Occupy the City at St Pauls – Eviction Pending
November 1, 2011
It was announced on the news yesterday, that St Pauls Cathedral and the City of London Corporation have filed for an eviction order for the anti-capitalist protesters that have been there since 15th October. This occupation has, on the whole, given the protest movement in the UK some good press, especially compared to the riots and student protests earlier in the year. The occupiers have been media savvy and have successfully got their point across in a peaceful way. The location has also worked in their favour, bringing in a lot of walk by support and interest. Like half of the photographers in London, I was down there at the start of the occupation. I was shooting for the wire through Barcroft Media / Specialist Stock.
