Brighton Target Barclays picket
Barclays demo in Manchester
Later in the afternoon activists held a picket and stall outside Barclays Bank on Preston Circus calling for Barclays to divest from the arms trade and to stop providing financial services to ITT, EDO's parent company.
Plenty of people seem angry at Barclays at the moment, local people were keen to get information from the stall and over the weekend activists in Manchester held a demo outside Barclays (see photo). Barclays AGM a few weeks ago was attended by a variety of groups including Occupy LSX and the World Development Movement - its time for anti-militarists to step up the campaign against Barclays - Come and join us at our picket of Barclays in North Street, Brighton, on Saturday at 1 pm (see http://smashedo.org.uk/events/event/target-barclays-2)
