ANTI-CAPITALIST protestors at a camp opposite St Anne’s Cathedral in Belfast yesterday vowed to continue their protest come “rain or no rain”.

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 representing the 99 per cent — students, the unemployed, workers — who are losing out to the one per cent — big businesses and wealthy people at the top of society,” said 24-year-old Gerry Carroll.
