Anarchist Block Bites Back

October 30th, 2008 · post by Fred Goodsell · Make a comment

fight2.jpgAn Anarchist student group ‘Autonomy and Solidarity’ have made a call out for anarchists to join them at ‘Dancing on the Grave of Capitalism’ demonstration on Friday 31st October.

“All Out for Friday 31st”

“As anarchists we think it is very important to stress that this current financial crisis is not just the greedy traders or bad government policies, but an inevitable part of capitalism. The crisis isn’t this month or this year, its last year, next year, the year after that, and for as long as we allow it to exist: the crisis is unsustainable expansion based on the exploitation of workers. That’s what capitalism is. The last few weeks have just been an extreme example. Our only way out is to organise a completely democratic response amongst ourselves, first to defend against the cuts to our wages and services, and eventually to take back our planet and run it justly. By joining and endorsing the demo we hope that a wider public who are beginning to question capitalism will see there is an opposition, and that opposition has alternatives – to fight and to win. It is not intended that Friday be seen as a protest – we are not protesting; hopefully what will be clear is a demonstration of anger and serious opposition to all forms of capitalism.

“We will leave with a student’s block from Goldsmiths at 4pm if you want to join us, if not – see you at Canary Wharf station at 5pm!”
