Discussion in 'protest, direct action and demos' started by PaulOK, Aug 4, 2018.
that isn't a big macho threat
The class must know
no, that's what i'd say. very hard to show solidarity with a christian bookshop in syria attacked by daesh in any meaningful fashion and tbh i'm not sure i'd want to, i'd probably find out after the xianity the establishment espoused was vile in itself.
Yes. It`s revenge. You haven`t shown any solidarity on this thread. I`m calling you out on that.
More likely to be employing the fascists.
Ralph’s not worth getting angry with just nod & smile .
Fair. Just pondering.
*pats ralph's head*
I think you might need to get a grip, I've been let down and witnessed the uaf let other antifascists down on at least 3 occasions in the last few years
They had the numbers but did their static protest and went home patting each other on the back whilst fascists were still about
Me having a view doesn't equal not showing solidarity so try getting a clue too
Oh shit it you slag. You get a grip. These matters have been covered on this thread already.
Why the abuse?
It is an expression of my annoyance .I`ll reel it in if you like.
Are you SWP Ralph?
Not even they would have him
'Y'know, our open door policy, erm...'
- Yeah, what about it?
'Well, erm, our strapline is now "We Take Nearly Everybody" '
They run a totally different kind of show. If you don't like it then out organise them.
I know they do, it's a shame they get the numbers but don't do as they say in the run up to events, a great great shame
What good is their show if it's static and preaching to the converted? Other than to recruit and sell papers?
and what about this
They get the numbers because they put the effort in. I agree that's it's limiting but if you want "the numbers" to do something different then you have to put the work in yourself. Most people who go on their demos aren't SWP supporters they're just responding to the only call out there is.
Sorry , who the fuck are you, and what exactly is it that you are attempting to articulate?
I'm asking if you are SWP.
you should be on stage.
You should be in real life.
Can you maybe stop calling everyone you don’t like slags Ralph ? Cheers.
Realise it's not an easy question. We can come back to it tomorrow if you like?
Fair. I did not really think about it before TBH.
Why do they claim they're "beating the fascists back" and "standing up to fascists" and "not letting them pass" when they do nothing of the sort??
That's my gripe, along with them going home early, just be honest about what they're about
On the Today Programme now. Including an interview with the Bookmarks worker.
Presumably the Bookmarks worker is in a Union?
Of course they will be. Do you think many full time SWP members will avoid trying to get a union position of some kind?
