"Dear occupiers, activists, residents and discontents,
thank you for work, thank you for occupying the playground and thank you for reminding all of us that we only get what we are prepared to fight for. 
Coalition cuts and austerity make the poor pay for the mistakes of the rich and they do not care as to the hurt they cause. As Oscar Wilde said they “know the price of everything and the value of nothing”. 
In trying to shut the playground the council attack the most basic pleasure in our lives, fun. This is an assault on joy by a bunch of political hoodlums who would have found a place in a Dickens novel.
Congratulations on the struggle so far and good luck.”
