Occupy London

Photographs from the birth of the occupy movement in London with the Democracy Village in Parliament Square opposite the Houses of Parliament which initially supported Brian Haw’s one-man protest against the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, but expanded to protest austerity measures by the then Labour government.
