Of judicial officers evacuated early Tuesday, Feb. 28, the camp set up four months ago by anti-capitalist demonstrators on the steps of St Paul's Cathedral in London. The latter did not resist when the ushers began to disassemble, shortly after midnight, the fifty tents still standing. Dozens of policemen were deployed on site.

Dozens of activists, inspired by the movement Occupy Wall Street, New York, October 15, camped in front of the church building, tourist mecca of the English capital. The City of London Corporation, which administers the business district, had commenced legal proceedings to remove the "outraged". In mid-January, a judge had ordered the dismantling of the camp for reasons of health and safety and so as not to obstruct access to the cathedral. The militants are able to turn to the European Court of Justice to appeal the decision.
