The independent newspaper was launched to offer an alternative to the mainstream media, by providing a voice from inside the protest camp.

The inaugural edition of The Occupied Times of London, (of what promises to be a weekly paper) was launched by Occupy London protestors camped outside St. Paul’s Cathedral. Co-founded by Steven Maclean and Mircea Barbu, the independent  newspaper was created in just a week because they believed it “was important to challenge and offer a different narrative compared to the mainstream media.” The kick-off  was held on the steps of the Cathedral and the first one was given to the Museum of London, who will preserve a framed copy in their collection.
