What time did this happen? You were calling for 1-2pm meet. I was there hanging around till gone 2. I left after the edl incident and a load of sitting around on my own. We could have numbered a mighty 15 (even though I do not know enough to describe myself as an anarchist I would have been happy to be counted).
The revolution should be punctual. Or maybe I should be more patient.
Anyway divisions inside the hall: https://twitter.com/lukecooper100/status/348441323445051394
Started 1.20pm Janet – I am the most punctual anarchist I’ve ever met – but Nick Heath was there from before 9am. Meeting was short and sweet over in about 15 minutes.
Blimey. How on earth did I miss it! I did see a couple of fellas with a black & red flag who I guess was Nick. I did wander up to the tent and watch there for a while and have a quick drink.
I turned up, but very much in two minds about it. If ordinary people are trying to organise against the state surely we should be supporting them. So I chose not to join the anarchist vanguard who had – quite literally – occupied the higher ground and went for a wander. Had a few conversations then went for a pint. Came out saw 4 or 5 fash shouting “no surrender” heading towards the hall. I don’t think they were EDL. Five quid says they were British Movement. Think you lot had left by then.So there was the usual “Police protect the nazis” chants from the swappies, some poor sod got nicked, and the fash got their adrenaline rush. Hopefully those who went to the assembly got something out of it.
Is that A FIT vehicle in the background? What interest could a people’s assembly possibly hold for them………
Just a thought! http://thebadolddayswillend.blogspot.co.uk/2013/06/peoples-assembly-or-day-at-races-people.html
