On Saturday 28 January, Occupy London will hold a celebration of the right to protest from noon – by the steps of St Paul’s Cathedral with a host of bands, singers, poets and speakers. Expect surprise guests.
Occupy London intends to show the City of London Corporation and the government that we still fight for our right to protest peacefully by occupation and we will exercise this right by holding a celebratory event. There will be speakers who have supported Occupy’s right to protest and who are involved in challenging the unsustainable, unjust and undemocratic system that dominates our world.
Artists and performers include:
Rowdy Superstar, LiA (Life imitates Art), Havva, Max Pahlsson, Mike Faulkner, Big Sing Up Choir, David Lee Morgan, Marcina Arnold, David California, Cynikal, Kandice Holmes – Psalm Sessions, John Sloman – Ex Uriah Heep, Monster Raving Looney Party Band – What’s Next, OneNess Sankara, Catherine Brogan, Pete the Temp, Beyonder and Benjamin Crellin.
