Reoccupation next Saturday

A meeting was held at the Trafalgar Square Occupation on Sunday 3rd April 12.00. It was decided nearly unanimously to have a repeat of the occupation on Saturday 9th April with a possibility to making this a weekly occurrence.
In occupying Trafalgar Square repeatedly so soon after the half-a-million strong march on the 26th of March and Vince Cable’s refusal to “change its fundamental economic policy simply in response to a demonstration of that kind.” we want to show that we will not go back home until the government realises that popular opinion is against its program of cuts and changes its policies.
Ater the violent eviction of peaceful protesters on March 26th we intend to show that without police presence protesters can organise themselves peaceully and lawfully. We showed this on the 2nd of April when the police stayed at a distance for the entire occupation and there was no conflict or illegal activity. Police intervention at protests only serve to antagonise and incite violence. This occupation intends to defend our right to peaceful protest.
