Green Party Councillor Smashed Bank Windows With Extinction Rebellion – Refuses to Resign



A Green Party Councillor who was found guilty of breaking the windows of a bank in Norwich has rejected growing calls for her to resign. 

In April 2021, Extinction Rebellion members Cllr Amanda Fox of the Green Party and a second female activist violently smashed multiple expensive windows of the Barclays bank on St. James’s Court.

Following her conviction, Fox’s position was deemed “untenable” by Norwich City Council leader Mike Stonard, but the Councillor is refusing to stand down, claiming that the support she has received from the far-left has “overwhelmed me”.

Using hammers and chisels, the Councillor and her environmental activism crew caused £5,000 worth of damage to the building, frightening onlookers, with many condemning her actions on social media and in her own constituency.

On Tuesday, Fox, 52, of Kilderkin Way, Norwich, and Jennifer Parkhouse, 71, of Vale Green in the city, were found guilty of criminal damage.

They are due to be sentenced at Huntingdon Crown Court in November.


Councillor Stonard, from the Labour Party, said: “When councillor Fox stood for election to the city council last May, her leaflets made no mention of this impending case, even though it was known.

“She even stated in her leaflets that she had been working hard tackling crime and anti-social behaviour. This was utter hypocrisy.

“She has damaged the reputation of her office and has brought the council into disrepute. She should do the decent thing and resign from the council.”
