Cameron, Clegg, Miliband… all millionaires and all intent on making ‘necessary’ cuts.
It’s beginning to look like Occupy was just the first stage in a new wave of creative protests which will eventually be powerful enough to use each of the 1%’s weapons against themselves. As Stewart Lee pointed out in the Occupied Times a couple of month’s ago:
The Occupy Movement is occupying space and time. Well done. In doing so, it has thus far changed the news agenda, shown how random groups of people can co-operate to noble ends, and made the plastic-headed Tory MP Louise Mensch look like an out-of-touch dilettante. Again… But Global Capitalism has moved beyond space and time into a theoretical abstract region unfettered by the laws of either physics or common decency, and where there isn’t so much as a paving slab to pitch your tent on, let alone a Starbucks where you can recharge your mobiles and irritate Louise Mensch.
The basic premise laid out in a joint statement by Occupy Wall Street, Real Democracy Now, the 15-M movement and various organisations asserts a demand for a debt audit by the people, announcing:
To the financial institutions of the world, we have only one thing to say: we owe you nothing.
Mortgages, medical debts, student loans, credit cards, or even local government debts: making war against any form of illegitimate debt is the new combat for an increasing number of protest movements throughout the world.
We’re not opposed to to a bit of fair dodging now and then; with more and more people being priced out of public transport we can’t wait for the day Checky Watch goes nationwide. But we’re prepared to make an exception when it comes to hypocritical millionaire bastards!!!
During the token TUC march on Saturday Ed Miliband made it absolutely clear (for those blind enough to believe otherwise) that nothing would be different under Labour (except maybe they’d be more apologetic as they fucked us). The welfare state – hard won by a militant working class – is being whittled away in the name of bullshit austerity measures and there is as yet no concrete action to defend it. Johnny Void is right…
We are fighting for our homes, our health, our kids and in all too many cases our lives. The death toll from austerity is real and grows every day. No amount of marching to Hyde Park and listening to Ed Milliband promising more of the same will change that…. Strikes, occupations, blockades, sabotage and direct confrontation are all we have left. If the trade unions genuinely want a future that works then co-ordinated surrenders, as happened over public pensions, are a betrayal of working class people. This really isn’t a dress rehearsal, they want to take away everything we’ve won. The question is do we have what it takes to stop them?
It’s literally fight or die!
‘Oggy, Oggy, Osborne… Out! Out! Out!’ – Join the Pie March from Pudding Lane #pastytax #pastygate #ukuncut18 Apr
THE GREAT PASTY MARCH – APRIL 26TH PUDDING LANE
The march of bakers from round the country and supported by THe Sun will start at PUDDING LANE and head to Downing street . London Class war will be on the march – and we urge you all to join us. We will have different aims than the organisers but we expect our anti-toff message to go down well like a fine pastie with our comrades from the Bakers union. We’ll be having none of the class collaborationist stuff from the bossesof Greggs and other workfare slave owners. But we’ll make sure these wankers dont dominate the class war message of the march.TOFFS OUT.I doubt there’ll be any other anarchists or lefties on the march – far too snooty for such banalities – so BRING THE CLASSS WAR FROM PUDDING LANE TO DOWNING STREET APRIL 26TH . Times when I get them. A maximum turnout i needed comrades………..
Cigfran sent us another version of this classic Class War poster to work on (see previous designs here). If anyone else has any ideas for posters then just let us know (either email us at anarchistmediaproject[at]gmail[dot]com or leave a comment below), as long as we agree with the sentiment – or just find it funny – we’ll try our best to accommodate
Love In, Peace Out,
Inspired by the irrepressible Mr Bone:
SIR MATHEW PINSENT of the OLD ETONIAN ROWING CLUB has stated that Trenton Oldfield was lucky that Sir Stephen Redgrave did not get hold of him. ‘When someone tried to protest at Henley a few years ago Stephen punched a whole in the side of their canoe with his bare fist’. OOOooooer…missus……………so comrades the challenge is laid down……….fiticuffs under Queensbery rules on the tideway at Henley….where’s Jeff Monson when we need him? Such advocation of criminal damage by a KNIGHT OF THE REALM is deplorable.We must not rise to the bait…………….FORWARD TO HENLEY JUNE 30TH 2012………….
Many of you have asked the meaning of ‘punching a hole in your canoe’ . I am therefore indebted to m’learned friend Dr. Dora Kaplan of the Dept. of Semantics at the university of GOOLE for this explanation:
‘Punching a hole in the canoe’ is upper class slang for anal sex with a fag or other minor. Cognate terms include ‘oriental embroidery’ and ‘making the eight.’ Oxbridge pederasts will never directly allude to the act of sexual abuse, and avoid legal problems by using esoteric euphemism in place of direct reference. For example:
“Last year at Henley got frightfully annoyed at some beastly roughs. When he got home he requisitioned a young Tarquin and punched a hole in the canoe, and right in the middle of the drawing room, too. His lady discovered him in flagrante delicto, and was incandescent. She still hadn’t forgiven him for making the eight with her youngest nephew last Chrsitmas. Dreadful business.”
Hope this clears it up.
