There has been a huge response to the planned demonstrations on Saturday November 3rd. Here’s how the day is shaping up so far!
From Noon – 2pm we are inviting people to tour Notting Hill, using Tom Vague’s radical walking tour pamphlet as a guide. This is an area with a long (though now largely hidden) history of conflict and rebellion.
So – if you remember the ‘front line’ as it was, want to re-trace the steps of the Charitists or the Angry Brigade, or even just photograph the Spanish Civil War Memorial – now is your chance. All that walking will of course work up a thirst. Refreshments can then be taken in the following hostelries from roughly 2pm:
The Lonsdale – 48 Lonsdale Road, W11.
Portobello Star – 171 Portobello Road.
Duke of Wellington (Usually known as Finches). 179-181Portobello Road
The Castle (Usually known as the Warwick Castle) 225 Portobello Road.
Market Bar – 240A Portobello Road.
Inn on the Green – 3-5 Thorpe Close, Portobello Green.
Fat Badger – 310 Portobello Road.
Please note that everyone presenting their Radical History tour programme in The Fat Badger will receive 50% off the total costs of their drinks on Saturday November 3rd only!
From 2.30 – 3pm assemble under the westway at the junction of Acklam Road and Cambridge Gardens. As well as “Toffs Out”, those making their own banners/placards are encouraged to consider “We Can’t Afford The Rich” as a theme.
3pm – March off to David Cameron’s house
3.15pm – Any late comers can join us via Ladbroke Grove tube station
3.30pm – A minutes applause will be held outside the home of the Rt Hon David Cameron, to celebrate his remarkable achievements in this meritocratic, classless society.
The march will then head to Meanwhile Gardens, via Portobello Road, for a rally at 4.30pm.
After the speakers, all present are invited to bring their own fireworks and any suitable Guys for burning. Old Etonian Guys particularly welcome!
Radical walking guides are available locally for £1 from Rough Trade at 130 Talbot Road, W11. For those from other parts of London visit Housmans at 5 Caledonian Road, Kings Cross or Freedom Bookshop at 84b Whitechapel High Road.
