Today – ‘Capitalism’s Last Christmas Carol Tour’; New Move Your Money Santa video!

 

 

Bonus-rich bankers and Christmas shoppers in the City of London will today experience ‘Capitalism’s Last Christmas Carol Tour’.

Beginning at 3pm at Liverpool Street station, the tour will see subverted Christmas carols being sung by Occupy supporters on a Tour around the City, with similar actions happening in Madrid and Berlin this week.

Facebook event at https://www.facebook.com/events/302342999884038/.

Bringing the message of “If this is not capitalism’s last Christmas, then it might be the National Health Service’s last one!”, Londoners can expect Christmas cheer with a serious message, with updated lyrics to carols including “Silent debt, Holy debt. All is owed, All is wrecked”.

 

Video – Santa Claus and Move Your Money UK visit the ‘naughty’ London banks

The action comes as Santa Claus and Move Your Money UK has released a video of its recent action visiting ’naughty’ London banks, including Lloyds, HSBC, Barclays and RBS for their role in a slurry of 2012 banking scandals including LIBOR rigging, PPI and CDS miss-selling, and money laundering for Iran, Al Qaeda, and Mexican drug cartels.[1]

The video is part of Move Your Money UK’s campaign to encourage the public to move their bank accounts out of the unaccountable too-big-to-fail high street banks, following the 500,000 + irate customers who have already moved this year.

With Move Your Money’s angry Santa expected to make an appearance for Capitalism’s Last Christmas Carol Tour, all are welcome to join the fun. Meeting points are:

  • 3pm – Liverpool Street Station by exit to Bishopsgate
  • 5pm – Bank of England / Royal Exchange
  • 5.30pm – London Stock Exchange
  • 6pm – Steps of St.Paul’s Cathedral.

“This Christmas, we are taking our singing message to the bailed-out bankers, privatisation profiteers, tax dodgers, engines of austerity, the temples of usury – the usual suspects,” said Anna Davids, who is taking part in Capitalism’s Last Christmas Carol Tour. “The City of London is at the heart of many injustices – its institutions are key to financial speculation, which is causing suffering around the world, not to mention tax evasion and bank bail-outs, that have left gaping holes in the Budget in the UK where our public services are being destroyed to pay for the bankers’ crisis.”
