Activist group, Occupy London, were celebrate the Jubilee, or rather protest the Jubilee, with an 'Occupy Democracy' event tomorrow.
The event will take place outside St. Paul's Cathedral before embarking on a procession to the Guildhall and the Bank of England.
Speakers will include John McDonnell MP, Donnachadh McCarthy, Peter Tatchell, Alberto Durango (IWW City Cleaners Branch), Dr Louise Irvine (NHS); plus representatives from the Jubilee Debt Campaign and Occupy London’s Real Democracy Working Group.
The group have asked supporters to:
Is our democracy democratic?
How does it work? Why doesn’t it work?
How did it get here?
And what is the ‘democratic deficit?’
The event intends to explore and celebrate the historic and continued struggle for government of and by the people. At the same time across the river, anti-monarchy group 'Republic' will be holding a loud, and highly visible (to the Queen herself) protest outside City Hall.
