THE RICH CRAWL AND GROVEL UNDER CLASS WAR BANNERS TO ENTER THEIR SWANKY APARTMENTS

doorslatest

Amazing scenes at the No.1 Commercial Street picket last night. Two owners of the £4.5 million apartments crawled on al fours under the CLASS WAR’S infamous LUCY PARSONS banner to gain entrance to the swanky ghetto. Frustrated by the delay in the police taking action against us as they demanded they gave in and crawled before our banner. The seemingly unstoppable march of gentrification in East London has received a telling blow at last. The poor doors are still there but the public humiliation of the rich in the very building they sought to be cosseted from the poor will live long in the memory. They are not unbeatable. Bus passengers chortled, taxi drivers honked, a large crowd gathered to ask what was happening and two joined our picket. A caretaker from a block being built opposite told us to new blocks on Commercial Road were being designed the same way. Two affordable residents told us the rich had been given a leaflet detailing that our protests were illegal and would soon end. The protests are now serving as meetings…..last night I counted ten simultaneous animated conversations going on……..it looked liked an Athenian democracy!
Lucy would have been proud. She used to organise Bash the rich marches to swanky restraunts in Chicago with the sarcastic banner ‘WORKMEN BOW DOWN BEFORE YOUR MASTERS’. Last night we re-worked it ‘RICH SCUM – BOW DOWN BEFORE OUR CLASS’. One blow only for sure but when you’ve been on the retreat for so long a small victory is to be celebrated. On the election of 1945 HARTLEY SHAWCROSS the Labour cabinet minister said WE ARE THE MASTERS NOW. Not yet we aint comrades but we will fucking be. POOR DOORS NEXT WEDNESDAY 6PM – BE THERE.

  1. Hi Ian, planning to join you next week with my ukulele. I feel CW needs a paramusical wing. Have a feeling the Met will be waiting for us.
