It was a little medieval to say the least. Up in their tower the rich sought sanctuary from our unruly mob of peasants hell bent on using a loud haler and distributing leaflets. They must have thought the world was ending. For 45 minutes they were prevented from leaving their tower and starved of their freshly squeezed OJ, which can be purchased from the numerous posh outlets just above gutter level.
When the revolting oiks first arrived the barricades were put up and the doors firmly locked. This kept our rabble out but it also kept the rich in, unable even to nip out for a slimline vanilla latte. It was hell!
The protest outside 1 Commercial Street is set for every Wednesday evening from 5:30. We will oppose social cleansing and apartheid in London. The tower at Commercial Street is becoming symbolic of a growing trend in gentrification of working class areas.
Unfortunately, tonight the rich got so fed up that they decided to spit from their tower at the protesters and they also poured liquid from on high. Rumours of piss circulated quickly and a raid was made on the doors! At this point some “standing beside us” people in casuals declared themselves to be police officers. Fearing a major incident they tried to calm things down. They claimed they hadn’t noticed the spraying of urine or anything else, which was fine until it started to splash over them forcing them back into the shadows.
A number of residents came out from the poor entrance in support of the demo and passers by were very supportive. We also had a fantastic show of solidarity from the Focus E15 Mothers who are fighting for decent housing for all.
Join us next Wednesday 5:30 at 1 Commercial Street.
Will it simply be a siege or will the tower be sacked!
Storm the doors!
