We are also delighted to have received solidarity from Megan Dobney, Regional Secretary, TUC (Southern and Eastern Region), who said: “Solidarity greetings to the Occupy London Stock Exchange occupation at St Paul’s Cathedral from the Southern and Eastern Region of the TUC. Capitalism isn’t working forLondon’s children living in poverty, for those without a home, or for the capital’s unemployed. Direct action, with consideration and energy, gives hope. All best wishes this week for your legal challenge and thanks for your actions.”
Ronan McNern, supporter of Occupy London commented: “We are plotting a series of celebrations and actions for all to enjoy during the Christmas holidays. All at St Paul’s Cathedral,Finsbury Square and the Bank of Ideas welcome you to come visit us over this Festive period and get involved in the many upcoming activities.
“We’d welcome donations of food, decorations, or gifts; cards and messages, songs and musicians. Or just your presence to celebrate the festive season with us. This is the end of a year that has seen new hope springing up all over the world as the 99 per cent find a collective voice. No one guessed when we set up camp by the London Stock Exchange on 15 October that more than two months later we would still be here, getting stronger, spreading, and looking to the future!”
