Day IX - 25.10.2014
London 17-26.10.2014. A day at the Parliament Square Occupy Democracy Camp in London. Protesters have been camping in Parliament Square since the 17th of October and they will leave on Sunday the 26th. Since the beginning of the direct action protesters have been battling with the MET Police and the Greater London Authority's Heritage Wardens (provided under private contract by AOS Security) over the specific bylaw which applies to a designated area immediately surrounding and including Parliament Square and which bans sleeping equipment. Several people have been arrested, including the Green Party's Baroness Jenny Jones, member of the London Assembly who was later "de-arrested". In the meantime, numerous celebrities, politicians, experts, activists, and members of the public met for conferences and debates about various topics, from democracy to climate change, to the economic crisis, to corruption, to poetry and many more.
