Brazil v Ireland Holloway Road Protest
As I mentioned in my introductory post, I am moving from the shadowy world of extra-parliamentary activities and into the bright lights of the public sphere. I am campaigning. Utilizing the media to press home South London’s story. Most of all, I’m aiming for international exposure.
After much negotiation and the twinning arrangement between South London & West Belfast, we managed to secure the use of a first floor flat on the Holloway Road (Islington, heart of the British Empire) from a Northern Irish dissident. I then set about staging a rooftop protest late last night – whilst thousands of football fans filed past having left the Brazil v Ireland match, held at the Emirates Stadium, home of South London abandonists (Woolwich) Arsenal FC…
The reaction was mixed, ranging from vile north London hooligans chanting “Jump! Jump! Jump!” to messages of support from my fellow South Londoners (full marks & representations to them for their bravery). I also got respect from the Brazilian & Irish fans, probably because of the lingering memory of their own imperialistic oppressions.
But the most disturbing thing was the sheer number of north London children hurling abuse at me. Sad to her their little voices so full of hatred. Sad to hear them swearing their traps off. Sad to see the blossoming of their ignorance. Sad…. sad to think of bludgeoning their faces off in the revolutionary War of Independence.
You have to break a few eggs to guillotine an omelette. Peace. Over & Out.
