A group of Occupy Democracy activists staged an occupation of Parliament Square in London for the third time calling for “genuine democracy free from corporate influence.”
The activists planned a 24-hour-long demonstration that is to last until Sunday morning. They are calling on the government to do more to bring an end to escalating homelessness and poverty in the UK.
Police have encircled some of the peaceful protesters as they hold a discussion, and Twitter users have reported protester arrests.
