Climate Protesters Block London Stock Exchange

Stock exchange

London: Environmental activist group Extinction Rebellion blocked the entrance to the London Stock Exchange on Thursday as climate change protests continued in the British capital.

The group said it was “hitting the financial industry” to “demand they tell the truth about the devastating impact the industry has on our planet”, according to a tweet announcing the action on its official Twitter account. In another tweet, the group revealed that other activists had climbed onto a train in London’s Canary Wharf station for the second time in a week, reports CNN. At least four protesters on top of the train held signs that read “don’t jail the canaries” and “business as usual = death”. Last week, three Extinction Rebellion activists were arrested at the same station after two glued themselves to the top of a train, and a third glued himself to the side. (IANS)
