XR target Lloyd's of London

Extinction Rebellion (XR) protests closed all the entrances to Lloyd’s of London’s building in the City of London using superglue and chains on Tuesday.

Dropping banners reading “Lloyd’s insure climate breakdown” and “End Fossil Fuels Now” the initial protester were joined by ‘Dirty Scrubbers, Tea Ladies, CorpRats and Orchestrated Discontent’.

XR alleges that Lloyd’s insures 40 per cent of the world’s energy, including some of the world’s worst fossil fuel projects such as coal mines, tar sands pipelines, and new oil & gas exploration.

No arrests were made during the action.
