Protesters set up camp in Edinburgh
Saturday had seen approximately 200 people gather in the square to support the Occupy Edinburgh campaign. The group intends to maintain a permanent presence there, and this morning there were a number of tents in evidence.
The protesters plan to remain in Edinburgh for the forseeable future as they feel the longer they stay then it will become harder for the authorities to move them on. The campaign started in America with the Occupy Wall Street group and has spread to other major cities acroos the world including London, Rome and Glasgow.
