Report on Mayday Cup, 5-5-2002

After anti-capitalists beat the Met police, 1-0 during the Carniball action on Oxford St on Mayday, it was time to re-group and relocate to Clissold Park, north London and take part in the Looney Left Collective's annual Mayday Cup.
Twelve teams took part in the tournement (The International Bastards, Between the Lines, Sonz of Emil, The Rowdies, Hackney's Hardest, Brixton Diablos, West London 7, NorthSouth Divided United, T&G and Bharet's Dream Team). Despite early showers, the sun finally came out as a copuple of hundred people picnicked and partied and watched some fantastic football. Banners were hung that read, 'Football Belongs to Us...the Working-Class!', 'Give Capitalism the Boot!', 'Hackney's Not 4 Sale' and after some hard fought games the final was won, once again by the mighty Brixton Diablos.
Twenty rampaging anarchist under-13's had a fantastic time in the kid's final and the day was rounded off with a 3-sided free-for-all mass kick-a-bout, a fantastic and beautifully chaotic end to the tournement.
The Looney Left Collective's next footy spectacular will be the anti-Jubilee World Cup taking place over the fiorst weekend in June. Look out for details/flyers very soon, or contact the Looney Left
