This year will see the Class War crews come together with a stall in the bookfair, and a certainly provocative meeting, 12 noon – 1pm: Is Revolutionary Working Class Politics back on the agenda? Yes, say Lisa McKenzie and Martin Wright, authors, broadcasters and street activists.
“Our class is fed-up, brassed-off, demonised, ridiculed, ignored, marginalised, under bitter attack from right, left and centre…” (more…)
8 OCTOBER 2016: Class War Women’s Death Brigade SHUT DOWN Foxtons’ main office on Upper Street after three of their agents attacked Jane Nicholl during a peaceful protest (not against them!) a couple of months ago. Foxtons directly condone male violence in this case but it’s also important to remember that the housing crisis, which they are involved in propelling out of control, is a gendered crisis. #parasites

Sunday 19 June 2016: Eggs flying, banners waving, blood red smoke up coppers noses, the Class Womens Death Brigade led the attack once more against that fucking Jack the Ripper glorification wank-tent of a “museum”. Check out the Gallery! (more…)
Down with the facade! Womens Death Brigade says its time! 3pm Sunday 19 June
The Jack the Ripper Museum didn’t ask for planning permission for its shop front till AFTER they opened. If it they’d asked before, they’d have revealed that it wasn’t going to be the Museum of the Women of the East End that they’d promised the council.
Anyway, their retrospective planning permission has been refused. So the entire facade has to come off. Volunteers step this way! (more…)
26 May 2016: From the usually cuntish Evening Standard here: Anti-Jack the Ripper museum billboard defaced with black paint.
Black paint mars a billboard erected this week for a new exhibition honouring women, which aims to rival the Jack the Ripper museum in the East End.
Graffiti on the poster covers the word “Don’t” in “Don’t go to the Jack the Ripper museum”, obscures a link to a petition calling on the council to revoke its planning permission and masks the site of the exhibition, East End Women: The Real Story.
It is due to open at St George-in-the-East church tomorrow.
The Jack the Ripper museum, which opened last year in Cable Street, was targeted by protesters for “glorifying” the 19th-century serial killer.
report: “So today, despite the fucking freezing weather, 30 of us went to the Ripper Museum. Edgecumbe had appointed his partner Julian Pino (Penis) to be front of house. Therefore lots of anger and abuse as he was the one wot dressed up as the Ripper on Halloween for the selfies. Every time we hurled an insult or banged on the window he dialed 999. We had to open the door several times for the cops to go in and say “but we are the police” we’re here, stop dialing 999. We will be back for another one SATURDAY 5TH DECEMBER 2PM. Be there!”
Next demo against the Jack the Ripper Museum: 2pm Saturday 21 November 2015
