Protest: The Occupy movement is planning a roving street festival in Leeds on October 13-14.
Occupy said it would mark the anniversary of last year's global occupations with "a weekend in which we reclaim our streets for fun and games, creativity and colour, skill-sharing and workshops, dissent and protest."
Leeds is Britain's second largest financial centre outside London yet has inner-city areas of appalling deprivation and poverty.
