Class War


Punk Band from United Kingdom formed in 1986


Class War is an anarchist group and newspaper established by Ian Bone and others in 1983 in the United Kingdom. A reforged incarnation of Class War was briefly registered as a political party for the purposes of fighting the 2015 general election.

Events

In the 1980s, Class War organised a number of "Bash The Rich" demonstrations, in which supporters were invited to march through and disrupt wealthier areas of London such as Kensington, and Henley-on-Thames, bearing banners and placards with slogans such as "Behold your future executioners!"A third Bash the Rich event, scheduled to march through Hampstead, in 1985 was largely prevented by a heavy police presence and was acknowledged by Class War to have been a failure. This event was seen by many as a major setback for the group and many members left to form other groups or drifted away.

2010s onwards

In the 2010s, Ian Bone revived Class War as a political party. Their activities included a weekly protest about "poor doors" outside One Commercial Street in Aldgate, with Action East End and Freedom News. These protests ended in partial victory in November 2014. Group member Lisa McKenzie was found not guilty under joint enterprise for causing criminal damage.Class War also encouraged a demonstration against the Jack the Ripper Museum.Seven candidates stood for election in 2015, gaining a total of 526 votes, a total voteshare of less than 0.002%. The party was deregistered with the electoral commission in July 2015.In April 2020 Class War returned as an online daily newspaper.
