after the morning's carnival of dirt protests, around 30 activists re-grouped at green park in the afternoon, and they targetted the offices of global commodity trader, glencoe, with some street theatre.
suited money men abused local people and threw money around outside the doors of glencoe, which were swiftly shut and protected by security men. each 'banknote' had information about glencoe and other trading companies, and their part in the theft of resources from indigenous peoples throughout the world.
after the action, flowers were offered to the security guards, and the activists cleared up all the bank-note/info slips they had thrown about.
later in the evening, there was a carnival party on the south bank.
