Quakers in London have pledged to continue holding meeting for worship and uphold the protestors outside saint Paul’s cathedral as long as the protestors remain there. A facebook page (search ‘Quakers in occupy’ on facebook) has been set up encouraging Friends to continue meeting for worship outside the cathedral, at least once a week at 3pm on Sundays.
The news comes as the cathedral staff announced that they are not taking legal action against the protestors and the corporation of the city of London announced a suspension of its own legal action.
As well as attending the Meeting for Worship, some Quakers are camping with OccupyLSX and others have given material support to the protestors. Meanwhile Stevenage Quakers and Nayler have stated their support for the Christian solidarity with Occupy London statement.
Other groups have been providing their own form of support as a flashmob meditation took place on the steps of the cathedral last week.
