We are the 99%

Julian Assange speaking to the crowd

12h spent at the Occupy London Stock Exchange yesterday outside St Paul's Cathedral.
Beautiful day sitting on the church steps in the sun, watching the masses and listening to different speakers, amongst them Julian Assange.

It was all very peaceful with very little action. Kind of disappointing if you ask me, especially after reading about the riots in Rome. There was only 1 bigger "incident" which happened when the police decided to take over the top of the church steps and used force to get people to move and pushing them down the stairs. Very unnecessary.

About 3000 people came out in London, with about 500 staying in tents over night.
