Anakana Schofield – Author of Martin John and Malarky

Yesterday’s events in London with the anti-cuts march bought back memories of the Poll Tax march of March 31, 1990 and era. (Are all bad ideas confronted in March?)

Today I continue my unearthing of the history of protest in Vancouver in the 1930’s.

In 1935 it was the reading of the riot act that was the weapon, today they have given up using reading as a weapon and resort to physical containment, ie. Kettling.
