Petitioning The Scottish Parliament To Whom It May Concern

The Scottish Parliament: Let Occupy Edinburgh set up a camp in a central public area.

Setting up an occupy camp in a public area is vital for the protest for various reasons. The main one being that an Occupy protest camp draws attention on many issues that need to be considered by the public and law making authorities. Setting up a peaceful demonstration in the city square has been the backbone of the occupy movement, and since that avenue of protest has come to an end at St. Andrew's square, Occupy Edinburgh now wishes to have another demonstration without the threat of eviction! Let Occupy Edinburgh have a space which will serve as a protest! Let Occupy Edinburgh have a public space to occupy so that they can continue to raise awareness for issues, and to end corruption. Please show the public that Edinburgh still has heart! The Scottish Parliament are now urged to work with Occupy Edinburgh, and allow Occupy Edinburgh a public space to continue their peaceful protest.
