UK police break up 'occupy' protest in London

Police in the UK have attempted to break up a three-day protest by Members of the Occupy London movement aimed at highlighting inequality in the UK.

Although the protesters had pitched their tents in Westminster police removed most of them under new laws which forbid anyone sleeping on the green opposite parliament.

Members of the movement in the UK say they will “continue to use all available tools at their disposal to force the establishment to do something about the stifling social and economic inequality in the country”.
