Ten protesters who occupied posh shop Fortnum & Mason during a UK Uncut demonstration against corporate tax avoidance have lost an appeal against their conviction for aggravated trespass.
A sit-in organised by the group was held at the store on London's Piccadilly in March 2011.
A judge at Westminster magistrates' court, who later conditionally discharged all but one of the 10, said the scene was "chaotic."
But at the High Court today Lord Justice Moses and Mr Justice Kenneth Parker said that on the facts found by the judge, there could be no conclusion other than that each of the 10 was guilty of aggravated trespass.
"They were guilty because they themselves had the intention to intimidate, and because they had committed the conduct element of that offence," said Lord Justice Moses.
