LONDON (Reuters) – Climate activists in London splatter black dye on the front of the Bank of England on Thursday as part of a protest, a Reuters photographer at the scene said. Activists, some disguised as buffoons, threw the dye at the imposing neoclassical building, known as “The Old Lady of Threadneedle Street,” as they demonstrated against financial sector support for what they say is a climate catastrophe. “This bank is killing us,” read a banner held by a protester. “No more fossil fuels,” read another. “Today’s action is part of a wave of XR Money Rebellion stocks designed to expose the role of banks in the climate and ecological crisis,” Extinction Rebellion said. Two people were arrested by the police. “It is not right that the Bank of England can distribute money to companies that are destroying our planet while millions face the destruction of their future because of their actions,” said 22-year-old activist Amelia Halls.
