Activists from the Forest Rebellion, known as Skogsupproret in Sweden, protest outside the premises of the Timber Trade Federation at the Building Centre on 24th July 2021 in London, United Kingdom. The activists were protesting against the clearcutting of natural forests in Sweden and the social and environmental impacts of timber imports from Swedish logging companies with UK subsidiaries belonging to the Timber Trade Federation, whilst also standing in solidarity with the indigenous Sami people of northern Scandinavia and demanding that their rights be respected. Sweden is the largest lumber supplier to the UK.
