    One in three are unemployed.

    I know it's from the Daily Fail, but it's still interesting if correct, and not that surprising.

    And have they done a similar survey on right-wing activists? If they did, then you'd be able to tell if this is associated with leftism of being millennial.

      92% of those ARRESTED live with their parents. As in, most likely the anti-fascists, not ordinary, peaceful left-wing activists.

      It depends on what you define left wing activists. Lib Dems are left wing by the standards of the paper that supported the Blackshirts.

        33% unemployment doesn't necessarily mean 67% are employed; definitions vary, but usually (AFAIK) it just means 33% of them don't have jobs AND are actively looking for a job.

        Fair point. I suppose some chunk of them will consider work an odious capitalist tool of oppression, and thereby justify spending their days doing nothing at all.
