Occupy Norwich vow festival will go ahead this weekend despite council ultimatum
Occupy Norwich protesters said they would still hold a festival in the city this weekend, despite being given an ultimatum to move on.
The protesters, who have been camped on Hay Hill since October, were given a notice by Norwich City Council on Wednesday to move on by Friday or risk legal action.
But today they put on Twitter that the festival would go ahead this weekend as planned.
They said: 'Now more than ever we need you to show support so come along.'
Protesters also vowed to continue the fight saying the camp was 'just the start' of the movement which has seen camps spring up across the country, the most prominent of which was outside St Paul's Cathedral in London.
