Housing 4 the Counihans and Housing 4 All. Then #Pillowgeddon 2013: We Will not be Silenced
Saturday was interesting.
First was a small static Demo by the Counihan Campaign outside Downing Street. Unfortunately, a demo on a Saturday in Whitehall is not advisable, as there are mostly only tourists in the area. We did have one xenophobe declaiming that all British problems are due to too many immigrants in the country. He walked away fast when found to have an audience that did not agree.
Next was Pillowgeddon 2013. The first was in Hyde Park, but the people were warned that pillow fighting is assault and they would be arrested. The Pillow Fight in Trafalgar Square had more people and apparently sanctioned by the authorities. The activist part of the pillow fighters were not pleased that the fun event had been co-opted for a corporate commercial. There was even some topless pillow fighting from our younger activists for Topless Equality.
