Last week I visited the ‘Temporary School of Thought’ at ‘Universecity’, an ‘occupied space’ in Mayfair, one of London’s most expensive quarters. (And one of the most expensive properties in the London Monopoly game).
I said to Claire: “Strange I heard nothing about that beforehand, no rumours at all…”
Claire: “Nor did I, and I know him! He explained to us afterwards that anybody that was interested in the protest was told to come to a meeting well prepared. Bring everything they would need for a few days in the cold. People who wanted to participate in the protest were warned that there was a strong possibility of arrest. After the meeting, anybody that didn’t want to take part in the protest was not allowed home and was taken to a flat and kept in hiding. This way there would be no leaks.”
