Anti-G8 Protests Target Canary Wharf

Barclays Canary Wharf

Activists plan a show of 'civil disobedience' in the heart of London's Canary Wharf financial district on Friday to protest against capitalism ahead of next week's G8 summit which Britain is hosting.

Reuters reports that environmentalists, poverty campaigners and opponents of the British government's austerity measures will join under the banner 'They Owe Us' in a demonstration at Canary Wharf, home to major firms such as Barclays and JP Morgan, as well as other financial powerhouses.

'The businesses and banks of Canary Wharf are deciding on, funding and profiting from projects that created the economic crisis and the climate crisis', Emma Wilding, from They Owe Us, said in a statement.
