Christians for Economic Justice

Previously called Christianity Uncut

Eviction postponed

Occupy London Stock Exchange (OLSX) have been granted leave to appeal against their eviction. The case will be heard on Monday 13th February, so the eviction will not take place before that date.

This, of couse, is later than many people were expecting. The court initially refused to grant a leave to appeal, but OLSX have now successfully appealed against this refusal.

Many thanks to everyone who has signed up to join a ring of prayer if forced eviction goes ahead. The idea continues to draw media interest and to make more people aware of Christian support for radical political and economic change.

So let’s keep promoting the ring of prayer! You can sign a pledge to join it.

If you would like us to inform you of short notice developments, please email christiansagainstcuts@gmail.com with the word “subscribe” in the subject box. Please include a mobile phone number if you would like to be texted if eviction goes ahead at short notice.

There are many people who are unable to make the ring of prayer but have decided to pray about the issues involved if the eviction goes ahead. In Cambridge and Bradford, groups are prepared to hold prayer vigils to coincide with the ring of prayer in London. If you’re planning to do this anywhere else, please let us know.

In the meantime, Christianity Uncut is continuing to support nonviolent protest against the government’s cuts agenda. We thank God for the protests by disability activists and UK Uncut that hit the headlines at the weekend, as well as the government’s seven defeats on the Welfare Reform Bill in the House of Lords.

  1. I would like to have a prayer vigil here in Eastbourne and am wondering if this is possible? I will make enquiries as to whether anyone I know would join me, but if anyone on this site knows anything then please let me know. Thanks, Mark.
