Occupy London to respond to Ed Miliband’s article in Sunday’s Observer
Occupy London welcomes Ed Miliband’s recognition that we have something important to add to the conversation about how we can make this country a better, fairer place – just as we would welcome the support of anyone else.
Writing in this Sunday’s Observer, Miliband comments: “The challenge is that they reflect a crisis of concern for millions of people about the biggest issue of our time: the gap between their values and the way our country is run.” Check out the front page of the paper and this article.
Occupy London’s formal response will be discussed and debated by our General Assemblies, which will take place at 1pm and 7pm tomorrow at St Paul’s Churchyard. All are welcome to join in this discussion whether your viewpoint is from the left, right or neither.
Further events at Occupy London tomorrow include:
