Tents in Mile End Park

Around 20 protesters from the Occupy anti-capitalist movement have been encamped in Mile End Park since the beginning of April.

On Wednesday, 9th May, Tower Hamlets Council obtained a court order to have the camp removed and this looks likely to happen within the next few days.

Whilst the Friends haven’t received any complaints from members of the public about the camp, there have been reports in the press and on various websites that the protesters have been taking fallen wood and felling sycamore saplings from the Tower Hamlets Cemetery Nature Reserve without permission.
