Drag to set position!

Group Description

Events are springing up across the globe organised in solidarity with the Occupy Wall Street campaign in the US.

On Saturday 15th October events are planned for Birmingham city centre (Bullring, 12pm), Manchester (Piccadilly gardens), Bristol (College Green, 12pm) and at the London Stock Exchange, as well as across cities in Europe.

This group is a place for those attending these - or subsequent Occupy Together events - to share pictures of what went on. Add date, time and geolocation details to help us create a picture of the Occupy Together movement.

For help on how to add geolocation details:
1) The easiest way to add a location to your image is after you have uploaded it to your Flickr account. When looking at an individual image, click the option to the right of the image that says "add to your map". Then simply drag the bullseye to the exact location where the image was taken. Alternatively, type a location into the search box and let them find it for you. Bingo! You're image has a location.

2) Many mobile phones now allow users to add location data when the photo is actually taken. Often this involves going to the "settings" menu and instructing the phone to record location. If you decide to remotely upload the images, make sure you have this setting activated on your Flickr account.

• Note: you can tell whether or not an image has location details by looking at your photostream: if the image details include the "map" option next to the "uploaded on..." details, your image has geo-data, and can be added to our group!

If you are having trouble uploading your pictures, you can email laura.oliver [at] guardian.co.uk and we can upload them for you.

We'll feature some of our favourite portfolios and pictures from the group on guardian.co.uk and maybe in other formats, e.g. our newspapers. By posting your pictures here you a) acknowledge that you have created the pictures or have permission to do so; and b) grant us a non-exclusive, worldwide, free licence to publish your pictures as described. Copyright resides with you and you may reuse your pictures however you wish. You will be credited and paid if we make other uses of your pictures.
