    Hey aurora green. This bumped thread needs an update. It's now known RTS was infiltrated by at least one full time copper from the SDS. The impact of this is clearer to see now and lessons should be learnt.

    I binned all my crap years ago. And have never missed it.

    I did however find a J18 poster & flyer whilst sorting a box the other day. (I also have a Movimento das For├žas Armadas flyposter from the revolution in '74 and a few bits of EZLN tat).

    What impact, and what lessons?

    Jim Sutton/Boyling was involved for sure, but not in a significant direction/decision making role. He couldn't talk politics beyond tactics and a spot of veganism (his background story was involvement via hunt sabs). To suggest he was in any way responsible for the way J18 turned out is bollocks (if that's what you're suggesting).

    I had that 'Squaring Up to the Square Mile' booklet! Got it from Corporate Watch in Oxford. I seem to remember it had a list of the pubs different law/finance firms executives generally drank in.

    Happy 20th anniversary J18!

    I remember I was working in a bank back then and a flyer came round warning us all that there was going to be a Carnival against Capitalism the following day. I was thrilled that such things were happening. The Nineties had always seemed politically dead before that.

    At the turn of the century there seemed to be a serious movement rising. What happened to it? I suppose 9/11 didn't help.

    I often argue that J18 was more of the end of a phase of struggle than the beginning of one. It was the culmination of stuff that had been building most of the 90s. It couldn't really be pushed much further.
