Situated slap bang in the middle of Trafalgar Square, one of London's most famous landmarks and tourist attractions, the Climate Camp
picked a perfect place to publicise their cause.
Pitching up after the Wave march on the previous Saturday, the camp was set up to protest against the 'elitist and undemocratic' UN climate summit in Copenhagen.
After the famously heavy handed policing at this year's G20 protests in the City of London, the cops seem to have adopted a 'softly softly' approach, with the camp remaining in place on the following Wednesday.

Banners were draped around the square.
There was free tea and cake on offer!
The people behind the camp were friendly and approachable - in fact, I saw one go up to a guy taking photos to ask him if there was anything he'd llike to know about the action.
