my london diary

Class War back at the Ripper

Whitechapel, London. Sat 4 Nov 2017



 A security guard pushes Jane Nicholl to make here move away from the shop front

 

 so that a customer may leave - but not without the protesters telling him what they think of men who like looking
 at exhibits about the violent murders of working class women

 

 

 Protesters complain the the exhibition does nothing to tell the stories of the murdered women, and glorifies their killer

 The victims were women who had families, and there are still people living from those families who object to the

 way they are displayed and written about here. Rachel tells the protest what is known about the victims.

 

 

 Rachel and Lisa dance as the PA system plays loud music

 

 

 

 

 

 A police officer argues with Lisa, who tells him they should be shutting down places like this, which encourage

 attitudes to women which leads to crimes like the terrible multiple rape of a young woman near here last month

 And 'Father Brannigan' continues to cast out demons

 

 

 

 Two men going into the exhibit shout insults at Father Brannigan

 who has told them to repent

 

 

 

 After around an hour the protest ended and most of us went to a nearby pub where

 we were disturbed half an hour later by a police raid. Apparently two anti-trans feminists had come to view
the protest, hoping to see a person they complained to the police had assaulted one of them at a meeting the
previous month, and had then phoned the police. And the woman serving behind the bar declared herself as
a special constable and tried to stop me and others taking photographs. Although she failed to do so, I have
decided not to publish these pictures until the case is resolved. But it's a pub I won't drink in again.
