*Update Saturday 21 January: Occupy has cancelled the mock trial of RBS scheduled for today*

Below is the spruced-up main courtroom in the disused Old Street magistrates’ court – squatted by protesters since last month – where Occupy is currently holding three mock trials. Yesterday was war crimes, today the effect of the legal aid bill on squatters, and Saturday a prosecution of RBS for fraud and the misspending of public funds. My review of the war crimes inquiry, featuring another pic from Noah, is in today’s Guardian.
