Cops clear tent camp in London

Issue No. 2286

Police have cleared away the Democracy Village camp in Parliament Square in London.

The three-hour eviction on Monday evening came after new legislation specifically outlawing tents in the area.

Democracy Village started in May 2010 to oppose war and injustice. But protesters have been at the site since 2001.

Occupy London activists offered solidarity to them.
