By George, he's done it yet again....

RESPECT Party candidate George Galloway last night won the Bradford West by-election by 10,140 votes, a swing from labour of over 5 thousand in a turn-out of around 50%. Galloway claimed that it was the "most sensational victory in by-election history". Labour MP Toby Perkins bizarrely claimed it was Galloway's appearance on televisions Big Brother which was responsible for the win. Labour’s Head of Cultural Fascism, Harriet Harperson, admitted the result was "very bad" for Labour. Galloway, who commanded a 56% share at the ballot box, said the "mammoth vote" represented the "Bradford Spring" and was a "total rejection" of the three major parties which constitute the British political system. Galloway said he thought there was a ‘tidal wave waiting to break across many parts of the country and last night it broke in Bradford. It's a wave of alienation towards the mainstream political parties and their leaders.’

Adam Boulton floundered on Sky News, outclassed by Galloway and reduced to apparently trying to oust a confession from Galloway that he was now a Muslim. CH4's Jon Snow tweeted that it was “a protest vote”. Snow's tweet actually proved how remote from reality the ruling left-wing middle class establishment is. People have quite simply had enough of the empty promises of our political class, their idealistic but wholly impractical and na├»ve politics. It was obvious why the metropolitanista were glum, in subsequent interviews, Galloway pin-pointed everything which is wrong with New labour, no real leaders anymore and no working class participation whatsoever. Galloway told BBC Radio 4's The World At One that Labour had lost touch with its traditional core voters: "If Labour doesn't go back to being a Labour Party again, it will never command the support - let alone the enthusiasm - of the kind of people who supported it for at least 100 years."

Bradford Spring-board for patriotism


It might not be readily apparent to patriots, but this is a landmark result in the fight to regain political representation for the English people. Instead of bemoaning the result, claiming he played to the Islamic bloc vote, or that sectarianism is the winner etc, we should take the massive positives which are apparent from Galloway's win.
Apathy rules amongst the English, how many times do you hear people talking about the political process and saying "I don't vote, what's the point, we'll never change anything". Well it certainly doesn’t amongst the electorate of Bradford West. Our friends in the north demonstrated to us that the three-party stranglehold over British politics can be broken. Yes, you can change things you don’t like. Yes, you can get rid of inept politicians and replace them with people who will speak out and support YOUR interests.
Bradford West could be the turning point for the English patriotic resistance movement. It should, if we have ANYTHING about us, spur English people into voting again. We should learn from it. Can we change it? Yes we can! We have been brainwashed into believing we cannot change anything and that we can't survive without the three main parties. We need to reciprocate the feeling of change emanating from West Yorkshire now, and ensure OUR VOICE is heard in the same manner as the voters of Bradford West. If we do not learn, adapt and capitalise from this safe large Labour majority being overturned, then perhaps we deserve everything we get.
All three main parties pay scant regard to the wishes of their electorate anymore. They send our children to their deaths in their foreign wars, they use our money to bail out their chums in the banking industry. They tell us we're all in it together, while they screw us into the ground with taxes, but allow their corporate peers to avoid paying their dues to the society which spawned them and facilitated their enormous wealth. Our elderly and disabled have to choose between eating and heating every winter, our cancer patients are told there is no money for drugs which could save or prolong their lives, while we send billions in foreign aid abroad. They can do it only because we allow them to. It’s obvious why they get away with it, many of us are so stuck in our ways, we are cowards in the face of change. The majority of us are still voting out of family loyalty, or allegiance to principles or policies which our three main parties have long abandoned, discarded as irrelevant. If we keep being reactionary, and moaning about everything that arises with resignation, we are finished. Instead, we should be looking to learn and adapt. We will not gain any ground while the three party system is strong and settled, that is why Bradford West is such a positive result for us, we need to perpetuate this air of political subversion.

An English Ummah

The patriotic resistance of this country needs to learn from Bradford West. It is no good individual political parties announcing manifestos when they have no electorate, that makes them just as bad as the main parties. You will never inspire the English by turning up every four years in a suit spouting political rhetoric. We need to talk to ordinary people who are disenfranchised from the system, educate them that they can make a change. Bradford West was fought on the issues which voters in the constituency wanted confronting. We need to appeal to people in the same fashion, form patriotic bloc votes like RESPECT is showing us can be done. We need to engage with the abandoned English working class, listen and address their concerns.  If we do, we might finally smash this middle class metropolitan political cartel which currently has the country in a stranglehold.

However, we have to be honest with ourselves and overcome self-inflicted obstacles first, such as our penchant for anti-intellectualism and our habit of mocking anyone who cares enough to stand up and be counted in a credible manner. We have to establish a patriotic intelligentsia, which would operate within the system it seeks to topple. We have to play the game, if we don’t, we lose, simple as that. We have to look at our approach, nationalist or patriotic groups up to now have not spoken in a language that ordinary people have responded to in any great number, certainly nowhere near enough to make a mark. We have to admit our failings and address them.  This is our Dunkirk, where we realise the path we have trodden might not have been the right one, that others are ahead of us in the game, it’s the moment where we take stock, adapt and prepare to retake the fight to our enemies.

There needs to be a clear strategy, laborious work done at grassroots level to re-engage ordinary people adrift from politics. We need to represent ourselves but we also need an electorate. The reason the main parties only address middle class concerns is because they are the only people who vote in any great number still. We need to forget small party allegiances and policies for now (all patriotic parties and groups should work together, we can sort it out afterwards). All groups with similar aims need to call a ceasefire and stop arguing with each other, the reds did it and attained power. If we are to survive, never mind prosper and regain lost ground, we need to form a bloc vote and vote according to OUR interests. Bradford West should sound the death knell for English apathy. but we have to accept that we need to learn lessons wherever they may come from, educate ourselves, re-politicise our people and most importantly VOTE.

We are people on whose backs the greatest empire the world has ever seen was forged. We are the descendants of people who paid the ultimate sacrifice for this country without a second thought. Now is the time to resist in the manner of our forefathers, in a credible and effective fashion. England is the birthplace of political radicalism, we are sons and daughters of Lilburne, of Place, descendants of Shurmer and Bevin, people who spoke out for the ordinary man in the street without fear and regardless of consequence. It is time to pay due respect to such illustrious forebears by using our heads and salvaging what is left of this once great nation and our way of life…..

Birmingham Mail prints UKR response to Maureen Messent

The Birmingham Mail today published the response from UK Resistance - Working Class Action to the discriminatory outburst by one of its columnists, Maureen Messent.

Although great offence was caused by the Messent article, the newspaper publishing the response, albeit an edited version has hopefully gone some way to reducing frustrations felt by members of the working class after reading such discriminatory bilge.

UK Resistance - Working Class Action will continue to oppose any discriminatory attacks on the working class of this country in a credible, positive and effective manner.





We are the resistance, long live the patriotic resistance!


We, the people!

Maureen Messent: An open letter to the Birmingham Mail

Dear Sirs,

Maureen Messent is correct thast many under-achieving white English children ‘have parent(s) with no incentives to encourage their progeny to succeed’. However, I have to ask, where does she think these parents were educated? Does she think they appeared out of thin air, that everyone decided en-masse they would apathetic with regards to the future of their children? The fact of the matter is that the parents, grandparents and even great-grandparents of the children she refers to are products of our education system. It is a system which has been failing the majority of ordinary working class people for decades. If this is not the case, then I must assume that Messent is implying that the English working class are in some way inferior, which I am sure she isn’t, as that would be undeniably racist.

The education system has failed, and continues to fail, generation upon generation of English working class schoolchildren. Discipline was abandoned (now reintroduced for some strange reason) in British schools along with society in general. Tried and tested successful teaching methods have been replaced with one failed experiment after another. We are now seeing the culmination of that failing in the people she so callously dehumanises with provocative language I dare her to use when referring to any other social or ethnic group. Of course, she won’t utilise similar language or stereotypes with other ethnicities. If she did, she would be breaking National Union of Journalists guidelines, but because it’s the English working class, we are viewed as fair game by Messent and unfortunately your newspaper by association.

Unlike other previously under-achieving social groups, the English working class, now a minority in its own right according to a recent survey by research group Britain Thinks, has, up to now, been continually overlooked and ignored by the system which identifies and combats under-achieving children from other minority groups. The reasons why are obvious, the English working class has been deserted by its traditional benefactors such as the church, robbed of its organs of defence such as the Labour Party or trade unions. Therefore, with no-one to speak for them, English working class concerns such as education, but also housing, welfare and employment have been routinely ignored by successive governments.

Yes, there are many white English families now receiving benefits, but to dismiss them all as workshy or unwilling to secure decent jobs is wrong, not just because it is stereotypical and discriminatory, but because it is incorrect. Anyone who lives in the real world knows that there simply aren’t the same amount of jobs there once were and the population has increased, not to mention competition from low-overhead and in some cases subsidised economic migrants under-cutting many domestic job-seekers for the few vacant positions which remain in the UK. It’s only become relevant now, because the ignorant, like Messent, often seek scapegoats when the going gets tough. Just like politicians who seek the lowest common denominator to blame for their own mistakes, the weakest in society are easier prey than the real culprits.

These people, who Messent cruelly and unnecessarily dehumanises with terminology such as ‘bovine’, are in actual fact the abandoned English working class, surplus to requirements now our manufacturing is farmed out to third world sweat-shops. With the country’s manufacturing industries in terminal decline and few employment prospects, these abandoned people have been left to rot in white council estate ghettos. Yes, a benefits culture is encouraged, but who by? To say these under-educated and therefore depoliticised people are the architects of their own destiny, to say they have engineered the situation, is laughable, not to mention crass.

What we are actually seeing is the result of abject cowardice by our politicians, who now care more about short-term gain, re-election and power than they do about the national interest and the personal development of their electorate. Well, when I say electorate, this is where the reason behind the dereliction of the working class becomes obvious: a poor education results in lower expectations, it also results in people becoming detached from the democratic process. The situation has been engineered, but not by the people Messent is keen to single-out, victimise and blame. Our industry has been allowed to crumble, in preference to the low-hassle but high exploitation of people from the third world, particularly the far-east. It isn’t in the interests of our establishment to improve education standards for English working class kids, nor kick-start manufacturing, because if they did, it would mean ordinary people would expect gainful employment. Where would the jobs come from?

I think the one interesting phrase is Messent’s use of the word ‘lumpen’, if she is using one definition of the word, then she actually agrees with me that the people concerned are dispossessed or displaced, people who have been cut off from the socio-economic class with which they would ordinarily be identified. If she is using the other definition, vulgar or common, which she obviously must be, then she is being unnecessarily offensive.

Messent branded parents she doesn’t know as ‘barely-literate’and ‘idle’, she said they are people who ‘couldn’t give a damn if their children succeed at school or not’. She stereotyped them as people in ‘subsidised homes’ which sprouted ‘huge TV screens where the rest of us shelve our books’. It became ironically farcical that she then went on to label them as ‘abysmally ignorant lumps of bigotry’, which were exactly the qualities she had herself displayed throughout this ill-thought out piece of defamatory nonsense.

The Birmingham Mail has severely let itself down by publishing such discriminatory bilge. It’s unfair, biased and if any other socio-ethnic group was singled out and publicly horsewhipped in such a manner it would be condemned and Messent would be out of a job.

Class Discrimination: The last acceptable form of bigotry in modern Britain?

Class discrimination is the last acceptable form of bigotry in modern Britain. Why? Because the people instigating this particular form of bigotry are from the ruling class. The middle class, the internationalist, metropolitan class, the class which makes the rules, decides what governmental legislation contains and therefore makes the law of the land. 
Discrimination

Under UK law, anti-discrimination legislation covers one or more of the following groups who possess what are known as 'protected characteristics'.

Anti-discrimination laws protects people who are treated differently based upon their sex, race, (colour, nationality, ethnic or national origins), marital or civil partnership status, disability, religion, sexual orientation, age, gender reallignment, maternity and even trade union membership.
People who associate with any of these groups are also protected under discrimination legislation.
The law specifies that there are three different kinds of discrimination:

1) Direct discrimination occurs when someone is treated less favourably on the grounds of race, colour, nationality or ethnic/national origin.

2) Indirect discrimination is when one racial group is given preference over another, or if a policy that applies to everyone, but it is disadvantageous to a particular protected characteristic is introduced.

3) Victimisation, occurs when someone with a protected characteristic, or an associate, is singled out or persecuted because of that protected characteristic.


Discrimination against the working class, who don't possess any unprotected characteristics, is common-place, even in equality-obsessed modern Britain. It is allowed because the working class are not a recognised ethnic group. Even though a survey conducted in 2011 found that only 17% of people in Britain still considered themselves working class, therefore are obviously a recvognised minority, discrimination because of dialect, dress or address are not included in The Equality Act 2010. Consequently, privileged and privately educated middle class millionaires are free, in some cases on working class licence-fee payers money, to abuse, mock and lampoon the working class with total and utter impunity.

It is an indisputable fact that the social groups which constitute the British class system markedly differ, some far more than others.
If they didn't our middle class friends who run Britain's elitist media wouldn't be able to point out the differences and ridicule us. 

The British class system is traditionally defined by a range of distinctions, accent, manners, background, occupation, interests or hobbies or the company one chooses to keep. There are stark differences between the working class minority and the ruling middle classes, many of which lead to discrimination. Working class honesty, which manifests itself  mostly in blunt terminology, is now regarded as vulgar. There is also blatant discrimination against people who retain their regional accent. Working class children in some schools are now being given elocution lessons to rid them of any semblance of local identity. It is quite simply social engineering, in this case dressed up as teaching pronunciation. Can you imagine the middle class establishment doing that to any other social, cultural or ethnic group?
Of course this discrimination, which ranges from mockery to virtual ethnic cleansing, is all part of the great British classless society swindle. A society where class doesn't matter, but where the toffs are still laughing at the oiks, even though they are actually people who have been deserted by the metropolitan elite that is mocking them. The point that they are actually products of the wanton and selfish desertion by what now constitutes mainstream British society which they have constructed is obviously lost on our 'betters'. The fact that they are referring to the abandoned working class from former proud manufacturing powerbases upon the backs of whom the country, empire and their cossetted, priveleged lives were built upon is obviously lost on them.
Working class people are regularly and openly mocked by an elitist middle class dominated media, the Daily Mail thought a Paddy Power advert showing 'chavs' being shot 'hilarious'. Spiked! Online thought nothing of running a headlines entitled 'Close encounters of the chav kind'. FHM magazine also joins in, printing headlines such as 'Chav Chanteuse', when ironically describing the working class 'mockney' (which does what it says on the tin) caricature adopted by middle-class Lily Allen. The sickeningly politically correct BBC, thinks nothing of leading with the needless headline 'Burberry versus the chavs' when discussing how the fashion label wishes to distance itself from working class people. It doesn't stop with the media either, online bookseller Amazon has a 'chav tag' which enables patrons to categorize working class literature and working class authors as such. There are online games such as 'Chav Hunter' which the authors of encourage users to 'take out the chavs hanging around town' with weapons.

If the working class didn't differ so obviously from the ruling middle classes, our friends in the media wouldn't be able to point it out. 
The two classes differ to the point where, as defined by the Oxford Dictionary, it can (certainly now the socio-economic and more importantly education gap between the two classes has widened) be successfully argued they are different ethnicities.
Ethnicity as defined by the Oxford Dictionary:

adjective




  • relating to a population subgroup (within a larger or dominant national or cultural group) with a common national or cultural tradition: ethnic and cultural rights and traditions leaders of ethnic communities.

We are always being told we live in a multicultural society, where everyone is equal, as working class people, we do not possess the 'political power' which is used to exclude white people per se from discrimination legislation by sociologists (i.e. power x discrimination = racism), we are a separate ethnic group entirely to the ruling majority middle class.

We are being discriminated against, terms such as 'underclass' or 'chav' are highly offensive and let's be honest, are actually purposely engineered to dehumanise us in the eyes of the general populace. If we are dehumanised the rest of the human race cannot empathise with our plight. It's that simple.




The working class have no representative bodies to credibly defend them anymore, that is until now.

UK Resistance - Working Class Action finds terminology such as chav or underclass highly offensive and deeply insulting. We do not recognise the existence of an underclass, we do however acknowledge the presence of an abandoned working class, who we stand alongside.
In this new age of equality, UK Resistance - Working Class Action finds it insulting that one group should be ignored so blatantly by discrimination legislation.

UK Resistance - Working class Action believes that discrimination legislation should apply to the English working class as it does to any other group.

We damand parity under the law of the land. We call for working class people to be recognised as the minority we now indisputably are. We believe the working class should be classified as a social group with protected characteristics under the law, particularly discrimination and hate speech laws.

It is time to end the hypocrisy.
It is time for equality and time for it now!

We are the patriotic working class resistance, long live The Resistance!

It was UKR what done it


'Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. By their fruit you will recognize them'
Matthew 7:15–23

Great news from Lambeth Palace today as Rowan Williams announced his intention to resign from the post of Archbishop of Canterbury. Williams, 61, will leave at the end of December, just in time to start a new role as master of Magdalene College Cambridge.

Obviously this news follows on from last month's UKR 'Rowan Williams Surplice to Requirements' protest outside the General Synod of the Church of England  in London.
UKR will not celebrate the exit of Williams, it was blatantly clear to us he should never have been appointed Archbishop, we ask those who are lamenting his departure and claiming he would've been better suited to another time, what time would that be? He has presided over the demise of the Church of England, not just internally with cultural fascist elements within the church being given free reign by Williams, but externally in losing relevance with the vast majority of the English people.

Of course, there is only one successor in our eyes, Honest John Sentamu. He speaks for the ordinary man and woman in the street and it is about time we had a more uncompromising brand of old fashioned Christianity to reclaim some of the ground lost to the militant athiests masquerading as secularists under the stewardship of Williams.


The fight against cultural fascism goes on, but make no mistake, the working class are coming....

We are the working class resistance, long live the resistance.

Fewer teens at literacy standard

Fewer of England's 14-year-olds reached the expected literacy standard in tests last year, final figures confirm.

But the decline from 2005 was only half as bad as the provisional statistics issued last autumn had suggested. The government said 73% attained Level 5 in English, down from 74%. In maths it was 77%, up three percentage points, and in science 72%, up two points.
There were widely varying performances in different types of school, with academies doing the worst.

UNISON the real 'union of fascists'


Edward Bone
A nurse who set up his own trade union branch and raised concerns over patient care was subjected to a 'campaign of harassment' by trade union Unison, an Empoyment Tribunal has ruled.
  The tribunal decided that Edward Bone, a nurse at the Lakes mental health unit in Colchester, was unfairly treated by the mental health partnership in north Essex on four occasions.
The tribunal heard how Mr Bone, of Nelson Road, Colchester, was labelled a “bigot” and greeted with the words “hello Adolf” by members of the public sector union.

Are we still in recession?

There is not a global recession, just ask the people of Brazil, India, China, Australia etc. In fact, in Europe the only country that is officially in recession is Greece. Apparently, and this will no doubt come as a surprise for readers, Britain came out of recession on the fourth quarter of 2009 and was officially declared out of recession 26th January 2010.
<><>
If you follow the official definition of recession then it is true, we're out of recession. However, we're not if you factor in the fact that money is decreasing in value all of the time (the inflation of which is what drives growth). People see their high streets decimated, shops are closing down all the time, only the big corporations are expanding, their monopolies that is.
Fact of the matter is, with money injections from the central bank the illusion of not being in a recession can be maintained; not only in the UK, but all over Europe and the US. This obviously comes at a price as the goods and services you have to pay for on a daily base are going up and up in price.
We have had more 'quantative easing' or in other words they're printing more money, however, especially since we dropped the gold standard, the problem with this is that we are competing with worthless shit paper against nations such as China and others in south-east Asia which can back their currency with commodities.       
None of the immediate financial problems have been solved and as long as there's no reintroduction of manufacturing in the UK, things won't change. There's also a desperate need to decrease the population by around 20%, which will be achieved with scandalous fuel prices creating a cull of our elderly and infirm, after all these people are not able to compete on the international markets; therefore a natural elimination process will most likely take place over the next few decades.

People are finally waking up, but let's hope it's not too late.

The danger of ex-public schoolboys playing at foreign diplomacy

Libyan militants in the city of Benghazi showed their appreciation of the role Britain played as part of the NATO forces which rid the country of the tyrannical rule of Colonel Gaddafi atthe weekend by desecrating British war graves in a local cemetary. Headstones in the cemetary were toppled and destroyed and a crucifix which overlooked the grounds vandalised. The graves belonged to British serviceman killed in North Africa during WWII.
Following the destruction, the people responsible brazenly posted a video of events on the Internet.
The Foreign Office said the attack was belived to have been carried out by a group of hardline Salafist jihadists,because Muslim graves were also desecrated.
The British Ambassador also apparently 'voiced concerns' (I bet that had the Libyans quaking in their boots) with members of the Transitional National Council, including Chairman Abdul Jalil and Prime Minister Abdel Rahim al-Kib.

The NTC has apparently issued an offical statement, apologising to all Christians and instructed police to make regular patrols to ensure no further attacks occur. That's alright then, let's forget the unnecessary sentiment and get on with trying to procure oil, except there seems to be a few other problems, our criminally naive public school educated leaders don't seem to have forseen. For starters, they didn't forsee a former detainee of Guantanamo Bay becoming an influential member of the NTC.
Abdel Hakim al-Hasady, an influential Islamic preacher and high-school teacher who spent five years at a training camp in Afghanistan, oversees the recruitment and training of the NTC armed forces. His commander in the field is Salah al-Barrani, a former fighter from the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, or LIFG, which was formed in the 1990s by Libyan mujahedeen returning home from Afghanistan.
Sufyan Ben Qumu, a Libyan army veteran who worked for Osama bin Laden's holding company in Sudan and later for an al Qaeda-linked charity in Afghanistan, is also training recruits.
Both Hasady and Ben Qumu were arrested by Pakistani authorities in 2001 and were turned over to the U.S. Hasady was released to Libyan custody two months later but Ben Qumu spent six years at Guantanamo Bay before he was turned over to the Libyans in 2007. Wall Street Journal
Something else they didn't forsee is that today, Cyrenaica, the eastern region of Libya, has declared itself autonomous from the rest of the country and elected a regional congress, and appointed the former King's grandson Ahmed al-Senussi as its new ruler. The announcement was condemned as a 'blatant call for fragmentation' by the ruling NTC. http://rt.com/news/libya-split-cyrenaica-autonomy-971/comments/

The Easterners have already formed their own army, the Barqa Supreme Military Council, independent from the NTC and are now ready to fight for autonomy (and it would seem control of the oil).
'Even if we had to take over the oil fields by deploying our forces there or risk another war, we will not hesitate for the sake of Barqa'  Barqa commander Col. Hamid Al-Hassi

No doubt we will have claims from the Foreign Office that these events were unforseeble, but were they? Probably to the naively trusting ex-public schoolboys we have representing us, but not to the rest of the population who inhabit the 'real world'.

Enjoy the Olympics

Fuel protests you wont hear about on the news....

On 30th January 2012 activists from Fuel Poverty Action occupied the headquarters of British Gas in Staines, Middlesex. Six activists managed to bluff their way past security, gain access to the building and barricade themselves inside two rooms. Meanwhile others blocked the front gate to the site and handed out leaflets to workers.


One of the protesters, Hannah Edler, 27 said: “Instead of paying billions to Big Six bosses every year, we could have a fairer system where our energy is owned by communities who decide how it is priced and produced. Money could be better spent on giving homes proper insulation, and investing in moving away from the dangerous fossil fuel system which the Big Six have trapped us in. To provide for everyone’s needs and stop wrecking the planet’s climate we need democratic control of our energy system!”


Phil Bentley, the Managing Director of British Gas came out to talk to the protesters at the gate. Apparently caught off guard, when asked if he thought it was fair that he got paid a huge salary, plus bonuses, while people were dying because they couldn't afford to heat their homes, he replied “of course not”.


In 2010 Phil Bentley had a basic salary of £1.3m, with share options worth up to a further £2.7m (See here). The government-commissioned Hills Fuel Poverty Review put a conservative estimate on the number of people expected to die this winter as a direct result of being ‘fuel poor’: 2,700, more than the number who die on the roads. As of April 2011 it has been estimated that, nearly 1 in 4 households (6.3 million homes) in the UK suffer fuel poverty.[1]


Energy companies routinely profit from fluctuations in wholesale cost of oil and gas (See here), passing the increases in cost on to the consumer and taking the profits from any reductions. The 5% price decreases recently announced by EDF and British Gas go back only a short way against the overall 15-20% price rises in the past two years


The action at British Gas HQ was part of a national weekend of of 'winter warm-ups', highlighting the injustice of millions living fuel poverty whilst energy companies make huge profits. Protests organised by community, environmental and Occupy groups, also took place in Lewisham, Haringey, Hackney, Swindon (outside RWE Npower office), Leeds, Manchester, Cambridge, and the City of London. They demanded a fair democratic energy system which provides warm housing for all and a safe climate for the future.
