They write

On Sunday 19th July, Seed The Future planted thousands of hemp seeds, an act that is technically illegal under current law, to show the UK government one of the best possible solutions for this country to create jobs, boost the economy, produce plant-based biodegradable products, and ignite innovation and cutting edge research and development, while also tackling climate change and offering greener solutions to all industries. These are solutions that can help the government keep to its Carbon Zero by 2050 promise. With only one caution for position of a hemp plant these protests were peaceful, however there were a number of plants seized by the police and taken off to be destroyed, rather than being utilised for their many purposes.
