A line of masked protestors dressed in matching black suits glued themselves together and onto the building entrance to the City of London building, preventing anyone from entering and leaving.
Environmental activists glued themselves to the London Stock Exchange and climbed onto the roof of a train at Canary Wharf on the final day of protests aimed at forcing Britain to take action to avert what they cast as a global climate cataclysm.
Extinction Rebellion protesters targeted the financial industry today in a bid to unveil the "truth" about their roles in funding the climate and ecological crisis.
Lying on the ground outside Goldman, one activist held a placard saying "No jobs on a dead planet" while others chanted: "What do we want?"
Protesters glued themselves to the London Stock Exchange this morning as they shifted their focus from London landmarks to the capital's financial sector.
The chief executive of Friends of the Earth has said that he supports the Extinction Rebellion (XR) protests in London because people "have to do more than just signing petitions" to stop climate change.
More than 1,000 people were arrested as police tried to clear the sites, though only about 70 have been charged.
The protest came in the wake of the clearing of the main demonstration areas at Oxford Circus, Marble Arch, Waterloo Bridge, Parliament Square and Piccadilly Circus.
Extinction Rebellion thanked Londoners in a statement Wednesday, saying: "We know we have disrupted your lives". We do not do this lightly. "We haven't got to that point where the government says yes, please talk to us", Onley said as drivers stuck in the heart of London's bustling financial district furiously honked their horns.
XR also said to expect more actions "very soon", adding there will be a "closing ceremony" at Speakers' Corner in Hyde Park on Thursday at 5pm.
Police have made hundreds of arrests.
"Specialist units trained in protester removal were immediately deployed and have now safely removed those obstructing the DLR service".
A Transport for London spokesman said: "We are aware that there are demonstrations taking place across London which may cause disruption to travel".
A spokeswoman for the group said: "There's a public event which is what we are calling swarming, where at different locations in the City people will swarm into the roads and block the roads".
The activists plan protests outside other banks including Rothschild, Nomura, Deutsche Bank, Royal Bank of Canada and Rabobank, according to a protest planning document seen by Reuters.
