This morning at Lloyd's of London's HQ (1 Lyme Street, London, UK), an activist from Insurance Rebellion was arrested after throwing a bucket of green paint over the front of the building. Insurance Rebellion say they carried out this escalation in their campaign to "highlight the shameless greenwashing being carried out by Lloyd's of London, who continue to insure fossil fuel projects across the world."
