(en) Britain, Class War, To The Fucking Streets – Protesters Bring Traffic To A Standstill In Spontaneous Housing March

Date Sat, 9 Jan 2016 12:01:18 +0200

https://johnnyvoid.files.wordpress.com/2016/01/rich-graveyard.jpg?w=500&h=375 Whitehall was briefly blockaded and a smoke bomb let off outside Downing Street today as over 100 people took to the streets in protest ay the Housing Bill being debated in Parliament. ---- The new laws, which will mean mass social housing sell offs, vicious rent hikes for families on even modest incomes and the scrapping of lifetime tenancies have been called the end of genuinely affordable housing in the UK. Tenants, housing workers and campaigners have vowed to fight the bill which will lead to growing numbers of people living their entire lives without ever knowing what it is like to have a secure home. ---- Today’s protests began early this morning when the vile Policy Exchange and Localis were evicted by housing activists who blockaded their offices preventing staff from entering. These two so-called think tanks – both stuffed with chinless fucking Tarquins – were responsible for proposing several of the measures in the housing bill.

Later in the day over 200 people gathered outside Parliament in a protest that was well-attended for the first week in January. After an hour or so of speeches many of those present occupied the road and then began a spontaneous march through the streets of central London accompanied by a sound system. As police scurried to keep up traffic was brought to a standstill by the boisterous crowd who defied attempts to herd them off the streets and onto the pavement.

A place to live and sleep is the most basic human need and now the bastards even want that. The time for politeness and asking for permission to protest is long over. Disobedience, disruption and disorder are all that governments understand – and for all their bluster they are fucking terrified of it. So that is what it will take to smash this new bill and every other attack on our homes. Anything else is just consent to carry on as usual. Don’t consent. Fuck shit up.
