Police in London are starting to evict occupy protesters and begin arrests

Occupy London camp eviction starts




Police and bailiffs have moved in to remove protesters from the Occupy London camp at St Paul's Cathedral. Bailiffs have started to remove tents and other equipment from the site. There have been no reports of trouble. Occupy London was last week refused permission to appeal against a High Court decision to allow their eviction to proceed. Occupy London, which campaigns against corporate greed, set up the camp on 15 October.


Protesters have chained themselves to barricades as riot police move in. A warm balmy night, in London just what the police don't want.

Only one arrest so far and that was in the last 10 minutes. Lots of footage of paths being swept and people gathered on "the last stand" stand. Worth putting on BBC news cos they have live coverage. If you want to see paths being swept.


Edit: Nope, now they are destroying the last stand it seems. Probably won't be there for long!

I hope they continue to stand their ground! Give police flowers and gifts, warm words. Attract the media with friendly stunts. Stay together, be loyal to each other. And if fellow protestors are arrested and charged for 'disturbing the peace' or 'resisting arrest', bail them out if you can. People are listening!

We need to "Occupy" the heart of the global financial meltdown, the federal reserve. The movement needs something to aim for, why shouldn't that be tearing down the most elaborate fraud in global economics.

Occupiers aren't usually the more-educated type you find on sites like ATS and even YouTube. They don't follow much alternative news and their views tend to be mainstream. They are learning as they go. I for one am glad that they are making a stand for what's right (democracy, fairless, rights and freedoms for the People over big business.) Democracy seems to be vanishing on the world scale.

Just a technical question here..but I think it means everything. In London, are these people in a place that is considered legal and private property? I'm totally unclear on the Occupy situation in London for legal status. Here, it's outlaw from the word go and day 1...but is it the same there?

Hopefully police there at least show restraint and make arrests without taking actual pleasure from making the process a physical one where it needn't be.

We're not too far off from internment camps.

Next stop...Nazi v2.0
