Council officials in Glasgow will go to court today in a bid to evict anti-capitalist protesters from the city centre.

The council wants them removed from George Square before ceremonies to mark Armistice Day on the 11th November, Remembrance Sunday on the 13th and the switch-on if the city's Christmas lights a week later.

If an eviction order is granted at a court hearing, Sheriff's Officers will be sent in to clear the square of the "Occupy Glasgow" protesters, unless they agree to leave as instructed.

The Glasgow protest mirrors demonstrations outside St Paul's Cathedral in London, St Andrew's Square in Edinburgh and others around the world.

Tents have been pitched outside the council chambers in George Square since October 15th.

The council-owned square is one of Glasgow's most distinctive landmarks. Recently, it played host to Hollywood star Brad Pitt when it was used as the backdrop for the filming of his forthcoming zombie thriller, entitled World War Z.

Spend the night and wake up with a Glasgow smile in the morning.
