Attendants stand by with orders of service to distribute, before the start of a special Eucharist service at St Paul's Cathedral in London. Church and local government authorities are going to court to evict anti-capitalist protesters camped outside St. Paul's Cathedral though officials acknowledged it could take weeks or months to get an order to remove the tent city. As the iconic church reopened after a week-long closure triggered by the protest, the City of London Corporation said it was launching legal action on the grounds that the protest is an "unreasonable user of the highway." Scores of tents are pitched on the pedestrianized square in front of the cathedral and near a footpath alongside the building.

An Occupy London Stock Exchange protester looks over a police officer's shoulder as protesters hold a meeting to discuss what to do after being urged to leave now that they have made their point with their protest outside St Paul's Cathedral, near the London Stock Exchange in London. The protesters who have camped outside the building in central London for six days have forced the venerable cathedral to close to visitors for the first time since World War II, church officials.
