Occupy more!

The Occupy movement in the UK was dealt a major blow on 28 February when bailiffs evicted protesters and removed their tents from outside St Paul’s cathedral in central London. There were 20 arrests during the clearance for the four-month-old camp.

The reverend Giles Fraser, who resigned as canon chancellor of St Paul’s in support of the protesters, said: ‘This is a sad day for the church.’ The court of appeal had decided on 22 February not to allow an appeal against the eviction.

On 21 March, Occupy London announced a new camp in Limehouse in addition to their existing camp in Finsbury Square.
