Activists have gathered in Edinburgh ahead of a four-day protest against the Royal Bank of Scotland and climate change.
The Camp for Climate Action said it is targeting RBS because of its 'commitment to financing the fossil fuel industry', including loans to coal, oil and gas companies. The planned swoop on the RBS headquarters in Gogarburn began yesterday.
Extra security has been set up on the entrance, exits and access roads to the RBS HQ following yesterday morning's protests.
Ruth Brown, a community worker from London said: "Destructive projects like open coal mines in the UK are only made possibly through finance from banks like RBS. The government bailed them out and now they use their profits to destroy communities and are causing catastrophic climate change."
On the television last night the police were helping the protestors settle in and were good enough to bring water supplies and other essentials. Wonderful isn't it that our police have all the time in the world to pander to a tiny bunch of folk who are an unfortunate by-product of the climate change hysteria which has been forced upon us by those with vested financial interests.
