Labour Are Just Tory Lite - Demand the REAL Alternative
A pretty accurate assessment of the People's Assembly, "Demand the Alternative" march through London on Saturday.
Demanding the Tory-lite Labour Party as an alternative to the Tories, and expecting them to end austerity when they have already admitted that not only will they not roll back the changes made during the current parliament but they also intend to make further attacks against benefits received by the under 25's, is a waste of a good march. When getting a big-haired comedian to call for a "peaceful, effortless, joyful revolution" is your big play it is hardly radical or revolutionary. Rather it panders to the ruling class, who are quite happy for us to have all the free love we want provided we keep working hard to keep them rich and powerful.
Voting Labour is not an alternative to a continuation of neo-liberal, capitalist policies which vilify the working class. Class War is the only alternative.
