20-10-2004 14:41Dave was a contributor to Openly Classist, writing about his experiences with soul musicians and performers from the 1960s onwards. When we set this site up we asked Dave for a quote. This is what he gave us: http://www.openlyclassist.org.uk
"Class is such a pernicious, undermining factor in British culture because we are constantly being told, (by Prince Edward no less, as well as countless other middle-class people of moderate intelligence!), that it no longer exists. Well, it is still thriving just as virulently as any other form of discrimination, despite the token “working-class celebrity”, like the token black, or whatever, so let’s hear it for the lowest of the low, and the poorest of the poor for a change; the used, the abused and the cheated. There are millions of us. We are all different and unique, and we are somebody! And the working class everywhere has always lived under an Occupation. Welcome to the world of Openly Classist!"
Dave was a really charming bloke, loved life and living it. In return he was well loved back.

20-10-2004 07:47Four years after the initial World Social Forum (WSF) in Porto Alegre, a frame has been built to facilitate discussion, debate and exchanges, on how to build a better world. A series of meetings were held in order to explore what we can expect from this experience. The first event, titled “Future and perspectives for the ESF - WSF”, was held on Friday 14th of October 2004 in the Alexandra Palace of the English capital.

19-10-2004 23:11We agree with your appreciation of the success of the European Social Forum (Leaders, October 18). However, the storming of the stage of the anti-racist and anti- fascist session on Saturday had nothing to do with how the event was organised. It was the attempt of a tiny minority who oppose the ESF and have had no involvement in it to undemocratically impose their views on the majority and suppress other views by using physical violence.
19-10-2004 23:09We are finally building a genuinely new, creative, non-hierarchical social movement, so-far largely without the same sectarian rubbish of previous failed attempts of change. The post- discussion and the hideous way out-dated parties with no relevance to real change have tried to hijak this movement undermining what ESF was supposed to be about is desparately sad.
