Short film about the Bristol Uncut Demo. On Saturday 19th March Bristol Uk Uncut will turn a bank into a library. We?ll be having poetry readings, story time, and educating people on the actions of the banks and the ways in which they can and should contribute more to repairing the damage caused by their negligence and greed. So bring a good book, a poem, library/librarian signs and equipment, banners and flyers, cakes (?) and sweeties, and as many people as possible. Engage with the public and bank staff, stay safe and have fun. Where? The meeting place is in front of the Bristol University Students? Union, Queens Road, Clifton right in the heart of LibDem MP, Stephen Williams?s constituency. (Right near to bus routes from City Centre and Bristol Temple Meads station.) We?ll be meeting at 11am, then moving onto our target location. Why We Are Taking Action In 2007, years of irresponsible lending, rash and reckless speculation and a lack of regulation in the banking sector came to a head, causing a global financial crisis and subsequent recession that led directly to the current program of massive cuts. Several banks were saved from collapse by the government; the National Audit Office reported that the amount of public money used to bail them out reached almost ?1tn at its peak. Yet the City continues to reward itself. The bailed-out Royal Bank of Scotland has just handed shares worth ?28m to nine of its top executives in the latest round of multi-million pound bonus awards by the high street banks. If that?s not disgraceful enough, Barclays have just announced pay-outs for its top five bankers amounting ?110 million. THIS IS MORE THAN THREE TIMES THE ?30 MILLION THAT BRISTOL CITY COUNCIL HAS MADE IN CUTS.
