About the Fortnum 145: The ‘Fortnum 145’ are the protestors who, on the weekend of March 26th 2011, were arrested after an occupation of the department store Fortnum & Mason in London. The occupation raised awareness of a £40million tax dodge by F&M’s parent company, Wittington Investments. A police spokesperson inside the building was filmed saying the demonstration was “sensible” and “non-violent” and shopper Joan Higgins from Liverpool described the protester’s theatrical show as “the perfect accompaniment to my tea and scones”. The ‘Fortnum 145’ campaign is being run by the friends and family of those protesters.
