Stroud News and Journal write: “PROTESTERS have graffitied Barclays bank in Stroud to show their displeasure at the company’s investment in fracking. The slogan #ToxicBankers, FRACK OFF and DIVEST NOW have been spray painted on the side of the King Street bank by the group Rising Up! They claim the bank has a 97 per cent stake in Third Energy, a corporation seeking fracking in the Ryedale area of Yorkshire, they say this places them “on the wrong side of history”. On top of this they also say Barclays are the banker for and fourth largest investor in IGas Energy, which has the most oil and gas exploration licences in the UK….The campaigners state that because the graffiti was applied with chalk paint it will wash off with water and not damage the building.”
