(en) Britain, Class War Scotland: Class War (CW) has made the ‘Terror List', ‘an official 12-page guide to "Safeguarding young people and adults from ideological extremism".'

Date Tue, 28 Jan 2020 10:46:06 +0200

CW, there are groups in England, Scotland and Northern Ireland - have been around for around 40 years, in fact CW is one of the longest ‘politically aware' groups in the UK. I say ‘groups' because CW has no leaders, central administration, and I would argue not even ‘members'. CW is a small, loose collective, of politically minded individuals, mostly anarchist; that go by the name Class War. ---- We have no ‘terrorist' links and we're certainly not a terrorist group! In fact, like many anarchists CWS don't even class ourselves as ‘left-wing' - we're no wing, most of us don't vote and we're not even that interested in political parties. CWS think for ourselves, and act for ourselves; at least this is what ‘anarchism' means to us!
Are we guilty of ‘"ideological extremisms"'? If we think It's wrong that this Tory government has ‘killed off' (and continues to do so) over 100,000 of our disabled community, while waging a systematic class war against it's own citizens' - then yes we are ‘extremist' in our ideology that this is wrong!

But let's not debate polemics: definitions and words, as this statement and the government's ‘list' say more about the government - than it does about CW.

Let's talk about a Tory government that is paranoid (most governments are) and over-obsessed with power and control, and will use that dominance to silence anyone it thinks possess a threat.

This ‘extended scrutiny and control' (the UK has more CCTV cameras than any other country) makes us all suspects in the states mind. It's all about how the state ‘de-legitimises', undertaking it's own campaign of terror against certain ‘anti-establishment' groups' that legally and peacefully protest against the state (which as citizens is also our right.)

CW Scotland (CWS) wholly reject, we can't emphasise this more strongly our inclusion on the list and the disproportionally high number, as voiced by the group Freedom of ‘left-wing' and ‘grass root' anarchist groups' included in the "Safeguarding young people and adults from ideological extremism" guide.

To have CW and CWS added to a list that also contains Neo-Nazi and Right Wing extremist groups' with a ‘one group fits all' approach - is not only communally misleading and politically irresponsible - it is also ‘unlawful' of the government/police to do so!

‘We're far better than them............................................!'
