London, UK. 14 October, 2019. Climate activists from Extinction Rebellion block roads around the Bank of England on the eighth day of International Rebellion protests across London. They targeted financial institutions throughout the day, occupying the busy junction in front of the Bank of England from early morning until early evening, to highlight 'the far greater disruption faced by those living in the environments systematically being destroyed by UK backed companies', particularly in the Global South. Theatrical mock trials were staged, of the UK’s financial sector for the crime of ecocide and of the Government for ‘criminal negligence’ in having permitted it.
