More AIG & Barclays DemosTagged as: animal_liberation hls shac social_struggles vivisection
This morning yet again we were outside the doors of the AIG building in Fenchurch Street demanding they sell their blood money shares in HLS. This company is spending US tax payer's money on supporting the torture of monkeys, puppies and kittens inside HLS - what a disgrace! We were there from half eight to greet the workers going in and stayed for about an hour and a quarter. They didn't like the "World's biggest ever losers" placard one bit, though it is completely accurate.
We the made our way out of the City of London to do a couple of demonstrations against Barclays branches. We spent about an hour at Barclays in Piccadilly Circus. A member of the public stated to us that he would definitely close his account, and the support was generally very good here. Then, after a quick vegan burger in Soho, we demonstrated the Barclays in Soho Square.
The staff were not happy at this location and called the police, even though we were only chanting and handing out leaflets. The police told us that the Barclays staff wanted us on the other side of the road. We told the police that we wanted Barclays to sell their shares in HLS! The police didn't follow through with any of their pathetic threats and we carried on the demo.
A good trio of demos today and reaction was very good at all locations. We will only stop against these two companies when they sell their shares in HLS.
