Scenes from the British Revolution on Tottenham Court Road
PROTESTERS set up an impromptu library and comedy gig at Barclays branches around Britain over tax avoidance claims.
UK Uncut supporters hit banks in London and other cities to “open them up” and said one per cent corporation tax was “not acceptable”.
In Piccadilly Circus they waved banners saying “books not bonuses!” Barclays, which paid £113million corporation tax on profits of £11.6billion in 2009, said: “We comply with taxation laws.”
