OH GAWD – I GIVE UP ON ANARCHISTS

Stuart Christie posted up a video  from  Edinburgh Anti-Cuts group ‘of the red and black anarcho-syndicalist flag replacing the union jack flying  over the Bank of scotland’. Here’s the first comment: 

Charlie Mowbray: Aw c’mon, the red and black flag is not just anarcho-syndicalist, it’s used by anarchist communists as well and I believe it was used for the first time by Malatesta and co. during the Benevento insurrection.

Whatever happened to well done lasses and lads?   Fucking Jesus!

      Chumbawamba sound pretty good with the Oysterband. That video made my day – thanks K2. Maybe we could get them in for the Platinum Jubilee? Just a thought…

    “it was a comment on a facebook page so not for general use”
    There’s something desperately sad about someone who can nitpick about the minutiae of anarchist history, but doesn’t seem to understand how facebook works!

  7. Ha ha, I think we can trump that… We put up the video on our facebook page Now or Never magazine and the first comment was all about ‘it’s not a proper anarchist flag’ ‘red… represents oppression’ etc. I’m off to watch Life of Brian: “follow the gourd, it’s a shoe… it’s a sandal… splitters” etc

    There once were three cats of Kilkenny …
