Got to go through it

On 6 March, Occupy Democracy was granted permission to take the mayor of London to court over his decision to fence off Parliament Square.

The high court allowed a judicial review, focused on Boris Johnson’s decision to put large metal fences up halfway through a 10-day protest in October 2014.

Police said the barriers were needed for repair work and maintenance of the grass – which never seemed to take place.
