Anti-capitalist protesters say their decision to end a six month protest in Nottingham isn't the end of their campaign.
Occupy Nottingham said they were packing up their camp in the Old Market Square because they faced a "difficult task" to win a legal battle.
A three-day trial to decide whether the camp could be legally removed by the city council was due to start on April 30th.
The Occupy protesters faced legal fees of tens of thousands of pounds. They said they would regroup and continue their campaign.
