Why did the English equivalent of Occupy Wallstreet pick St Paul’s as the place to protest?

Because St. Paul’s is hand in glove with the City of London Corporation, the place where democracy and light “goes to die,” the place where there is no accountability or transparency for the powerful 1%.

A comment by the protesters: Why are they there, in that spot of London?

An attempt to shed light on the dark heart of capitalism, the City of London Corporation.

Watch the events in London carefully. I am surprised that economists have not commented on what the City of London Corporation. Our banks are there…unfettered by any regulation, any oversight. Goldman and Sachs? You betcha.

The priests and clergy that have resigned have resigned because they know the truth of what this place is—and how St. Paul’s is complicit.

Anyway, this will whet your conspiracy bug…and it is true.

Quote by from San Francisco Chronicle via Reader Supported News on the Berkley OWS

“The individuals who linked arms and actively resisted, that in itself is an act of violence,” UC police Capt. Margo Bennett said. “I understand that many students may not think that, but linking arms in a human chain when ordered to step aside is not a nonviolent protest.”

And another push is planned by the City Council in Oakland.
