Climate change protesters target London's financial center

Targeting city’s financial heart, Extinction Rebellion protesters continued their protests on Friday in London.

Hundreds of protesters gathered midday in front of the Bank of England to protest against the government for a system change for a better future for the planet.

A group of drummers and protesters marched through the City of London, the city’s financial hub where dozens of financial institutions are located.

Two protesters painted the sign and the entrance of Standard Chartered building after climbing its front gate. Police formed a cordon to block protesters from entering the building.

The group continued to march through the district and reached the Museum of London, where two demonstrators glued themselves to the windows of a building.

The organization's “Impossible Rebellion” protest demands an end to investment in the fossil fuels driving climate change.
