Protesters have estimated that around 100 people gathered outside of HSBC’s Birmingham offices to take action against what they say is the bank’s “complicity in climate change, war and military action.”

Huda Ammori, a campaigns officer at Palestine Solidarity Campaign told the Guardian that the protest was organised by a raft of anti-war, pro-Palestinian rights and environmental groups. They include Palestine Solidarity Campaign, War on Want, 350.org, BankTrack, the National Committee of Bangladesh UK and Brazilian Women Against Fascism.

Ammori says:

“The groups have vowed to continue campaigning together until HSBC divests fully from the fossil fuel industry and all companies providing military equipment used by Israel and in conflicts across the world.”
