XRO Street-party and disruptive action targeting Barclays bank for its fossil fuel investments
13th July 2019 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
Barclays is the #1 UK bank investing in fossil fuels, including toxic tar sands and fracking, literally threatening the collapse of civilisation due to climate breakdown.
They have ignored requests to stop so many times that we are now asking by engaging in peaceful disruption of their activities.
This event will involve a street-party on pedestrianised Cornmarket street (arrest risk: tiny) with the aim of reaching out to the public to inform them about the climate and ecological crises and our response, and a disruptive event inside the bank (arrest risk: near zero or low, depending on whether you leave when asked).
Music from the Rebel Folk Scratch Band at 11:00 (folk musicians welcome to spontaneously join), Rebel DJs later.
If you are interested in the disruptive element, please contact email@example.com for details.
