People in Belfast can come together for a common purpose
ANTI-CAPITALIST protestors at a camp opposite St Anne’s Cathedral in Belfast yesterday vowed to continue their protest come “rain or no rain”. They have been camping out in Writer’s Square, in the Cathedral Quarter since last Friday (Oct 21).
#OccupyBelfast: WE ARE THE 99%
The Occupy Belfast group — following in the footsteps of anti-capitalist movements Occupy Wall Street and Occupy London — say they have received messages of support from similar groups in England, Spain, Australia and the USA. The messages, received through Facebook and Livestream, have encouraged the group to continue with their protest in Writer’s Square, in the Cathedral Quarter.
“We’re used to Belfast being divided into orange and green,” Mr Carroll said, “but no matter what community you’re from, we’re all affected by this.
“Occupy Belfast shows the world that people in Belfast can come together for a common purpose.”
