Climate refugee polar bears blockade the Oil Bank of Scotland
15 October 2007

A group of ‘climate refugees’ blocked the vehicle entrance to the Royal Bank of Scotland’s Corporate Offices at Temple Quay to shine the spotlight on climate criminals RBS, the self-proclaimed ‘Oil and Gas’ Bank. Six people from Bristol Rising Tide for Climate Action in polar bear costumes locked themselves together and prevented all vehicles entering the RBS branch. This was part of a National Day of Local Action against the Royal Bank of Scotland called by those hugely concerned with the devastation to the climate, planet and people.[1]

Not a Climate for Cuts

Rising Tide has never believed that national governments are capable of truly and fairly tackling climate change. This is partly because they refuse to accept the root causes and partly, as people have seen in Germany, even an elected "Green" Party is quickly co-opted into mainstream political approaches. So over the past ten years, rather than lobbying, we have focused our attention on tackling these root causes and building grassroots alternatives to the crisis. Our analysis – that climate change is intimately connected to social justice struggles and indeed, is a product of global inequality – has gained ground during that time.

Boxes2On a chilly Saturday afternoon on 27th of November, Oxford street shoppers were distracted by the launch of London Rising Tide's sales and advertising team's new product, Nothing(c).

We decided to mark the annual Buy Nothing Day this year by giving out a thousand free samples of '˜Nothing' to the desperate shoppers scrabbling for the latest must-have item. On our stall we had Nothing for everyone: “ Nothing for Men, Nothing for Women, Nothing Lite, Nothing for Those who have Everything and Nothing - Now with even Less. A cheeky flyer explaining the authenticity of our product and giving a link to the Buy Nothing Day website was given out along with the box of Nothing.
