Homeless Polar Bears in Court

...and then go with friends to protest again against RBS
Four homeless polar bears appeared before Bristol Magistrates Court today 14th November. We were arrested after blockading the Royal Bank of Scotland corporate offices on Avon St. as part of the National Day of local action on 15th October called by Rising Tide. The day of action was to highlight the role of the Royal Bank of Scotland in financing the oil and gas industry resulting in climate chaos throughout the world.
We blockaded the Royal Bank of Scotland's offices by dressing up as polar bears and laying on the ground across the vehicle entrance connected by concrete filled suitcases. (Polar bears and millions of people are being displaced from their homes by climate related degradation of the environment). After six and half hours of blockading we were cut out of suit cases and arrested.
