The pictures speak for themselves: OFR hit the sunny streets of Stockbridge, stationing ourselves outside the two branches of Scotmid and the local RBS branch. While about 50% of members of the public appeared to ignore us, the other 50% took our flyers and several of these were very enthusiastic. One lady insisted on shaking our hands. She said, ‘So many people are passive these days. Thank you for taking action!’
We were drawing people’s attention to:
- the fact that Scotmid, which claims to be ethical, banks with the Royal Bank of Scotland, a bank that backs projects responsible for appalling human rights and environmental abuses, and
- the fact that RBS teaches kids in Scottish schools about money!
