 Many of the balloons carried a message calling for divestment

 A supporter of the divest movement from the University of the Arts adds to one of the posters

 'Time's Up - Divest Now'

 PhD student Roger Hallam was suspended for writing “Divest From Oil and Gas Now. Out of Time!” in washable paint at an earlier protest

 The message to King's College is DIVEST 

 

 Police asked those who painted dots for their names and addresses, and some gave them
