Rev Billy takes HSBC by Surprise

By Amarjeet Kaur, 8 August 2013

Take a look at this video of Rev Billy when he came to London with his Stop Shopping Choir and protested inside a London branch of HSBC. The protest was inspired by information WDM had gathered on how the bank has been funding climate change, including projects such as the Cerrej¤în mine in Colombia, which is the largest open pit coal mine in Latin America. The video shows protesters preparing for the stunt in a nearby park and then later on entering the bank to carry out the performance based around endangered species that have been negatively impacted by climate change.  



We want HSBC to be more transparent on how it is contributing to climate change and report the amount of emissions that they are helping to finance across the globe. We have created a short form that you can use to email HSBC boss Brian Robertson and ask him to pledge that the bank will report on the global emissions that they are investing in. Just click here to access the form and take action.
