Chubb Insurance - Climate Justice Memorial
Friday 29 October
Come and join our Newcastle climate memorial on #DefundClimateChaos Global day of action.
As people globally face the consequences of the climate crisis, we will come together to demand care and repair at Lloyd’s of London insurance company Chubb Insurance. Join us to bring to life the memories of every person harmed by the injustices of the climate crisis
We want to shed light on Lloyd’s of London's appalling environmental record, and the colonialist practices Lloyd’s wealth grew from. From the insurance of slave ships, to the insurance of climate-destroying projects that dispossess indigenous peoples of their land, Lloyd’s have blood on their hands.
We will be outside the offices of Chubb, one of Lloyd's of London's 'syndicates', who are also involved in the insurance of fossil fuel projects, such as the Adani coal mine. We will hear from campaigners opposing the opening of the West Cumbria coal mine, as well as from the Campaign to Protect Pont Valley, who will talk about resistance, loss, and what it means to live with a coal mine on their doorstep.
Through the memorial we will bring to life the memories of every person harmed by the injustices of the climate crisis. As people globally face extreme and destructive weather, we will come together to demand care and repair with them.
