(en) Britain, CLASSWAR*, IN SUPPORT OF THE FRENCH RIOTERS (10 November 2005)

Date Sun, 13 Nov 2005 14:00:33 +0200

A bakers dozen turned up on 10th November to picket the French
embassy, to be met by at least 70 of the Met's Territorial
Support Group and Forward Intelligence Team cops.
This made doing anything more than handing out a few leaflets extremely
difficult, so it was decided rather than sit about waiting for the police
numbers (and harrasment) to increase, to pay a visit to nearby Harrods,
in case any members of the French ruling class were to be found inside.
This caused panic amongst the police, who seemed to assume criminal
intent (entering Harrods is not a criminal offence, although we are
sure a few members of the royal family wish it was!)

Cue more police overkill, two arrests for nothing, and
a tactical retreat to a nearby hostelry.

A big thanks from London Class War to everyone who
turned up, at very short notice. Vive la France!
