1st October 2023: Barclays protest (North-East HXR)

Health for XR North-East joined Tyneside XR in a corpse action outside Barclays to communicate the significant impacts on health of ongoing fossil fuel funding. Since the Paris climate agreement in 2015, where the world agreed to avert the worst effects of climate breakdown, the world’s top banks have poured trillions into fossil fuel financing. Barclays is one of the worst – between 2016 and 2022 it was the top European funder of fossil fuels, and so responsible for millions of climate related deaths.
