Climate change activists targeted BlackRock, the world’s biggest asset manager, in London on Monday, demanding that the world’s major financial institutions stop funding what they describe as a looming environmental catastrophe.

Extinction Rebellion, which promotes revolt against established political, economic and social structures as a way to publicize its dramatic climate message, is in the middle of two weeks of civil disobedience in London.

Its activists thronged the financial heart of London on Monday, blocking streets around locations such as the Bank of England and BlackRock.

Activists glued themselves to the doors of BlackRock while others staged a mock dinner party with rolled-up banknotes on their plates, a Reuters reporter said.

“The City of London is a preeminent nexus of power in the global system that is killing our world,” said Carolina Rosa, spokesperson for Extinction Rebellion.

There was no immediate comment from BlackRock.

Extinction Rebellion wants non-violent civil disobedience to force governments to cut carbon emissions and avert a climate crisis it says will bring starvation and social collapse.

Critics say the group is proposing what amounts to the overthrow of capitalism without any clear idea of what would replace it, and that the world’s energy needs cannot be met without fossil fuels.

Police reported more than 1,300 arrests so far.

Trump says 'good things' are happening at China trade talks: 'Warmer feelings than in recent past'

Liu He, China’s vice premier, left, and Robert Lighthizer, U.S. trade representative, wave to members of the media before a meeting at the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative in Washington, D.C., U.S., on Friday, Oct. 11, 2019.

President Donald Trump struck an optimistic tone on the trade talks with China on Friday as the two countries try to end a 15-month-long trade war that is taking a toll on the global economy.

“Warmer feelings than in recent past, more like the Old Days,” Trump said in a tweet. “I will be meeting with the Vice Premier today. All would like to see something significant happen!”

Stocks hit their session highs following his tweet.

Trump’s meeting with Chinese Vice Premier Liu He is scheduled for 2:45 p.m. ET. The face-to-face meeting with the head of the Chinese trade delegation is also seen as a positive sign.

The trade talks, which President Donald Trump said were “going really well,” extended into the second day on Friday.

Three before you leave — What to watch for Friday including trade talks and consumer data

Liu He, China’s vice premier, left, shakes hands with U.S. President Donald Trump during a meeting in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington, D.C., U.S., on April 4, 2019.

Here are the most important things to know about Friday before you hit the door.

Day two of the U.S.-China trade talks now includes a key meeting between President Donald Trump and Chinese Vice Premier Liu He. Traders cheered the announcement by Trump on Thursday as past meetings between Liu and Trump this year have yielded positive progress on trade, including a delay in tariffs and agriculture buying.

Liu told Chinese state-run media agency Xinhua that China carries “great sincerity” for the talks. Multiple reports suggest the U.S. is thinking about suspending a tariff increase scheduled for next week in exchange for a currency pact, a partial deal the U.S. and China were close to agreeing on in previous talks.

For investors reading the tea leaves of every trade headline, there are some stocks as the true “tell” on whether talks are making any progress.

Trump to meet with Chinese vice premier at White House: 'Big day of negotiations with China'

President Donald Trump said he’s meeting with Chinese Vice Premier Liu He on Friday, fueling optimism about a positive outcome from this week’s high-level trade talks.

“Big day of negotiations with China. They want to make a deal, but do I? I meet with the Vice Premier tomorrow at The White House,” Trump said in a tweet on Thursday.

The U.S. and China have begun their principal-level negotiations in Washington on Thursday. Trump’s comment about a meeting with Liu contrasted with a report from the South China Morning Post that said the two sides made no progress in deputy-level trade talks this week and Liu will cut his visit short.

Stocks surged after the president’s tweet, rebounding from a wild overnight session sparked by the SCMP article as well as multiple other media reports.

Earlier on Thursday, Liu told Chinese state-run media Xinhua that China carries “great sincerity” for the talks this week.

“The Chinese side has come with great sincerity and is willing to make serious exchanges with the U.S. on issues of common concern such as trade balance, market access and investor protection, and promote positive progress in the consultations,” Liu said.

Still, tensions between the two economic superpowers reached a fever pitch earlier in the week. The U.S. blacklisted 28 Chinese entities over alleged human rights violations against Muslim minorities in Xinjiang, while putting visa restrictions on Chinese officials involved. China responded “stay tuned” for retaliation against the blacklist.

Bloomberg News reported overnight that the White House is working up a partial deal to suspend next week’s tariff increase in exchange for a currency pact. The New York Times also reported that the Trump administration is grant licenses for some U.S. companies to sell nonsensitive supplies to Chinese telecom giant Huawei.

The Dow was last up more than 130 points.

Trump’s blacklist derails Goldman’s plan to take a Chinese AI company public

Trump's blacklist derails Goldman's plan to take a Chinese AI company public

An attendee uses his smartphone to record a facial-recognition demonstration on himself at the Beijing Megvii booth at the MWC Shanghai exhibition in Shanghai, China, on June 27, 2019.

President Donald Trump’s move to blacklist Chinese tech companies is threatening to derail what could be the first Chinese artificial intelligence firm to go public.

Megvii Technology, a Chinese AI company known for its facial recognition platform, is among a slew of companies the White House blacklisted due to alleged human rights violations against Muslim minorities in China’s far-western region of Xinjiang. Its planned initial public offering now might not see the light of day as Goldman Sachs, one of the IPO’s sponsors, said it’s rethinking its role due to the blacklist.

“We are evaluating in light of the recent developments,” regarding our involvement in the IPO, a spokesperson at Goldman told CNBC on Wednesday.

Megvii, backed by tech giant Alibaba, was scheduled to debut in the public markets in the fourth quarter and might raise as much as $1 billion, Reuters previously reported.

A spokesperson from Megvii said the company has no comment on Goldman’s statement.

Regarding Trump’s blacklist, Megvii said it “strongly objects to the company’s designation on the U.S. Commerce Department’s Entity List, for which there are no grounds.”

“We believe our inclusion on the list reflects a misunderstanding of our company and our technology, and we will be engaging with the U.S. government on this basis,” the spokesperson said. “Any direct business impact from this designation is expected to be minimal.”

The U.S. Department of Commerce on Monday barred eight companies, as well as 20 Chinese government entities, from doing business with American firms without being granted a U.S. government license. The Trump administration also put visa restrictions on Chinese officials “who are believed to be responsible for, or complicit in, the detention and abuse” of Muslim minority groups in Xinjiang.

The moves came just days before the U.S. and China resume their high-level trade talks in Washington this week. China on Tuesday said it “strongly urges” the U.S. to stay clear of the country’s domestic issues and remove the sanctions immediately. Asked whether China would retaliate for the blacklist, a Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman said “stay tuned.”
