Naked Climate Campers Hit The Town

It's been a relatively quiet weekend (so quiet the Standard are left with nothing but some hoary old crap about 'ooo, some campers don't like the police'. Quick, hold the front page) but the eco protesters have made up for it this morning with a bunch of direct action around the city. That sound? Journalists weeping tears of relief into their lattes because they don't have to travel to south-east London today.

There was action at the Treasury and City Airport yesterday, but what always catches the eye is a naked protest. Seven people got their kit off in the window (and a few clothed protesters on the roof) of PR company Edelman, who do the spin for the proposed Kingsnorth coal-fired power station. Campers are also focusing on that old favourite, RBS. They're outside with banners while others are inside, chained and glued to the floor. They got in using that wily old ruse of dressing as builders. Clearly, RBS have not been watching enough 1950s heist movies.
