Occupy London is "an activist group, stemming from the non-violent protest and demonstration against economic inequality that took place in London, United Kingdom, from 15 October 2011 till 14 June 2012" [Wikipedia]. It describes itself as "part of a global movement that has brought together concerned citizens from across the world, to fight against this injustice and for a new political and economic system that puts people, democracy and the environment before profit. Occupy is a grassroots’ movement that values diversity and horizontality, meaning that every individual who participates stands equal to everyone else".
It was initiated by social movement activists and encourages people to participate through public assembly, organising & campaigning, and protest & direct action. Occupy London is local and global in orientation and concerned with anti-discrimination, equality & social justice; democracy, politics & representation; economy; education; environment & sustainability; public services and research, knowledge production & information access.
