Should Occupy London Be Dealt With The NYC Way?
Tuesday 15th November 2011
Overnight, protestors in New York taking part in Occupy Wall Street have been evicted from their encampment.
Notices were handed out at 1am saying that Zuccotti Park had to be cleared, with officials claiming it had become unsanitary and hazardous.
Hundreds of police officers in riot gear raided the New York City park, evicting and arresting dozens of protesters, before dawn.
For many the protest in the heart of New York's financial district has become the epicentre of the worldwide movement protesting at corporate greed and economic inequality.
It was following the success of Occupy Wall Street that many other similar movements sprung up - including Occupy London Stock Exchange, which set up outside St Paul's Cathedral after being unable to gain access to London's financial centre.
Today marks a month since the camp - which involves hundreds of people and has seen the area covered in tents and protests.
