Something they should still fear?

L. Reichard White, November 25, 2010

The first [British anti-Iraq-war] march in which I took part must have numbered something like a million. …this huge crowd, which was being really very crudely manhandled by the police at the edges. We stopped. We were all wedged together and looking into Downing Street, where the Prime Minister’s residency is. And nobody seemed to speak, but a kind of feral roar of popular will rose. And I tried to imagine what it must have been like for [Tony] B liar sitting inside that building and hearing that sound…. –British Novelist John le Carré on the Iraq War, Corporate Power, the Exploitation of Africa and His New Novel, “Our Kind of Traitor,” Democracy NOW!, Thursday, November 25, 2010 .




One Response to “Something they should still fear?”

  1. Not really. Not how quiet the movement has since become. Like the roar of the proletariat fighting over cheap cooking pots in Orwell’s 1984, the discontent of the masses is short-lived and misguided.
