Windows at Barclays London HQ broken by climate change activists

LONDON (UK) – The window panes of the London headquarters of Barclays were broken by climate change activists in a protest aimed at highlighting the financial sector’s role in fuelling the climate catastrophe.

The activists from the Extinction Rebellion group carried placards with slogans such as “Better Broken Windows than Broken Promises” and pasted the message “In Case of Climate Emergency Break Glass” on the front of the bank’s building.

The group’s move against Barclays in the Canary Wharf business district came after fellow activists last week splashed black dye on the facade of the Bank of England in the historical financial centre, the City of London.
