The Poster the London Property Barons Want to Ban

We-have-found-new-homes-for-the-rich

 

 

Today Class War’s Lisa Mckenzie was charged with public order offences for carrying this poster outside a building in which 29-year-old Texan billionaire Taylor McWilliams was supping champagne – a building that has separate entrances for people of different classes.

Today the Metropolitan Police upped the ante in the class war by the rich against the rest. Today they are censoring and intimidating the voices of the working-class on behalf of plutocrats. It’s the week when the Tories pledged to tear up what little human rights we have, the week when Theresa May announced all opponents of this corrupt political system would be chased down as “domestic extremists”.

The attack on Lisa Mckenzie’s freedom of speech is an injury to all. Class War calls for resistance against the rich and their agents.

Class War will be at the State Opening of Parliament on 27 May, ready to send a message to the ruling class: your time is up!

Texan Billionaire Friend of Royalty Targets Class War

11035686_1709846649242805_2778272594580546354_oLisa Mckenzie, Class War’s former parliamentary candidate for Iain Duncan Smith’s Chingford seat, was today charged with three public order offences for allegedly causing offence to a Texan property tycoon and friend of Prince Harry.

Lisa was arrested by Bethnal Green police on 2 April for allegedly putting a sticker on a window at One Commercial Street and holding up a poster of a graveyard with the slogan “We have found homes for the rich” – a poster that has been used by Class War for over 30 years. The offences were alleged to have taken place on 19 March. The garbled charge sheet was riddled with spelling and grammar errors.

One Commercial Street, which is owned by 29-year-old billionaire socialite Taylor McWilliams, has been the focus of a long-standing “Poor Doors” against social segregation in housing. McWilliams bought the building from Redrow late last year.

In the weeks before charging her, police made numerous visits to her home and frequently changed her bail date, which has resulting in serious disruption to her work as an LSE academic.

She said: “This is a clear attempt to stop protests against the social cleansing of London. Billionaire property developers exercising their muscle through the metropolitan police to stop and silence those of us who fight against social cleansing and social apartheid.” (more…)

BBC: Class War “sounds like trouble” – Andrew Neil

Class War made television history today with Adam Clifford’s interview on the BBC’s flagship Daily Politics programme, providing the only working class revolutionary voice in an otherwise boring election campaign.

Interviewed by Andrew Neil, Adam drew attention to the “hyper-gentrification” of London and called on the “mob to rise up” against their masters. Would it be violent? You bet it would!

He added: “I embrace working class culture and I think that we’re great. Working class people know that they’re basically slaves. So let the people rise! I don’t know if they’ll be violent.”

A befuddled Stanley Johnson, dad of London mayor Boris Johnson, voiced his agreement for the abolition of public schools and went on to admire Adam’s red dress.

Adam will attempt to canvass Buckingham Palace, which is in his constituency, on Wednesday at midday at the launch of Class War’s election manifesto.

Class War Against London’s Housing Elite

Class War beats a battle cry outside the East End’s “Rich Door”

Living in Bow in the Nineties, just one skyscraper dominated the skyline: ONE Canada Square in Canary Wharf. I would see it when I went to bed every night and when I woke up in the morning. With steam pouring from its air conditioning ducts through the night like some steam punk dragon, it winked knowingly at the council estates it towered over. It knew there was worse to come. (more…)
