CLASS WAR started yesterday at no.1 Commrrcial street with its separate entrances for rich and poor. NOW WE ARE GOING TO HAVE A WEEKLY PICKET TILL THE SEPARATE ENTRANCES ARE CLOSED JUST LIKE THE ANTI-APARTHEIED PICKET OF THE SOUTH AFRICAN EMBASSY.
Wednesday august 6th 5.30pm,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,NO APARTHEID IN LONDON
It’s an old poster but needs a new lese of life with rampant gentrification and social cleansing going on…….
Class War contacted THE LEVELLERS asking hen not to play the posh foodie fest taking place in Lewisham one of London’s poorest areas where currently 5 foodbanks are operating. Class War will be running a pop-up foodbank at festival entrance on the two days. Here is the Levellers reply:
Sorry for the delay in responding to this but it has been a bone of contention for us.
When we agreed to do the gig we didn’t actually know anything about it. We agreed to do it because frank turner and Imelda may (who we have been working with) were doing it and unfortunately nothing was flagged up about it until contracts had been signed and it became too late.
We have decided to donate the proceeds of our guestlist from our own festival to the Lewisham good bank in an attempt to show some goodwill to the people of the Area.
Sometimes these things pass us by and we are disappointed that we missed this.’
. If you’d like to help on the two days with the foodbank get in touch.
