Occupy London harbours political ambition

Protesters against excesses in the financial sector may be looking at new ways to put their message across.

    It has been months since the global Occupy movement began in New York and spread across the world.

    In London, protesters are still camped out near St Paul's Cathedral in the hub of the city. Their tented compound has begun to look like a permanent fixture, even though its size has not grown.

    The movement needs to gather more traction, and get more people involved. Some of the organisers have even discussed turning it into a political party.

    For now, the movement's tactics remain the same, but with these new ambitions, Occupy London could soon be evolving into something else.
