Default St Pauls Marks a Year on from Occupy

Probably the biggest casualty of the Occupy movement was Saint Pauls Cathedral, who ended up surrounded by tented anarchists this time last year who had wanted to camp in nearby paternoster square to hinder the stock exchange but had been barred by the police.

They set up Camp around Saint Paul's Cathedral with absolutely no aims or agenda, and were welcomed by a member of Chapter, the Canon Precentor who embraced their cause...but as the weeks went by it became evident that health and safety issues were being raised by the camp and that tourists were abandoning visiting St Paul's
