Sometimes to lose is in fact to WIN

Lets change tactics

I spent most of yesterday with my girlfirend in a police kettle, held against my will. I watched young people being brutalised by the police. Some being beaten while they were on the ground. hit many times over by these thugs they call the TSG.

During this time I and many others had to sustain abuse from officers of the law. Many of them with smug looks on their faces, taunting young people about the cold and the fact they couldn't use toilets. Despite the lies in the media about water and toilets being provided this was an outright fabrication.

This clearly from the start was the police revenge for Millbank. It was clear to me when they employed the services of the G20 commander that this was going to be brutal and so it proved to be. We only have to remind ourselves of the senseless manslaughter of Ian Tomlinson to fully understand what these thugs are capable of in kettle situations.

1000s of young and old people alike left that kettle last night while a deep sense of anger. Lets cultivate that anger. What happened yesterday was an attempt to break the spirit of our future. Lets not allow them to break us. I was encouraged when I left the police cordon last night at around 7pm t, when I witnessed the sound system blasting out Killing in the Name of by Rage Against the Machine. To hear hundreds of protesters singing the lyrics and pointing at the police

Fuck you, I won't do what you tell me
Fuck you, I won't do what you tell me
Fuck you, I won't do what you tell me

Pure heaven, lets mobilise organise and occupy. Lets bring this message to the offices of the LibDems. Lets up the game. In the words of the Zapatisa YA BASTA enough is enough LiB DEM Offices London
lib dem constituency offices london list of LibDem MPs.
