Cops Curtail Freedom of Speech in the General Election – Class War visit Chingford

Article by Class War’s candidate for Croydon South – Jon Bigger!

Yesterday Class War came to Chingford. We marched and campaigned for Lisa McKenzie, standing against the vile Iain Duncan Smith.

We were greeted by the local Tory residents and those ready for a big change. Naturally the Tory voters looked rather shocked at our Lucy Parsons banner. (more…)

PRESS RELEASE: London’s longest running protest is under threat from the Met

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

For more information contact info@classwarparty.org.uk

The weekly Poor Doors protests outside No.1 Commercial Street in Aldgate have been ongoing over the past eight months. But last Thursday, organisers Class War were told to remove their banner featuring the four major party leaders with ‘ALL FUCKING WANKERS’ slogan underneath or face arrest.

Although eager to carry out arrests over the banner, Met backed down in apparent confusion over the legalities. The clash between the Met’s reliance on public order legislation against protests and the protesters’ on European rights rulings means the outcome will have far reaching implications for protest. The Met allege the banner was offensive but despite canvassing passers by could not find anyone other than themselves who were offended – a requirement under the legislation.

Class War’s Ian Bone said: “The Met morality appears stuck in a 1960s Lady Chattersley’s Lover era – where offence is taken on behalf of one’s servants. Do they have a remit on English language usage?

“Only four years ago a photographer was acquitted after cops raided his house of a Class War ‘Cameron wanker’ poster in the window. More recently a judge ruled that swearing at a policeman was not a crime because they heard it so often.

“We like swearing and swear that we will continue to swear in public….at policemen. Defend swearing. Tell the cops to fuck off!”

Class War argue that Articles 10 and 11 of the Human Rights Act give them the right to display the banner in a public place. Case law pertaining to section 5 of the Public Order Act 1986 also suggests that use of swear words alone is insufficient reason to arrest. See Harvey v Director of Public Prosecutions [2011] All ER (D) 143 (Nov).

THE PITCHFORKS ARE COMING – POOR DOORS TO RICH GARDENS – THURSDAY FEB. 19TH

RichGardens

Uber rich Texan aristocrat and property developer Taylor McWilliams (AKA DJ Junctional Funky (AKA Ten Gallon Texan Twat)) has ignored the opinions of residents on both sides of the building and has maintained the segregation between rich and poor.

In other news developers at One Tower Bridge are now going to deny access to their garden to poor residents. (http://www.theguardian.com/society/2015/feb/07/one-tower-bridge-social-housing-tenants-denied-access-communal-garden).

We think this is bollocks. March with us and defy the police who are trying to charge us to protest.

Fuck the Rich Doors.

Fuck Taylor McWilliams.

Fuck the Rich Gardens.

….and Fuck the police!
