Brixton, 4 October: “The once bustling Brixton Station Road feels a very different place these days, with most of its popular cafes closed down in advance of Network Rail’s hugely unpopular refurbishment plans, which will take up to a year to complete.”

London, UK. 14th June 2016. Class War had brought their new guillotine to the protest against social cleansing in London in Berkeley Square outside the London Real Estate Forum. They were protesting at the scandal of London councils, mainly Labour controlled, speaking at the event and increasingly conspiring with estate agents and property developers to sell public land and transform estates which now house those on low incomes into homes for the wealthy… (more…)

Why protest at the London Real Estate Forum? June 14

1pm, Tuesday, 14 June, Berkeley Square, Mayfair: Come and see where the Tory Government’s Housing and Planning Act shakes hands with London Labour Councils, as local authorities sell off the land our council estates stand on to the highest bidders in London’s booming real estate market.

This is a call-out for anyone who can make noise from 1pm on 14 June 2016 at Berkeley Square, London W1J. We really need some 12 volt sound systems to make some proper noise, just turn up, bring the noiz!

The London Real Estate Forum is open from 9-5 in the heart of Mayfair, home to the filthy rich tax-avoiding bastards that are turning London into an investment opportunity for offshore capital. Their security gimps may be able to lock us out, but they can’t shut us up. (more…)

The Labour Party, Class War and Ruling Class Fear

november 2015

Watching the Labour Party tear itself apart over a tweet or two is excellent entertainment. The right of the party is reeling from the rise of the Corbynistas and the left are desperately trying to keep control of the party machinery when their MP’s are hostile to change. At the moment Ed Miliband is best remembered for the craze of Milifandom, eating bacon sandwiches really uncomfortably and that Ten Commandments monolith with his already forgotten promises carved in stone.

Red Pepper speaks to Lisa McKenzie, the candidate taking Class War to Tory Essex

time4changeThis article was originally published in Red Pepper.

With previous MPs including Winston Churchill, who sent in troops to deal with striking miners in South Wales, and ‘Margaret Thatcher’s bootboy’ Norman Tebbit, the kind of class war that usually goes down well in Chingford, Essex, is anti-organised working class Conservatism. It’s no surprise that the present incumbent is the Tory butcher-in-chief of the welfare system, Iain Duncan Smith, who enjoys a majority of nearly 13,000.

So Lisa McKenzie, contesting the rock-solid Tory seat of Chingford and Woodford Green under the anarchist Class War banner, is not, it’s fair to say, likely to top the polls on 7 May. ‘God, I’d be mortified,’ she confesses. ‘I mean, have you seen that Inside the Commons programme on the telly? I’d be gutted!’ (more…)
