Bank of England return Venezuela's Gold

Bank of England, London. Thu 7 Feb 2019



 A protester in a Trump mask holds up two 'gold bars', calling for the Bank of England to return the $1.3 billion

 of Venezuelan gold (31 tonnes) it holds to the Venezuelan government.

 Venezuela is suffering from both the drop in world oil prices and US-led sanctions against it.

 The US wants to control the Venezuelan oil industry

 The protest was organised by the Venezuela Solidarity Campaign

 

 The protesters were facing the main door of the Bank of England
