Went off to the anti-Trident anti-Iran invasion march today....I am a little sceptical, I think politics is about applying pressure or cultural change, I don't think marches cut it compared to fighting elections or direct action or ideas/culture stuff.
Nonetheless the march at least is something and a good opportunity for networking. My eldest Vince, enjoys them, especially if we work in a trip to a Chinese for some much needed calories at some point.
He had great fun climbing up statues and decorating them with anti-war Green Party placards and was encouraged, if anything, by being told not to by the police.
So marching is good but politics demands more and much more is needed to stop the drive to war, Iran could be the new Iraq if Bush is stupid enough and sadly he is stupid enough.
Tax strike anyone!
