Yesterday’s A to B march – RabbleLDN

A growing mood of angry defiance of the capitalist system has been in evidence on the streets of the UK in recent weeks.

The latest instance took place in Brighton on Saturday June 6, where a large anti-austerity protest in the city culminated in the storming of the former Barclays bank at Preston Circus. (more…)

Anti-regime demos in London and Cardiff as Tories take power (UK)

Sunday, May 10th, 2015

Thousands of protesters laid siege to Downing Street and marched on the Conservatives’ campaign HQ and Parliament, causing havoc which ranged across central London in a disruptive demo which saw at least 17 people arrested and a number of police injured in clashes. A small black bloc was active on the frontlines attacking police and defending the demo from police attacks. Eventually the demo was kettled and the crowd processed. There was a simultaneous event in Cardiff, Wales, and an anti-fascist demo in Walthamstow against the English Defence League, fascist-nationalist group.

Fuck the Vote! Prepare for Class War! – Demo at Tory HQ 2pm SAT 9th May – London (UK)

Thursday, May 7th, 2015

Vote or don’t vote or spoil your ballot paper, it will make no difference. Politicians will sell you and take you for their personal power. Elections are just a choice between spokesmen of the rich. We don’t have to settle for it. We’ve got to get rid of the rich!

Class War candidate for Michael Fabricant’s safe Tory Lichfield seat, Andy Bennetts, said: “We’re having more of a pantomime than an election, where career minded politicos try to make a good impression with their party in the hope of being selected to fight a seat they have a chance of winning in the future.

“No one is contesting this election to win. Not even us. This election is a lot of bollocks. Don’t vote – it is a waste of time.”

Class War took to the streets on May Day, sweeping through the citadel of class exploitation: the City of London. The police could not contain the Fuck Parade mob. Hundreds of class warriors closed down Commercial Street, Tower Bridge, London Bridge and marched to the squats of Soho, where the battle rages against gentrification.

The City was brought to a standstill. It didn’t need party bureaucracies and vanguards. It was just the will of the raging mass.

The streets are our ballot box. The mob are our votes. Our class is our party.

Get out. There will be no Government on Friday. It’s ours. Let’s take it.

Class War is supporting a post-election action by London Black Revs. In a statement, LBR says: “The polls suggest a hung parliament; where no party wins a majority of seats. If so there will be a scramble for power, with the Tories and Labour trying to cobble together enough MPs from different parties to form a government. If they call a legitimate government, they will force through the worst cuts since the Second World War.

“We think the Tories and Labour sing from the same song sheet; with the difference between austerity and austerity-lite being nowhere near enough. When no-one represents us, we must take to the streets.”

Tory HQ 2pm SATURDAY 9TH.

Stop the 'Tory Coup' (UK)

Thursday, May 7th, 2015

The Tories and their supporters in the press are preparing a post election plan to stay in office even if Labour and the SNP have more seats in Parliament.

They are planning to declare that they are the legitimate government and have the right to form an administration.

This was the meaning of the recent Times editorial which urged Cameron to ‘Occupy Downing Street’. This will be a ‘constitutional coup’ against the wishes of the electorate.

That’s why we are calling for an immediate protest if this happens:
Assemble: Saturday 9 May 1pm, Downing Street.

We cannot allow the Tories to get away with using a flagrant abuse of power to impose the most severe austerity this country has seen since the Second World War.

We will use this facebook event page to keep you updated about any changes to the time of the demonstration depending on the outcome of the election. Watch this space and, please, invite your friends and share the facebook event page.

More info:

Seumas Milne in the Guardian: “The Tories are plotting a coup in the name of legitimacy”
Owen Jones in New Statesman: “if the Tories get more seats than Labour, get ready for a Very British Coup”

Whatever happens, the People’s Assembly ‘End Austerity Now‘ national demonstration on Saturday 20 June is more important than ever.

Please keep spreading the word and lets make sure the new government feels the full force of the anti-austerity majority in Britain out on the streets in just six weeks time.

Tell the new government: End Austerity Now
National demonstration, Saturday 20 June
Assemble: 12pm, Bank of England
UK

People’s Assembly

Tory Club Smashed and Cop 4×4 Torched – Bristol (UK)

Saturday, April 13th, 2013

ONE LESS ENEMY OF FREEDOM – LETS DANCE ON HER GRAVE!

To celebrate the news of Thatcher’s death we smashed the front windows of the Conservative Club on Fishponds Road in Bristol in the early hours of this morning.

No matter how many tributes to a “great woman” appear in the media, we will never remember her as anything other than a vicious tyrant who rolled out the aggressive free market capitalism that flourishes today. The only good politician is a dead one!

Even compared to politicians in general Thatcher was one of the most hated figures in recent UK history, which is why she was under armed guard 24 hours a day until her death in the five star Ritz hotel. She led an all out assault on living conditions of the “underclass” she so openly despised, entrenching and enriching the ruling classes. We are only a few of the thousands upon thousands who are lining up to piss on her grave.

The response in Bristol to her death was immediate. The night the news broke there was a large street party in Easton to celebrate. When cops arrived to break it up they were met with bricks, bottles and burning barricades, injuring several state thugs and damaging a police vehicle. Our thoughts are with the arrested and the many more who defied the riot squad and their “pacifist” allies.

We attacked the club where Thatcher’s arse lickers hang out, but don’t get us wrong – political parties are only one face of the global dominant order. The same system of exploitation they represent churns on regardless of who hold office. Thatcher’s day saw forceful revolt against her regime (the miners strike, the poll tax rebellion and more), and today’s rulers can be sure that they also face our fury.

Thatcher actively supported and defended Pinochet’s military dictatorship in Chile. Under the new economic dictatorship of democracy, rebellious students, Mapuche indigenous warriors and anarchist-subversives continue to be persecuted by the same fascist-era laws. We greet Marcelo, Juan and Freddy in Santiago high security dungeon, solid social fighters since the time of Pinochet’s rule, and those targeted by the Chilean state’s latest frame-up who are held in Temuco women’s prison (also the scene of a recent riot).

Finally, our team takes responsibility for the recent arson on a police 4×4 in a garage off Pennywell Road in Easton. These servants of the state should never be safe on the streets from our attack, here as in Moscow, Cairo or Montreal.

FUCK THE LAW AND THE PEACE POLICE!

FOR A RIOTOUS SATURDAY 13TH EVERYWHERE!

WAR ON POLITICIANS, DEATH TO THE STATE!

unruly anarchists (in the spirit of Millbank)

Good News: Maggie Still Dead – Not Coming Back Any Time Soon – Social War Now

Wednesday, April 10th, 2013

1. Scallyway Magazine – How the Tory’s covered up the paedophile ring Saville procured for + Scallywag Magazine article on Lord McAlpine and Derek Laud

Above picture: Dead paedophile Sir Peter Morrison with Margaret Thatcher. A close aide to Thatcher, a Member of Parliament for Chester, named as an abuser by residents of children’s homes in nearby North Wales. Morrison was Parliamentary Private Secretary to Margaret Thatcher, leader of her campaign team in the Conservative leadership election of 1990 and a deputy chairman of the Conservative Party. Despite the massive internal security war being conducted against the domestic opposition and externally against the Irish Freedom Fighters, the security services allowed paedophiles this close to Thatcher and record-breaking paedophile and child procurer Jimmy Saville was her close friend: a regular visitor to her country home at Chequers and Christmas dinner guest. Thatcher would have known about the systematic abuse of hundreds of young boys and girls over decades. Rot in hell bitch.

2. TAPOL – promoting human rights, peace and democracy in Indonesia

Above picture: Margaret Thatcher with her friend and ally, the genocidal dictator General Suharto of Indonesia. US and British governments helped Suharto to power and backed his authoritarian regime. The workers and peasants unions were eradicated with the knowledge and support of Thatcher. Estimates of the death toll caused by Suharto’s repression range from half a million to three million. No-one has ever been held to account for this appalling deed.

3. Anniversary of the Pinochet coup sees heavy clashes in Santaigo and elsewhere

In Chile, Thatcher backed a 17 year military dictatorship ruled by General Pinochet which deposed the leftist president Allende and a reported 1,200–3,200 people were killed, up to 80,000 were interned, and up to 30,000 were tortured by his regime including women and children. Pinochet was close to Thatcher and she intervened on his behalf when he was held in Britain for war crimes. Massive spontaneous street demonstrations broke out throughout the country upon the learning of his death. At least 200,000 Chileans (about 2% of Chile’s 1973 population) were forced to go into exile. Additionally, hundreds of thousands left the country in the wake of the economic crises that followed the military coup during the 1970s and 1980s. Some of the key individuals who fled because of political persecution were followed in their exile by the DINA secret police, in the framework of Operation Condor, which linked South American military dictatorships together against political opponents.
