Minimal demands

The People’s Assembly has called for the following:
•a mass national protest at the Tory Party conference on 29 September in Manchester;
•a day of civil disobedience on 5 November in every town and city across the country;
•local People’s Assemblies to be established in every area possible;
•a national demonstration in London in the new year

All of these should be supported. But they hardly scare the ruling class to death. The City of London and the European Central Bank and European Commission are far more powerful than the Tories. Civil disobedience has been the name of the game for Cameron, Clegg and Osborne, who between them polled fewer individuals’ votes that several trade union leaders in their own union elections.

People’s Assemblies in every area could be good things, but what will they do, what power will they assume? Or are we condemned to perpetually complain about cuts and opposition to this and that? Another national demonstration in the new year? Let’s have it through the City of London and while we are there let’s relieve the burden of responsibility on the fund managers and spivs and speculators and take control of the massive wealth of our country. And let’s funnel it to real people’s assemblies with power to produce and distribute and circulate the products of our labour and lift not just the standard of living but the imaginations of the working class beyond subservience and protest.

As the world responds to the Covid 19 virus we see that only collective social action, science based government decisions & publicly funded Research & Deveopment in conjunction with public health services, can marshal a defence and cure.

The "special" relationship between Britain & US? Refusal by authorities to allow entry to British cruise ship. Instead Cuba, in the spirit of international solidarity have allowed the ship to dock & are providing treatment to Covid positive passengers.

This is the EU scorched earth policy. When health professionals & public health bodies across Europe & the world are working together, the EU is resorting to siege tactics and denying UK's access to coronavirus vaccine. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/brexit-coronavirus-vaccine-update-uk-news-symptoms-a9402976.html%3famp

Uyghur separatists in China are pan-Turkic racists, have historic links with Turkish fascist, terrorist group the Gray Wolves & long-standing support from the CIA. Pro-Islamic Uyghur militias are present in Syria with invading forces.
