Maria Gallastegui is the latest victim of the London Olympics purge on protest

by | 3rd, May 2012

THE Olympics are coming and London must be made shiny and happy. So. Occupy London Stock Exchange is removed by force. And today protester Maria Gallastegui was ordered to remove her box and tent from Parliament Square or else. The High Court has lifted an injunction preventing the removal of the last anti-war protest tent.

It’s all more than a little sad this fresh painting of the great city to please the watching IOC officials and freeloaders. We pay £12bn for a sports festival – including  many sports you would not go to the end of your garden to watch – and then get our freedoms to protest squashed. If you cannot protest in a highly visible space then what is the point of protesting?

Did we have to follow the Chinese in everything they did in 2008..?
