ANTI-capitalism protest camp Occupy Sheffield has ‘taken possession’ of the old Salvation Army building in Sheffield.

Campaigners, who have been pitched outside Sheffield Cathedral since November, say they plan to make the empty building on Cross Burgress Street safe and secure before opening it for public use.

They also plan to host a national conference there in January and say they have renamed it the ‘Citadel of Hope’.

Their original encampment remains on the cathedral forecourt.

Occupy spokesman Jobee said: “People are going to benefit from this, the building is still going to be there and we will do it up to the best of our abilities.”
