TREADING A FINE LINE
In the wee hours of Wednesday morning (3rd) the Fine Line Art Collective targeted the Brighton branch of RBS by presenting a ‘free public art installation’ on their doorstep. Stripes of black and red paint were sloshed across the floor outside RBS’ front entrance and the cash machine was decorated with black paint oozing from its money spitting orifice.
The group chose the big bonus bank for its involvement in the tar sands extraction in Canada which is forcing indigenous people off their lands, and is shaping up to be the world’s biggest emitter of CO2.
