Many news outlets have already reported this as a Just Stop Oil action, but JSO has not taken credit. Money Rebellion immediately took credit with this via Twitter, “We just disrupted the AIG Women's Open. AIG Insurance is one of the biggest insurers of oil & gas & have refused to stop funding the East African Crude Oil Pipeline. Insurers need to Insure Our Future not Climate Breakdown”
Money Rebellion, an affinity group of Extinction Rebellion, made waves previously when they came out with a lot of highly controversial money related protests. Then recently in Amsterdam, they’ve been executing a Hot ING Summer Tour of actions where they’ve locked down at banks.
Jane Clarke, of Money Rebellion, said this, “AIG is insuring climate breakdown by enabling deadly fossil fuel projects to pump out more and more greenhouse gasses. AIG knows the science and is happy to protect its profits by cutting off insurance for homeowners facing foods and fires, caused by climate change. The executives making these decisions are climate criminals. Instead of sponsoring golf events to clean their image, they must stop insuring all new fossil fuel projects now.”

“What are our responsibilities at this time? Because of the fossil fuel industry, we are facing horrors of a magnitude never before experienced in our existence. Our government continues to lead us to the edge of no return. We must stand up and defend ourselves. No one else is going to do it. It must be us, if we want to live.
Our methods must be disruptive, and they must be nonviolent. Our actions are evidence-based, credible, and we have a plan. The only thing missing at this point in time is YOU!”
