THE LEVELLERS ‘DISAPPOINTED’ WITH BLACKHEATH FOOD FESTIVAL – WILL DONATE TO CLASS WAR FOODBANK

blackheath

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:

Hi Ian,
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.

    SO THEY ARE STILL DOING THE GIG ANYWAY?
    and Frank Turner is an Imperialist who performed at the Olympics in 2012 in London- shows the kind of company they keep-its all about them and they dont give a fuck about challenging anything-just wanna cash in on bandwagon jumping

    • the one true religion

      Give it a rest. They signed a fucking contract without being aware of the full facts. shit happens, they’ve made some amends. It’s a shame everyone isn’t as devout as you in your perfect little dogmatic bubble.
      What a sad life you must live, sitting there judging everyone on whether they fit into your narrow viewpoint of the world or not. ISIS are recruiting you know, try them, you’ll fit right in.
