Hello from all of us on camp at Finsbury Square,
We would like to provide an update, as the St Pauls site goes through the legal process, on our current status at the Finsbury Square camp. There are currently no eviction proceedings of any kind against our Occupation at Finsbury Square. We have occupied the site, peacefully, since October 22nd 2011. Since the early days we have maintained a dialogue with officers of Islington Council to ensure we comply with relevant health & safety legislation so far as possible, and in the spirit of good neighbourliness. Over the Christmas period and with our continued presence, Islington Council issued us with the following letter which showed a noticable change in tone from our previous communications.
Below are both the Council’s letter, and our response, formally agreed by consensus of a General Assembly of the camp Thursday 9th February 2012.
We invite you to read and welcome your view and thoughts.
Council Letter to Occupy London Finsbury Square:
Letter of Response by Occupy London Finsbury Square:
Three representatives from site met with officers of Islington Council to discuss matters in person between the letters, and will be attending a further meeting this Thursday 16th February.
