New Internationalist: Occupy: this is the end of the beginning

Not long after midnight this morning, the bailiffs finally moved in to evict the tents at the Occupy Camp at St Paul’s. The message is obvious. The City of London does not want a permanent witness to its excesses on the verge of the London Stock Exchange.

It is over four months now since the first mass meetings on those iconic steps. Perhaps it is fitting that the location is best known acro…

Scriptonite Daily: Sleepless Night - The Eviction of Occupy St Pauls

The phone rang at 1230am.  I sleepily answered to be informed that the police were on site at St Pauls, dragging tents into rubbish trucks.  Eviction had come.  This was the start of a sleepless night, calling friends, pointing in disbelief at the pictures on the screen and barking ‘Do your research!’ at poorly informed BBC News 24 reporters.  Today’s article recaps the eviction, revisits the achi…

WordPress: Occupy St.Pauls Last Stand

It looked like the ALAMO or the last minutes on the roof at the  STRANGEWAYS MUTINY..the resisters bravely  made a makeshift barricade and climbed on top and held out to the last. Solidarity to you all who have chosen action rather than  words. (no doubt the barricade will be reassembled and in an art gallery by the en of the year). Actually it reminds me of barricades of the PARIS COMMUNE - …

New Statesman: An Open Letter to the St Paul’s Protesters

Dear protesters,

I will be sorry to see you go. I work in the City of London, and I have walked past your tents most days since you camped in the churchyard of St Paul's Cathedral. Anyone who knows the area around the Cathedral will appreciate that you have not been any genuine obstruction. Indeed, one almost has to go out of one's way to be obstructed by you. No one walking from, say, Ludga…
