Local activists Target barclays

Just after getting out of court (over a possesion order for their squat, and a charge of obstructing a bailiff), local people met with other BAN activists - including a couple of new faces (shock, horror!) and staged a small protest outside Bath Barclays. The demo was well recieved by passers by, and recieved a little of the direct action treatment when two protestors 'found' a ladder and occupied the roof to stage a banner drop. After negotiating with police, the roof occupiers stayed in place for two hours before avoiding arrest and coming down.

All in all a good day.
