About 30 activists campaigning against proposed changes to the NHS have protested outside banks in Brighton.
Sussex Police said the UK Uncut demonstrators met at the clocktower before visiting banks in North Street.
They said the "good-natured" activists ended their protest outside Top Shop in Western Road at 1400 BST.
Their action was part of a nationwide protest calling for the banks, rather than cuts to public services, to pay for the economic crisis.
Banks in London, Manchester, Glasgow, Cambridge and Bristol were among those occupied in the protest dubbed the Emergency Operation.
