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

Members of the Class War, a hard-left anarchists group, were seen protesting outside the offices of upmarket estate agents Foxtons in Islington today, 8 October 2016.

UPDATED 30 JULY 2016: Brilliant solidarity from the Blacklist Support Group, and the Bakers Union and others with UVW members on strike at 100 Wood Street.

We’ll be back on the picket line on Monday, 1st August 2016 for day 55! (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…)

Demo against the the Ripper museum, London 21 November 2015

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!”

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…)
