G8 summit: campaigners plan ‘creative civil disobedience’ in Canary Wharf

Anti-cuts campaigners are planning to team up with environmentalists to stage a high-profile series of protests in the heart of London’s business district during this month’s G8 summit.

The groups are coming together under the banner “They Owe Us” and have promised to stage “creative civil disobedience” in Canary Wharf.

The summit is taking place in Northern Ireland and will see the world’s most powerful political leaders come together at Lough Erne resort near Enniskillen.

Protesters say several different groups have come together for the first time for a day of protests and civil disobedience to draw attention to the link between the economic crisis and climate change.
