The Commune seem to be doing a really good job of putting forward well-thought-out, insightful, readable analyses at the moment. This leaflet that they’ve produced for the Network X gathering is typically good, and well worth reading. Looking beyond this weekend, the national day of protest that’s been called by Benefit Claimants’ Fightback for the 24th sounds like it’ll be a worthwhile step in the process of trying to build a militant claimants’ movement. Obviously, as the Commune leaflet does a very good job of making clear, nothing worthwhile is going to be achieved in a day, but it’s better than nothing. If claimants can organise a protest in Lydney Gloucestershire, then it’s possible to organise one anywhere.
Other than that, there’s a lot to be said about the way that the media have slowly caught on to the Mark Stone/Kennedy story, but I don’t have time to fully discuss that right now, will try to write something tomorrow.
