Protest over tar sands at Canadian Embassy

CLIMATE PROTESTORS SCALE CANADIAN EMBASSY AND DEFACE FLAG

At 8am this morning three climate activists scaled the entrance to the Canadian High Commission in Grosvenor Square, cutting loose the Canadian flag. They will then dunk the flag into crude oil while unfurling a banner reading “Shut Down the Tar Sands”. The activists have secured themselves upon the building’s front balcony with one protestor super-glued to the window such that it cannot be opened. This is the second action in London on Tar Sands in two days, and is part of a growing international campaign.
