Bar­clays cus­tomers in tar sands oil plea

The Observer - - Business & Cash -

Thou­sands of Bar­clays cus­tomers have threat­ened to switch to an­other bank un­less it prom­ises not to in­vest in pipe­lines for oil from tar sands, dubbed the “dirt­i­est fuel on the planet”. Green­peace, which oc­cu­pied a branch of Bar­clays on Wed­nes­day morn­ing, said 30,000 cus­tomers had signed a pe­ti­tion calling on the lender to prom­ise never to fund con­tro­ver­sial tar sands projects.
