Discussion in 'protest, direct action and demos' started by Maharani, May 9, 2015.
This is happening today:
Led by London Black Revs.
Become active with these? https://republic.org.uk/
Hope they get a decent turnout
Got a non Arseface link?
I looked in BR's site but nothing up there.
Main info is the demo starts at 3pm at the Tory HQ on Matthew Parker Street.
Some people are going to the anti EDL thing this morn and then heading to fuck the tories. Sounds like a really good day to be out on the streets.
I want to be there but have my daughter and don't think either will be child friendly.
Sensible. I have a feeling there'll be plenty of chances to take to the streets this summer
You might be alright at the tories one but probably sensible not to risk it...
In honour of the thread title, for those old enough to remember the Dunn & Co Tailors ads of the 1980s, I have prepared a little ditty in homage to the ad's choon:
"Fuck them all, fuck them all, fuck the mall.
The stout, the short and the tall.
We'll fuck Tory fathers and their Tory sons.
We'll fuck them up proper with knives and with guns."
i'd love the clapton ultras to turn up with their "we only attack scottish anti-fascists" banner. "Always"
Gone but not forgotten.
beginning to kick off a little
My daughter has gone...with her daughter (4 years old)...but they are seasoned veterans (Brixton squatting) with a good line in belligerence so I am not fearing too much...yet.
Looks like there has been 6 arrests. I think there are three kettles, police letting people out slowly.
Livefeed from inside the kettle
There's a few livefeeds:
Interesting that there appears to be fuck all about this in the MSM, checked out BBC, Graun, and Channel 4 sites. Nothing. Obviously it's news, but of the wrong sort. Conversely there's lots of pics on Fb:
Daily Mail and Evening Standard have covered it on their websites.
There'll be plenty living on the streets by then .
That kettle thing looks really fucking annoying . Thankfully they don't do it over here . Basically imprisoning you on the street, holding you against your will . Utter bastards .
It's done on purpose, to deter people from showing up to protest at all (lawful or not). Particularly if there are children who need picking up at a set time, or if you have medication which must be taken at rigid intervals (and with food) etc.
Erg, idiots, this is how to make sure people don't listen to what your saying
*puts tin foil hat on*
Also a good way to discredit protest if you're undercover state
Certainly seemed to be the point at which the propaganda machine chose to notice the protests and became their principal focus in reporting it.
Functionally, that's the important thing I think, rather than whether the person who sprayed it was or was not a police provocateur or a random stupid twat.
At the very least it hands the Daily Mail the opportunity to make the following headline.
Is there any evidence that it might be a provocateur? Have there been any confirmed examples of provocateurs doing similar in the UK before?
Agents of the state, in this proud nation? I simply don't beliiiieve it
