Bank & Stock Exchange, London. Tue 22 Oct 2013
People met up at Bank a few minutes later than promised
and there were a few songs
and some poetry from Pete the Temp
The protesters surrounded the area with hazard tape 'Climate Crime Scene'
As well as songs and poetry there was also a short talk about why this was a Climate Crime scene
People filled black (and purple) balloons to represnt carbon dioxide. They had intended them all to be black
but found it difficult to find black balloons
Some burst as they tried to label them with Tippex or felt pen
From Bank the protesters walked to the Stock Exchange
pausing briefly at the north entrance
before going around the the main entrance on Paternoster Square
ignoring a legal notice on the way (if they noticed if)
and there was a talk about the Stock Exchange's involvement in Climate Crime
and a song (Buddy won't you spare a dime)
People with their balloons
Security men discussed the protest with police who had come to follow the tour around
The prepared to pop the balloons
And all but one has been popped - and the final one didn't last long
