials are assessing the extent of the damage.

The two environmental activists who damaged the bust were indicted on charges of vandalism, but were released after promising to appear in court at a later date.

Meanwhile, incidents of terrorist attacks on works of art are occurring one after another around the world as a means of promoting their claims. Last month, Leonardo da Vinci’s ‘Mona Lisa’, displayed at the Louvre Museum in Paris, was also subjected to a soup attack by environmental activists.
