London braces itself for Mayday High-Jinx

The Strand: London: 1000
Many shops already boarded up, some still in progress and McShites battoned, so boarding up can be done in a hurry. Several police vans lurking and crowd barriers out in anticipation. Businesses that percieve themselves as targets are already loosing money this morning.

Strand upheaval

Well, if you can count opticians and the West Cornwall Pastie shop, then yes, they are losing business.

Some of the publishers of childrens books at 80 Strand are somewhat inconvenienced, but I dare say that the corporate multinationals which these illiterates suggest are legitimate targets - frankly I don't think that they're batting an eye.

Please campaign properly, rather than through intimidation and violence.

The original post says quite clearly that several shops have boarded themselves up fearing that they will be targets. A feeling of intimidation and threat has been created, no doubt not dissimilar to the threats made in the first stages of nazi oppression in the early 30s to ordinary shopkeepers and traders.
