Northampton 05/02/2022


You might notice that your Northampton Town Centre branches of Barclays have had a spruce up, courtesy of Extinction Rebellion Northampton.

Why, you ask? We’ve joined groups across the UK in a month of action to expose the destruction that Barclays cause through their financial investments. 

Barclays are the BIGGEST FOSSIL FUEL FUNDERS in Europe. Their investments into fossil fuels have increased year-on-year and are now twice as high as they were pre-pandemic.

Fossil fuels are the leading cause of climate change - the largest threat to existence humanity has ever faced. If we continue to allow these investments, our children will die.

It’s time to switch banks. We’re #BetterWithoutBarclays
