'Public shareholders' protest outside the RBS AGM at the EICC...CHANCELLOR Alistair Darling yesterday (Wednesday) insisted he was in "no hurry" to sell government shares in bailed-out banks - as a group of protestors blasted the RBS for what they claim are unethical investments...Around 100 members of a group of human rights and environment campaigners made an hour long rally outside the financial giants' annual general meeting which was held in Edinburgh yesterday...They claim that RBS has spent billions of pounds investing in projects which are decimating habitats and communities as well as increasing the risk of climate change...Just a few hundred yards away, Mr Darling addressed a group of business leaders in a hotel, where he told them he and Gordon Brown are the men to lead the country out of recession...And although Mr Darling insisted that financial institutes who are part-publically owned must "behave themselves" he insisted the government were not yet ready to part with their shares in RBS..
