Viewpoints/Insight: In October 2011, Occupy London based their protest outside St Paul's. Fraser said that he was happy for people to "exercise their right to protest peacefully" outside the cathedral.[2] Fraser resigned as he could not sanction any policy of the chapter of St Paul's to use force to remove the protesters.[3]
