Class Against Class Graffiti Revisited
















This is the one we wrote about here:
"‘CLASS AGAINST CLASS - MAKE THE BOSSES PAY FOR THEIR CRISIS’
Graffito on riverwall at North Woolwich, circa 1974, still there.

That’s why I like the slogan from North Woolwich painted up in white paint in the 1970’s during the recession and the harsh attack on workers lives. I like it as it remains. It has not been scrubbed away. As nothing has changed for the poor as we face a new bosses crisis in the next few years, nothing has changed with the slogan. Class against class. Old-fashioned but immutabl

We didn't have a camera on us when we visited that one and our minds were on other things that day. But the power of the www enables a snapshot to now be included!

UPDATED OCT 2014:
Still going strong on the topic of capitalist crisis. Now reads only 'Pay for their crisis'.

Some more ghost political graffiti you might be able to decipher. On the side of the ambulance station Old Kent Road there is an old squattters symbol and some fading words - can't work out what it says though.
