Protesters Plan To Occupy London Stock Exchange

We reported earlier on protests at the Chicago Federal Reserve, and there was word last night of protests planned for Boston.


UK Telegraph

A group of protesters are organising an occupation of the London Stock Exchange to bring attention to what they see as unethical behaviour on the part of banks, following a similar demonstration on Wall Street.

In a Facebook group called Occupy the London Stock Exchange organisers call on crowds to march on the exchange's headquarters at Paternoster Square and fortify it with tents and barricades "for a few months."

"Beginning on October 15, we want to see at least over 20,000 people flood into lower St Pauls, set up tents, kitchens, peaceful barricades and occupy the London Stock Exchange for a few months. Once there, we shall incessantly repeat one simple demand in a plurality of voices," reads the description of the protest on Facebook.

"The beauty of this new formula, and what makes this novel tactic exciting, is its pragmatic simplicity: we talk to each other in various physical gatherings and virtual people's assemblies … we zero in on what our one demand will be, a demand that awakens the imagination and, if achieved, would propel us toward the radical democracy of the future … and then we go out and seize a square of singular symbolic significance and put our asses on the line to make it happen..."

The closest thing to a stock exchange for us is a feedlot down the road. We'd love to occupy that in solidarity with the protesters but the smell is really bad there. However I'm sure there is a terrible stink outside all stock exchanges (a mixed stench of greed and corruption) and all those wonderful occupiers are bravely holding their noses while doing what has to be done. Good on 'em all!
