LIVE FEED: Riot police on standby for London Million Mask March

Looks very chaotic, pointless and dangerous. Chants include, “Revolution,” and the old standby, “Our Streets.”

But what are they about?

…Explosions are heard now, as I post. Police response.

PS

“Revolution” is a recipe for disaster. You need to build a better alternative and not tear down what exists. Mindless calls for “revolution” are as stupid and dangerous as the warmongers you claim to oppose. There is still a means for achieving power and making change legitimately, but it’s a lot harder than making a bunch of noise in the street once a year. You have to build a political movement to show up at the polls.

Ineffectual marches don’t change anything. What is the cause and effect? You make the politicians notice you? And? They notice challenges to their jobs a lot more. That’s where these mindless movements fail, and I suspect it’s by design. They claim to be leaderless, but someone decided what sort of protest would happen and on what day. As this is the only venting avenue in sight the disgruntled fall for it. It won’t work. It won’t change anything. But it manages to grab people and send them out marching in a pointless display. Tomorrow it will be over, and that’s that.

Build the alternative, or forget about it. You’re being played, million mask marchers. Your efforts are in vain.
