Occupy Edinburgh protest
I nipped over to St Andrew’s Square today to see what was happening at the Occupy Edinburgh camp. There are between 40 and 50 tents pitched around the square. A vocal group of protesters marched to the council offices, demanding a ‘Robin Hood’ tax. On their way back to the square, they ended the protest at the Royal Bank of Scotland building.
A couple of protesters quickly shimmied up the monument to the fourth earl of Hopetoun, used a scarf to gag him, and decorated him with a Robin Hood hat.
