Barclays spoof video with BBC’s the revolution will be televised

Dear Bridgend Green Party

The stars of BBC 3s The Revolution Will Be Televised are teaming up with World Development Movement to launch a new film today parodying Barclays role in speculating on food prices.

This hilarious spoof is meant to draw attention to the fact that Barclays is making profits of £500 million whilst speculating on food prices. This speculation is driving up the price of food in poor countries and drastically exacerbating world hunger.

Check out the 3 minute film: here

If you liked the film, please make sure to take action and send an email to George Osborne. Follow the link to see how.

We are trying to get as many people to watch and share this film as possible. If you could share this on facebook, twitter or email that would be fantastic.

Use the hashtags #Barclays and #foodspeculation if you can.
