Currently approximately 250 protesters in 100 tents are camped outside St Paul's Cathedral, which is adjacent to the Stock Exchange.  (Photo by Oli Scarff/Getty Images)

    Dr. Giles Fraser, the canon chancellor of St. Paul's Cathedral in London, resigned in protest of the church's attempt to evict Occupy London protesters. While the church clergy has yet to officially endorse the eviction, the Corporation of London has taken legal action to remove the protesters from the cathedral. Meanwhile, back in the United States, around 3,000 protesters marched in Oakland to protest their eviction from the plaza in front of City Hall, and several hundred protesters marched in New York in solidarity with the Oakland activists. Oakland police say they're investigating the injury of Scott Olsen, an Iraq War veteran who suffered a skull fracture during the Tuesday protest. He was allegedly struck by a police projectile and is now in serious but stable condition.
