On the first anniversary of the Occupy London Stock Exchange camp just by St Paul’s Cathedral, Occupy London is pleased to announce the publication of its first book, which aims to demystify the financial world and provide possible solutions. Entitled ‘The Little Book of Ideas’, the free pocket sized book – written by the Economics Working Group of Occupy London – is now available for download and is also available in print, with a first run of 1,500 copies. [Editor's note: Though written in the context of the U.K., the concepts also apply in the U.S. and many other countries, as the systems described and words used are almost entirely the same here!]

The book was launched one year to the day when thousands of people came together to highlight social and economic injustice in the UK and beyond, as part of a global movement for real democracy. Yesterday’s announcement also follows Sunday’s successful action inside St Paul’s Cathedral, which saw four female protesters chain themselves to the pulpit to put pressure on the leadership of the Cathedral ‘to stop sitting on the fence and join the fight against rising inequality in the UK and beyond’.
