Discussion in 'protest, direct action and demos' started by Jeremiah18.17, Oct 27, 2018.
Some old RTS faces.
But loads of yoghurt weaving folk song singing wooks.
On the move now.
Lots of cold bottoms.
Fash on March. Confronted them but yoghurt weavers intervened. Awaiting reinforcements.
Why these people think that the government are going to listen to them I'll never know, it's as if the anti-war protests and Occupy never happened, bizarre.

UK - polite witty slogans, a nice cup of tea and humour- nothing is done
France- CRS, tear gas and massed disroder- something will be done
Let's see what er do now they've sent a grovelling letter to the queen
The demo ended up at buck palace. They appealed to the queen to assist with their cause. We left.
Were they actually doing anything arrestable? I thought that was the whole point, rather than making appeals to vintage oppressors.
If abject begging is an offence they committed it, they're miserable pleaders
My overall thoughts.
Allowing fascists to be on the march and stopping opposition to the same by swarming me and trying to appeal to my better nature was shit and politically telling.
Turning left onto the Mall and not straight up the Charing Cross Road was ineffective.
Appealing to the Queen to save the planet seemed so naive I am speculating if it was a cunning plan to keep Anarchists off future demos and protect NVDA tactics from June 1999 style efforts.
Could do better.
I was well wrong.
From what I saw a 3 is nearer the mark.
Room for improvement
This bloke was much in evidence today. Wearing exactly same clothes.
It was at least half women (or so it seemed) which was a big plus.
I was all reminiscing about RTS days so was bound to be a bit meh.
So was this just a march then? Finishing at Buckingham Palace?
Excellent work TopCat that was like a live news feed
It does all seem tokenistic. But as I do fuck all who am I to criticise.
Of what ilk?
Alt right and fellow traveller. A legal observer mentioned their presence and I went over. Insults and scuffle. Then at least 6 people, thinking about it, all women, got in the way facing me and kept talking in a patronising calm down manner.
I may have a pic. Let me have a look.
Little fella in Boston top and brown trousers.
Looks a wrong un anyway
Is that trump flag boy?
ETA: yeah it is. I’m pretty sure anyway.
