The organiser of an anti-gentrification protest in east London has accused the owners of a breakfast cereal cafe targeted by protesters of “milking” the publicity.
Ian Bone, the founder of Class War, the anarchist group behind Saturday evening’s Fuck Parade event in Shoreditch, also vowed to continue focusing on independent businesses at similar protests planned nationwide.
Bone defended those who attacked the Cereal Killer Cafe with paint bombs and graffiti because they had helped publicise the movement across the globe. “Everyone on that march, who are so pissed off with the lot they’ve got in life, was fighting back. I totally understand and support it,” said Bone, who founded Class War in 1982.
