Protesters from the environmental group Extinction Rebellion staged a demonstration at the London Stock Exchange building on Thursday on the final day of protests that have caused mass disruption in the British capital.
At London Stock Exchange’s headquarters, six protesters dressed in black suits and red ties blocked the revolving doors of the building.
“Extinction Rebellion to focus on the financial industry today,” the group said in a statement.
The “aim is to demand the finance industry tells the truth about the climate industry and the devastating impact the industry has on our planet.”
The group advocates non-violent civil disobedience to force governments to reduce carbon emissions and avert what it says is a global climate crisis that will bring starvation, floods, wildfires and social collapse.
