Occupy activists stage pulpit protest in London

Four women from the Occupy movement have chained themselves to the pulpit in London’s St Paul’s Cathedral, a church official said.

The Very Reverend Dr David Ison, Dean of St Paul’s, said he was taking an evening prayer service when “four young women dressed in white” chained themselves to the structure.

City of London Police are at the cathedral but the women from the anti-corporate group are understood still to be inside.

Protesters have unfurled a large banner reading “throw the money changers out of the temple” on the cathedral steps.

The action came as the group marks the anniversary of its now-dismantled protest camp outside the cathedral.
