21-02-2011 11:36

Local anti-cuts protestors “bailed in” to the Wood Green branch of Barclay’s Bank to protest against the government cuts agenda.

About half of the 30 or so local residents occupied the bank and turned it into a home - with rugs, chairs and cushions - to bring attention to the number of people that will face homelessness if cuts to housing benefit and other public services go ahead. The occupation lasted over half an hour, before the protestors moved outside to continue their protest in front of the doors. The branch remained shut for at least another an hour. 200 special anti-banks leaflets were distributed, and also over 1,500 leaflets publicising the coming borough-wide anti-cuts rally at the Civic Centre on Thursday 24th February.
