Faced with crippling court costs in fighting eviction by the Council, and not wanting these costs to be passed on to the tax-paying people of Nottingham, Occupy Nottingham closed down the camp on Sunday 22nd April 2012, to rest then regroup for future actions.

What's it all about? See 3rd November 2011 BBC News video report.



This initial statement was collectively agreed by over 500 people on the steps of St Paul’s on 16th October 2011. Point 8 was added by the Occupy London General Assembly on 19th November 2011. After amending point 6, Occupy Nottingham collectively agreed to fully adopt the entire ‘common statement’, at the General Assembly on 25th January 2012..

  1. The current system is unsustainable. It is undemocratic and unjust. We need alternatives; this where we work towards them.

  2. We are of all ethnicities, backgrounds, genders, generations, sexualities dis/abilities and faiths. We stand together with occupations all over the world.

  3. We refuse to pay for the banks crisis.

  4. We do not accept the cuts as either necessary or inevitable. We demand an end to global tax injustice and to our democracy representing corporations instead of the people.

  5. We want regulators to be genuinely independent of the industries they regulate.

  6. We support the strikes and student actions, and actions to defend our health services, welfare, education and employment, and to stop wars and arms dealing.

  7. We want structural change towards authentic global equality. The world’s resources must go towards caring for people and the planet, not the military, corporate profits or the rich.

  8. The present economic system pollutes land, sea and air, is causing massive loss of natural species and environments, and is accelerating humanity towards irreversible climate change. We call for a positive sustainable economic system that benefits present and future generations.

  9. We stand in solidarity with the global oppressed and we call for an end to the actions of our government and others in causing this oppression.

This is what democracy looks like. Come and join us!
