Things that mattered this week.
This week was an important week for everyone mainly for different reasons, for me and millions of people it was time for justice as we protested against the g20 summit and for changes in there approach to the climate,trying to get justice for the economy and against the illegal wars around the world. For other people though there was a far more important event that happened last night. In a one hour Eastenders special it was finally revealed that Danielle was Ronnies daughter and they had one moment of happiness before she was killed in true Eastenders style in a random car accident.
I have never seen people so angry and outraged who have threatened to boycott all things related to it. I wish I was talking about the protests but I'm talking about Eastenders. Hey I know it's sad I'm not knocking Eastenders I watched it myself and was looking forward to the end of the tragic storyline but it seems like we have been getting our asses kicked by some of the most violent police I have seen just so we can be portrayed as thugs. We just can't get our voices heard on massively important issues and all people care about is Eastenders. Thinking about it now there is another thing people really are angry about ;the new facebook layout.
I was at the g20 protest on Wednesday and we weren't allowed to protest from the get go. If you treat people like criminals eventually they'll start acting like them. It was our right to protest. I was outside the bank of england and was there till around 6pm and I was there when RBS got smashed and I strongly believe that the police made things 1000 times worse. If anyone was looking for trouble it was the police and I found this quote on a blog on the guardian.com;
"The trouble-makers are out in force again. Dressed in black, their faces partly obscured, some of them appear to be interested only in violent confrontation. It’s almost as if they are deliberately raising the temperature, pushing and pushing until a fight kicks off. But this isn’t some disorganised rabble: these people were bussed in and are plainly acting in concert. There’s another dead giveaway. They are all wearing the same slogan: Police."
We will go on until the rich are stopped thinking of the needs of a few and we put people before profit.
Peace in the middle east x
