Drowning in Oil
28th July 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
On Thursday 28th July at 12PM we will be conducting a theatrical protest outside Barclays Bank on Cornmarket, highlighting the bank's record on providing more financing for fossil fuel projects than any other bank in Europe. A short, repeated performance will emphasise both the bank's levels of funding despite the warnings of experts, and the disastrous consequences of continued fossil fuel use. It will be accompanied by the Samba band and followed by a die-in at 1:30PM. Drowning in Oil T shirts will be in use.
Barclays last year poured more than £4bn into new fossil fuel projects alone. ln total, the Bank has spent more than £100 bn on financing fossil fuels since the Paris Agreement of 2015.
