Two banks close due to planned protest

8 September, 2011

Planned protest targeting investors in arms achieves early success.

Both Lloyds TSB and Halifax Broadmead have already chosen to shut down for the entire day, anyone would think they had something to hide! well in fact they do

Halifax Bank of Scotland has been part of six syndicated loans to the arms sector
over the last 10 years worth £1.2 billion.

and Lloyds TSB is worse still having been part of 40 syndicated loans to the arms sector over the last 10 years worth £33.3 billion, including loans to producers of cluster munitions and depleted uranium munitions.

Join us Saturday 10th September – in our picket of the high street banks which remain open. 1pm Castle Park, Bristol.
