Panic on the streets of London

December 10th, 2010 · posted by anon · marked as: Articles · resistance

“The overall feeling of the yesterday was anger. On both sides there was a palpable sense of gloves coming off. The crowd crackled with it throughout the day, partly built up by the excesses of the police, but most of the anger was aimed at the continual, and clear, betrayal of young people by the political class in the UK…” An eye witness report from 9th December student demonstration against the increase in fees, abolition of EMA etc, by one of the people on the streets.

Refund our Future: Reflections on the invasion of Millbank Tower

November 11th, 2010 · posted by anon · marked as: Articles · resistance

During yesterday’s protest against cuts to education crowds stormed Tory headquaters. Windows where smashed and offices destroyed. As a result we can witness the capitalist system bend and buckle in its attempts to dismiss these acts of anger as illegitimate.

Amongst the 1,000s that played some role in the invasion of Millbank Tower, where workers and students from all areas of society. We condemn both the media claim that a small group of anarchist antagonists where responsible (juxtaposed by their own images showing thousands rallying around the building) as well as the notion that the students involved are part of a privileged class. The idea that working class youth are some how exempt from the desire for education is both naive and patronising.

The Greek uprising is truly going European!

March 10th, 2010 · posted by occupied london · marked as: Articles · resistance

It is Wednesday, March 10th – the eve of the third recent strike in Greece. “I don’t really earn enough to get a cab to tomorrow’s demonstration”, writes a commentator on Athens IMC. “And there’s no public transport, as everyone is participating in the strike. Good for them. We are driving down there tonight, staying with a friend. And we’ll be using the car’s engine oil to wash the streets, our little gift to the thugs of the police’s motor-cycle Delta force.” Our friend’s from Occupied London give some context on what might happen tomorrow at the general strike, which we’ll be covering here tomorrow.
