In less than 24 hours a reported 6000-strong host of protesters will meet at London's St. Paul's Cathedral and march on the London Stock Exchange.

The news broke as the movement's semi-official Web site issued a press release confirming the protest would begin Saturday.

The protest will reportedly mirror the ongoing Occupy protests that began at Wall Street in September, seeing protesters gather at St. Paul's Cathedral at midday. Once gathered the protest is set to move to its home-base to Paternoster Square, near the LSE.

The new Occupy protest has since been confirmed as a part of the larger "world wide revolution."

The revolution will see numerous other groups join the slew of ongoing Occupy protests sweeping the globe, seeking to voice their discontent at the continuing influence of banks and corporations in global politics.

"The words 'corporate greed' ring through the speeches and banners of protests across the globe," read Occupy the London Stock Exchange's most recent statement.

"After huge bail-outs and in the face of unemployment, privatisation and austerity, we still see profits for the rich on the increase. But we are the 99%, and on October 15th our voice unites across gender and race, across borders and continents, as we call for equality and justice for all.

"In London, we will occupy the Stock Exchange. Reclaiming space in the face of the financial system and using it to voice ideas for how we can work towards a better future. A future free from austerity, growing inequality, unemployment, tax injustice and a political elite who ignores its citizens, and work towards concrete demands to be met."

The exact number of people who will actually turn out at the protest is still unknown, though 6000 individuals have currently pledged to take part via the movement's web site and Facebook account.
