wot a load of Bollox
CLASS WAR AND SISTERS UNCUT CALLED THE COPS ON US!
Remember how this evening police told Maria’s supporters (about 8 women still there) we couldn’t leave court because of TAs?
What follows is such a classic example of MRA activity and the hypocrisy of charges against so-called ‘carceral feminism’.
After they’d mainly all cleared off, Maria’s supporters were allowed to leave and we began walking in dribs and drabs to the pub.
Julia Long and a woman involved with Mayday4Women were spotted by TAs walking to the pub they were already in (unbeknownst to us) up the hill from court. It was the same one we went to yesterday evening, so was the obvious choice.
Suddenly, a police van with 10 POLICE OFFICERS and another police car pull up on Julia + Sarah of M4W, who are ahead of the rest of the group, and get out. They start saying we cannot go into the pub as planned because the TAs are there and they’ve telephoned them to stop us.
Both Class War and Sisters Uncut are against what they call ‘carcarel feminism’ i.e women reporting male violence and taking part in prosecutions. Yet they called the cops on a bunch of women walking sedately up a hill to the pub they were in?
So! Basically their politics boil down to what’s best for men.
Women celebrating a victory against male violence in a pub? CALL THE POLICE! A MAN’S FEELINGS MIGHT BE HURT!
A man beats or rapes a woman? Don’t call the police. A man’s feelings might be hurt.
Class War (who had the audacity to call Helen Steel a ‘grass’) and Siblings Uncut’s politics are exposed as hypocritical bullshit even on their own terms.
They were all clearly terrified of seeing us singing songs and revelling in our victory. What’s that phrase? Women are afraid men will kill them, men are afraid women will laugh at them. #FreeTheSheWolf..... What a load of shite. CW and others (not sisters uncut - they weren’t there on either day) wandered off the Wetherspoons after court case. The screeching Terfs waved us off liked crazed loons. Cops wouldn’t let said loons leave court premises until we were out of sight, so presume they were escorted by them up the road. Cops were called to Spoons as we were having a group photo taken outside pub and some drunk twat came out and landed a punch on one of our lot. Bar manager called cops, cops saw the cctv, spoke to twat who landed the punch, asked our side if he wanted to press charges, being a good anarchist said no, twat was told to apologise or be permanently barred. Nowt to do with fucking Terfs.
