I am based in Edinburgh and a part of the OccupyEdinburgh group, which of course was started as a spinoff of #OWS.
The protest is encamped in St. Andrew's Square right outside the World HQ of the Royal Bank of Scotland and other large financial institution. The site couldn't be better!
Our camp is secured indefinitely. We had a meeting with the owners. We have to move our main tent for Christmas time, but can put it back after Jan 4, 2012. The police are not a problem, and the movement is growing all the time.
Update: We have just been given official banking by Edinburgh City Council, a world first, I believe.
Our hopes and prayers are with #OWS at this time. We hope you get stronger and stronger. We know you will!
