Skip to comments.The thermal images that prove 90% of tents in the Occupy camp in London are left EMPTY overnight

These are the damning images that prove the anti-capitalist protest that has closed St Pauls Cathedral is all but deserted at night.
Footage from a thermal imaging camera taken late at night reveals just a fraction of the makeshift camp was occupied.
An independent thermal imaging company, commissioned by the Daily Mail, captured these pictures after similar footage from a police helicopter found only one in ten tents were occupied after dark.
In these shots, taken late on Monday night, the presence of body heat from humans is represented by yellow and red inside the tents.
The tents that are coloured purple indicate they are colder and thus empty. The buildings behind are also yellow and red because of the higher temperatures inside.
The images suggest the vast majority of the demonstrators who gather around the cathedral to denounce capitalism during the day go home or to a hotel to stay warm at night.
But despite being an almost entirely part time protest, the activists last week forced St Pauls to shut for the first time since the Blitz, and the cathedral appears unlikely to reopen for months.
Yesterday there were calls for the police to clear the camp at night when it is virtually empty. The Corporation of London has been talking with lawyers about launching court action, but so far no formal proceedings have begun.
Councillor Alex Deane said: It is frankly farcical that most of these tents are unoccupied. It should be easier to evict part-time squatters.
They have to go. Surely even the protesters would agree that money spent on a lengthy court battle to clear the area would be far better spent on schools, hospitals, youth groups and housing.

Of course! I thought so the minute I saw all the tents. They are nearly all unoccupied! Designed to look like there are many, many at these events. There’s actually only a handful. WHO are the few proxies who supplied these tents?
Vampires have no thermal images.............
Zombies don’t generate body heat.
Lazy OWS protesters are entropic in all spectrums.
Using a Russian term, it’s a Potemkin village!
Somebody supplied extra tents? I’m so disillusioned. I thought that the empty tents meant that the OWS people were actually showing some common sense in going home for the night to a comfortable bed and a shower and coming back in the morning.
Oh oh, DM will now be occupied for exposing this.
They didn’t think anyone would find out.
The ‘planner’s ‘ plan didn’t work out like they thought.
Shouldn’t have to ask around much, they gotta be Patagonia tents.
What do they do that would generate body heat?
Ha haaaaa!!! Suckerrrrrrrs. Don't even know they've been ditched.
Yeah, if you and your fellow Councillors (sp?) had these little things called spines.
Uhhhhhh....yeah, no....are you new to this planet?
Yeah. See? That's the problem right there, Councillor. For decades, you and your fellow dunderhead polluticians have been telling people you need to tax them at preposterously high rates because they need better schools, hospitals, youth groups, housing, etc., yet, inexplicably, the schools HAVEN'T gotten better. The hospitals HAVEN'T gotten better. Housing HASN'T....well, you get the picture.
Don't you, Councillor?
Re: the tents. I’ve strolled through the McPherson Square foco several times. Most of the tents are new, and a majority of the new ones are identical model dome tents from Coleman. Someone clearly made a bulk purchase.
There are exceptions to the rule. A few people are under tarps, in pup tents, and in other brands. But those are the exceptions.
I may dress down one of these days and infiltrate at noon to see if there’s free food. Where can I get a used Che shirt? If I’m going to go undercover, I need to look the part.
Those are the tents where the orgies are going on...
Remember to not shower or shave either, a dead giveaway that will get you cut out of the herd in no time.
Occupy Mom’s Basement... when it is cold at night.
Someone with a thermal camera could really get a LOT of free camping equipment.
Yeah, but they’d have to spend a boatload of money on disinfectant in order to use it.
APONE: Go to infrared. Looks sharp people!
Hudson: [reading a motion detector] I got signals. I got readings, in front and behind.
Frost: Where, man? I don’t see shit.
Hicks: He’s right. There’s nothin’ back here.
Hudson: Look, I’m telling ya, there’s somethin’ movin’ and it ain’t us! Tracker’s off scale, man. They’re all around us, man. Jesus!
Dietrich: [looking through an infra-red scope, walks right past an Alien] Maybe they don’t show up on infra red at all.
[the Alien pounces on her and drags her up to the ceiling]
Breathe, pump blood, etc.
Even a sluggish, stoned human maintains an average 98.6 body temperature.
These protests are all symbolic so why shouldn’t their corporeal presence be symbolized by the tents and not by their actual bodies. [snide on/]
This is straight out of Sun Tzu, lighting more or fewer campfires to control the enemies perception of your numbers.
