    They can march all they want. It's not like it's going to change anything. lol

    P.S. Socialism doesn't work.
    I think we have seen that capitalism's disgusting children democracy, post-modern liberalism, globalism and consumerism, don't work.

    Thatcher and Reagan started globalisation. She is the devil. The working class are screwed because of her.
    Aren't they screwed because Labous thought it a spiffing idea to flood the country with cheap E.European labour?

    Chants of "down with Trump, down with May". Speeches addressing May and the greater threat of the far right world wide, this wasn't limited in focus on Trump, although he has acted as a catalyst for action.

    Yesss

    People that like that have always carried hammers and sickles. You can start worrying about communism when there is some new mainstream symbol for it that regular people start carrying around.

    If you can't wave a flag with a swastika on without severe reprimandations and potentially legal action I don't see why the same shouldn't be for any communist insignia. Considering how the body count for communism is 4x as high.

    Seriously though the hammer and sickle is a dead symbol. It is only carried around by leftists sects and a minority of atavists. It used to be something the common worker would parade over his Barbour shop after his boss fled due to some uprising. The symbol has no currency anymore with "normal" people, if anything it actively puts them off.

    The new sickle and hammer would probably have to be some rock music symbol or something. Hence why Podemos in Spain have co opted Ghost Busters soundtrack for their events. I don't want to be mean to my comrades but if you are a left winger and are using the symbols from 100+ years ago you are a fool, albeit a well meaning one..
