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!
