J18 poster about the protest at the london financial district

J18: The Carnival Against Capitalism poster

by Edd Baldry Author

In London and in cities around the globe, twelve thousand festive, masked people stormed the city’s financial district on June 18, 1999 to protest the impacts of global capitalism on humans and the environment, the first of a series of huge anti-capitalist protests worldwide that year. A fire hydrant was set off to symbolize the freeing of the Walbrook River. The Lower Entrance to the LIFFE building was bricked up before another group ran in and smashed up the reception area before trying to gain access to the trading floor. The rest of the day was spent running the cops around in circles before ending peacefully in Trafalgar Square.
