The City of London Corporation served a legal eviction notice on the activists which gives them until 6pm tomorrow to leave.
But demonstrators, who tore down the notices as soon as they were posted, vowed they would stay and said they were prepared to fight a potentially lengthy legal battle.
The corporation, the local authority which runs the Square Mile, has expressed concern over “worrying trends” at the camp, including late-night drinking, and said companies near the cathedral had complained about losing business.
Some of the tents are pitched on the footpath next to the shops surrounding the cathedral with the remainder in the churchyard itself.
