‘Coalition Of Resistance’ Anyone?
We like receiving emails at NCAG so keep them coming. This one from A.Craig, Northrepps on what is becoming a common theme.
Posh Guardian readers and social network junkies may have noticed the formation of a ‘new national coalition‘ over the last few months but don’t be fooled, there really is nothing new here.
The faces are all the same, and the tired old tactics of bus in, listen, and bus out again are no different.
This is once again John Rees and Lyndsey German Ltd’s attempt to create another power base Stop The War Coalition stylee.
And they will be marching AWAY from any form of real resistance to the cuts…unless you call a quick march, a quick listen to Tony Benn, a ‘brothers and sisters’ speech from a TUC leader before it jumps into it’s Jag and drives off to play golf with an MP, a quick cuppa, then back on the bus…real resistance.
Lets make sure we build the resistance we had during the fight against the Poll Tax, not by going to London to listen to endless speeches in Trafalgar Square but here, in Norfolk, in our pubs, shops, and our schools. At our Sunday league matches, at Carrow Road, in our parks, our work places and in our local communities, and lets finally leave these dinosaurs behind once and for all.
John Rees and Lyndsey German Ltd’s STWC, established in 2001, will be holding yet another march in London, November 20th 2010.
Any guess where? Yes that’s it, another Hyde Park to Trafalgar Square ramble.
Nothing changed and most definitely NOTHING GAINED….
Norfolk Community Action Group will be holding monthly public meetings in local community centres across Norfolk shortly, with the aim of building and developing ideas and resistance to the cuts within our local communities. While we see it as important to endeavour to work with all groups on a local level if possible, we recognise the need to distance ourselves from this ‘national nonsense’.
