Video – Edinburgh Uncut at Bhs – 28th May 2011

Video of Edinburgh Uncut’s protest at Bhs on May 28, during which two women were arrested and both charged with Breach of the Peace, one also with “Resisting Arrest”. Four days after the protest, another activist was arrested at his home and also charged with Breach of the Peace.

Breach of the Peace requires conduct severe enough to cause alarm to ordinary people and threaten serious disturbance to the community. It should be conduct that is genuinely alarming and disturbing, in its context, to any reasonable person. It is clear that something substantially greater than mere irritation is involved.

However, members of the public were not alarmed or distressed by our presence inside the store, as can be seen in the video:
