    Anti-Capitalist Protest at St Andrew Square Gardens, 2011

 

St Andrew Square Gardens

The Camp

This anti-capitalist protest in St Andrew Square Gardens in the centre of Edinburgh began on Saturday October 15, 2011.

This is one of many protests around the world by the anti-globalisation movement which has been occupying and camping on land in prominent places in order to draw attention to their opposition to international financial institutions.

The Messages

When I passed through St Andrew Square Garden on October 24, the 9th day of the protest, I found a large sheet and pen held to the ground by four deck chairs.

Passers by were invited to express their views under the heading:

WHY ARE YOU HERE?

State your Grievances.

We want conversation.
