Occupy LSX criticizes British media The Occupy London Stock Exchange movement has criticized the British media for downgrading the anti-capitalism demonstration after claiming only one out of ten protest camps were occupied during the nights. British media, which had formerly imposed a total blackout on the event, claimed that the majority of Occupy LSX protesters who are camped outside St Paul's Cathedral leave their tents at night and return to their “warm beds.” According to the Daily Mail, “footage from a thermal imaging camera” shot by a police helicopter showed that the camps were almost completely empty during the nights. “It suggests the majority of the 300 'defiant' protesters at the cathedral return home or to hotels after dark to sleep in warm beds,” the Daily Mail reported.

We've had revolution in Tunisia, Egypt's Mubarak is teetering; in Yemen, Jordan and Syria suddenly protests have appeared. In Ireland young techno-savvy professionals are agitating for a "Second Republic"; in France the youth from banlieues battled police on the streets to defend the retirement rights of 60-year olds; in Greece striking and rioting have become a national pastime. And in Britain we've had riots and student occupations that changed the political mood.

Protests against the global financial system which have seen huge demonstrations in New York's Wall Street will spread to the City of London this weekend. A number of campaign organisations, including direct action group UK Uncut, say they will support an occupation of the heart of the capital's financial centre on Saturday as part of a "global movement for real democracy" to highlight social and economic injustice. The Occupy London Stock Exchange collective said a Facebook page on the protest had attracted more than 9,000 followers, with more than 3,500 confirmed attendees. Laura Taylor, a supporter of the so-called OccupyLSX, said: "Why are we paying for a crisis the banks caused? More than a million people have lost their jobs and tens of thousands of homes have been repossessed, while small businesses are struggling to survive. "Yet bankers continue to make billions in profit and pay themselves enormous bonuses, even after we bailed them out with £850bn." Occupy Wall Street protests come to London | Business
