  • Target the wealthy, privileged, and politically powerful. Not one of the most underprivileged areas in the UK. I'd like to cite Wikipedia on this:

    Canning Town however remains among the 5 per cent most deprived areas in the UK, with many long term residents suffering from poor health, low education and poverty.

    Especially if you're claiming to be 'woke' to the whole context of capitalism, how is it defensible to cause more disruption to the lives of some of the poorer parts of London? It just feels intrinsically wrong. It feels like self-appointed saviours from more privileged backgrounds preaching to mostly less privileged people, merrily ignoring the actual power structure of the country.

  • How about blocking Bank during peak banker commuting times, rather than Canning Town while all the cleaners are trying to get to work? (Yes, I'm simplifying a bit, but you get my point)

    How about focusing more action on political buildings? Or buildings associated with the elite? Blockade Eton, ffs, but not Canning Town.
