Chelsea, London. Wed 25 Nov 2015
Osborne & Little shop on the Kings Rd in Chelsea
Class War arrives - and one man goes inside the shop to tell staff why they are protesting and ask them to pass
on their complaints about tax avoidance to the company management.
Around ten people turned up for the protest as well as two sympathetic legal observers. It was hard to count the
number of police, as there seemed to be more around each corner that I looked, as well as a van full that continued
to cruise the area long after the protesters had left for work or were sitting in a pub.
The man who went inside to talk to staff comes out to join the protest outside
The Lucy Parsons banner with her quote "We must devastate the avenues where the wealthy live". Nowadays
anarchists are rather tamer and today there was no devastation.
Just some plain speaking and
a few insults
'Oi Osborne, We've had enough'
And the occasional fist was raised
A few people stopped to ask what it was about
and this young girl seemed very interested, but her mother (or au pair or nanny) pulled her away
Class War wrapped up their banner
and waved goodbye
