JadedSnapper is at a photocall, waiting for the ‘action’ to begin.
JadedSnapper: Hi guys
RedTopSnapper: [pointing to JS] Who’s this joker?
SilentSnapper: [shrugs shoulders]
RedTopSnapper: I’ve never seen him before – look at the kit – he must be a joker
SilentSnapper: [nods in agreement]
JS: Hey guys!…OI! I am here you know!
As I write this more than a hundred activists are winding their way through Edinburgh to a temporary camp set up next to the headquarters of RBS. It is of course, this year’s Camp for Climate Action, aka Climate Camp, who are targeting the taxpayer-owned bank for their funding of tar sands extraction in Canada. Up to a thousand activists are eventually expected to join the camp which will likely act as a springboard for other affinity group demonstrations and actions. I’d be there myself if I wasn’t brassic at the moment.
