Londoners Hold Climate Protest as Temperatures Approach 40°C

HeadlineJul 19, 2022

In London, doctors and nurses with Extinction Rebellion on Monday placed stickers on the windows of JPMorgan’s offices reading “in case of medical climate emergency break glass.” The activists then carefully broke the glass panes in an act of nonviolent civil disobedience. In a statement, nurse Maggie Fay, who took part in the action, said, “The world is heating because of our use of fossil fuels and JP Morgan is funding this climate catastrophe. My code of conduct states that I must 'Act without delay if [I] believe that there is a risk to patient safety or public protection.' That danger is here and it is now.”
