A group of Greenpeace protestors, including Oscar-winning actress Emma Thompson and her sister Sophie, were prayed with manure by an angry farmer after they broke a court injunction in order to protest fracking on the farmer’s land (video below).
According to the Daily Mail, Emma and Sophie Thompson were filming a parody of ‘The Great British Bake Off’ for Greenpeace on a farmer’s land when the furious farmer drove over to the protestors on his tractor. The protestors reportedly snuck onto the land and climbed over a gate to set up on the land, which was to be used for fracking.
The actresses were filming a parody episode, titled “Frack Free Bake Off,” in order to “show the government that we will not allow fracking to scar our countryside and fuel yet more climate change.”
When the farmer spotted the group of protestors on his land, he drove over with his tractor in an attempt to drive the group away. As he drove around the protesters, he began spraying them with manure from the back of the tractor.
In a video of the incident, the protestors can be seen screaming at the farmer to stop, but he ignores their calls and continues circling around them.
After a few times driving around the group, the farmer drove off.
