The Dean of St Paul’s Cathedral has resigned over the Church’s handling of the Occupy London protests.The Associated Press reports that Dean Graeme Knowles is stepping down based on the criticism the church over the protest. He is the second senior figure from St Paul’s to step down, with its chancellor resigning last week.
Meanwhile, The Guardian reports that the protesters will be served with a legal letter today from the Corporation of London, asking them to remove themselves from the protest site. It is not expected that the protesters will leave, so months of eviction proceedings may now be the order of the day.
However, The Guardian also reports that Christian groups are planning on jumping to the protesters aid if they risk being evicted forcefully. Christian groups have said they would form a “ring of prayer” around the protesters if such an event occurred, preventing anyone from reaching the camp.
The protest also received support from over 20 religious figures, who gathered at the camp on Saturday to applaud the activists’ efforts.
