As Occupy London prepares for its first anniversary on Monday, an estimated 400 supporters are now gathered outside St Paul’s Cathedral, for #GlobalNoise – a global day of protest to highlight the fact that people are still here, one year on, united and more determined than ever. [1]

Speakers from the Quebec student movement and activists from Greece and Spain have already addressed the crowd, as has Samar Barakat from the occupied and reopened Friern Barnet library.  After hearing from Nick Dearden from Jubilee Debt Campaign, the event will move on to a secret location.

For live updates throughout the day, keep an eye on the Occupy London twitter (@occupylondon) or join the more than 9000 viewers logged into our news stream (http://live.occupylondon.org.uk/).  Expect surprises.

Occupy London’s birthday celebrations continue right up until 20 October.  Details of planned events are available on our website. [2]
