Class War picket the Ripper Museum
Cable St, London. Sat 10 Nov 2018
As Class War arrives at the shop, one of them opens the door and goes
into the so-called 'Jack the RIpper Museum'
but is pushed out by the shop staff
who phone the police
Class War get out their banner
to protest outside the shop
and the police who have been waiting nearby arrive
The police would like Class War to protest on the opposite side of
the road, but they are not listening
and the protest continues in front of the shop
Police go into the shop to talk with the shop staff
A woman police officer complains to Class War about their language
and tells them they can be arrested for swearing
They tell her the law. Swearing isn't an offence in itself, and you
are particularly unlikely to be found guilty of
swearing at the police, who are not generally supposed to be easily
The complaint by CE3200, her name carefully hidden, provokes considerable
Class War roll up their 'Womens Death Brigade' banner and are about
to leave for the pub
When a small group arrives to go into the shop. Class War make clear
the disgusting nature of some of the
displays which glorify the gory nature of the crimes and denigrate
the poor working class victims in a brutally
misogynist fashion, causing offence to some of their living relatives,
but they still go in, with police shepherding them
past Class War.
