OCCUPY LONDON STOCK EXCHANGE
The nearest to the London Stock Exchange that protesters were able to set up their camp was a paved public area close by, just outside the main entrance to St Paul's cathedral in London. The aim of the protesters is to highlight corporate greed and inequality. The camp is now in its ninth day.
The cathedral authorities have closed St Paul's to visitors, church worshippers and pilgrims, on account of health and safety concerns, and have asked the protesters to move peacefully. The protesters have set up a second camp in Finsbury Square, also in the city of London area. The church is said to be losing between £16,000 and £20,000 each day.
The protest on its own doorsteps has put the church in an awkward situation.
