(en) Britain, Class War: THE TRAFALGAR SOVIET OCTOBER 18th

Date Mon, 14 Oct 2019 11:19:34 +0300


There is a happy circumstance in dates. On October 19th parliament is called to a special session to discuss Brexit. ---- The day before XR are holding a PEOPLES SPEECH in Traf Square to discuss the peoples response to the Queen's speech ---- XR lack nothing in ambition so October 18th offers the opportunity to go one stage further and not demand this or that but to take over the government and occupy parliament to prevent the session the next day. A short walk to freedom, a demoralised and depleted and defeated police force. ---- imagination seizes power ---- TEN DAYS THAT SHOOK THE WORLD COPS ADMIT DEFEAT.....'XR HAVE OUTFOXED US' ---- Activists are refusing to leave two-miles of London roads with at least 5,000 people willing to be arrested by the Met - who are using up to eight officers to pick up and carry each person to a police van. Thousands of activists openly mocked the police's threats that they will be arrested unless they all move to Trafalgar Square and stay off the streets (inset). But Scotland Yard's attempts to reopen two miles of streets around Parliament failed within hours. Instead Extinction Rebellion were able to set up a 'village' on the roads under Nelson's Column with its own improvised cycle lane, food stalls, community kitchen and a 'well-being sanctuary' for tired or stressed environmentalists as well as an extraordinary outdoor rave where people spent hours 'dancing their feelings' (left). A group have also placed 800 potted trees outside Parliament (right). Admitting defeat Inspector Simon Rooke, who is based in the square, said: 'They are very well organised and very well-funded. That's all I can say'. Grant Shapps, the Transport Secretary, whose building was blockaded this morning, said police were not being 'proactive' enough and were instead 'standing around the edges' as the activists grabbed control.
