Discussion in 'Brixton' started by smokedout, Mar 6, 2008.
... do you actually believe what they put up on indymedia....
good to see the cops cracking down on "real" crime in brixton eh...
Wtf is Reclaim Your Food?
... returning to scoop up the previous night's projectiled kebab ??
a highly dangerous picnic by the look of it, full of people eating and chatting
crack down on the bastards i say, how dare they!!!!
read the article, they were distributing free food every sunday in brixton town square
I reckon they are just watching for some tips on healthy eating, the fat porkers.
If they ate some vegan food instead of kebabs maybe some of them would lose weight.
Judging by the size of some of them on that march for police pay I think they should seriously look at putting them on a diet.
whose they? sometimes i put some stuff up on indymedia, so yes i sometimes believe it
Crackin down on munchies?
... just me being a grumpy old cynic then I guess, I'd given up looking at Indymedia, there was so much conspiraloon bollocks...
There's a video here: http://indymedia.org.uk/media/2008/03//392934.mp4
The amount of cops on the scene looks ridiculous but there's no commentary explaining what's going on.
Oh hang on, This fucking idiot police woman is claiming that giving away free food was causing intentional alarm and distress (yep, that old CJA number).
I'm still none the wiser as to what the thing's about though.
Some of them would be quite buff if they had a wash and sorted their clothes out.
I saw a cop the other day who was chewing, shirt hanging out, unshaven. Fucking mess.
you married him.....
That is outrageous. Trippy video though, the way they take them away so slowly one at a time.
The first half of the video looks like the police are just hungry....
I think the guys arrested should sue the police for damages for false imprisonment. That's the most tenuous use of section 5 I've ever seen..
+ has got to be about the biggest waste of police time for a while. Have the police really got nothing better to do - in Brixton ffs? Idiotic.
Shouldn't they have done a picnic when you know, it's a bit warmer?
Great idea, police arrests seem unnecessary though...waits for D.Boy!
... might be a long wait, when was the last time he was spotted..
It does seem rather heavy-handed and a waste of police resources but what exactly is the point of the protest or whatever it is?
That's beyond a joke, when's the next one on?
this sunday, who fancies going down
It says they are every Sunday on the Indymedia page. I wandered past one back in December or sometime then - it was bloody cold anyway. Just wlaked over to see what they were doing and got given a very nice vegan kebab and had a little chat and wandered off. They aren't really "protesting" against anything afaik, just publicising vegan food and being pro-social/communitarian in a rather windswept "square" that is usually pretty unwelcoming or empty.
I'll go next weekend just to give them a bit of support.
But it doesn't even *look* like a protest. It looks like a group of friends who decided to meet up and eat a spot of lunch in a public place. Making the police action look even worse
To be fair that fleece does outrage public decency.
I'm just kidding, good for them, I wish them well, blah blah blah.
I'd be interested to hear the official reasoning behind this. Seems well off though.
TBF I saw this the other night.
It looked like it was being organised by a bunch of muppets. They'd set themselves up right on the steps of the police station and had put a banner over the entrance of the station. Not the best of tactics if they wanted to make their point in a trouble-free way.
It seemed to be a bunch of posho looking right-on students trying to be edgy and "street" by hanging out with the local superbrew crew.
The police arresting people here does seem OTT.
I think that I would have had more definite sympathy if they had allowed us to hear ALL the actual soundtrack of what was said, rather than obliterating 90% of it with music.
Really? I wonder if it was them who put shit on the gate of Hackney police station and threw turnips and carrots at the door!
From the pictures on indymedia it looks like the banner was put there after the arrests.
