Notts Uncut Field Trip
On Saturday 7th May Notts Uncut jumped on the train to Lincoln to support a brand new Uncut group. We met to Lincoln contingent and a large welcoming committee formed by the Lincolnshire constabulary and their camera crew. Undeterred we made our way from the station to the first tax avoider on our list - BHS. We held a short information session there and talked to the staff and shoppers in BHS about Philip Green’s generosity to his wife (who conveniently lives in the tax haven Monaco).
We then made our way through the streets of Lincoln carrying our youngest uncutter aloft with his own version of the Magna Carta - Tax Magna Carta & Bankers Bill - to emulate the historical event of the Magna Carta being carried through Lincoln many years ago.
We visited many of our familiar favourites in Lincoln including Dorothy Perkins, NatWest, Lloyds TSB, Boots, Barclays and Vodafone, stopping on the way to say a huge hurrah and thankyou to the wonderful Lush and their owner Mark Constantine for the support he has offered to the UK Uncut protesters arrested in Fortnum and Mason on March 26th.
Lincoln has the beginnings of a fantastic uncut movement with loads of imagination, ideas and creativity. Thanks for having us guys!!
