Last night’s POOR DOORS demo was a great laugh- there was an effigy of Boris, sparklers, drums and dancing. Our weekly message was being sent to Redrow Homes and the City of London: we won’t tolerate social segregation and we won’t tolerate the blatant attempts by the rich to luxuriate as they take over our areas! The cops then, however, decided to target one of our number and arrest them, and then to viciously arrest another comrade! This was an unwarranted and nasty attack by the police. They were aggressive, arbitrary and violent. They ignored the burning Boris effigy, until calling the fire brigade who sarcastically put it out with a small bucket of water (it was only embers) and laughed when they found out it was of Boris Johnson. Chants of ‘FBU!’ rang out amongst the crowds. As the protest began to near its end the police decided it was time to pounce and the crowd reacted to their behaviour with solidarity for our victimised comrades.
WE WON’T ACCEPT THEIR BEHAVIOUR. WE WON’T BE BULLIED OFF THE STREETS OF OUR CITIES BY THE COPS!
LET’S MAKE NEXT WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 12TH, THE BIGGEST, LOUDEST AND MOST EFFECTIVE POOR DOORS DEMO YET!
