Democracy Action – Occupy Parliament.
October 17, 2014
Parliament Square

On March 1st 2014, at a General Assembly on the steps of St Paul’s Cathedral, Occupy London decided to form a Democracy Action Working Group (DAWG). Part of the remit of this group is organise for a mass action for Democracy.

A starting date for the mass action has been chosen: Friday October 17th. UN International Day for the Eradication of Poverty.
This will be 3 year anniversary of Occupy London and Occupy the World, when 1,000 locations were Occupied calling for social and environmental justice; it also coincides, on Saturday 18th, with the TUC march.

We will be challenging the legality of stifling protests in Parliament. The requirement to gain permission from the police for our Right to Protest, the confiscation of Tents and anything that can be regarded as sleeping materials within sight of the Houses of Parliament.

Minutes of DAWG meetings have been published in the ‘working group updates’ section of the OL website; on 10.4.14, dates and places for the mass action were discussed and decided – minutes are here.

Check the OL Events page for dates and times of DAWG meetings if you’d like to get involved.
