"You're A Nation" Protest. Go With The Flow!

category national | anti-capitalism | opinion/analysis author Monday June 25, 2012 09:18author by En_Pissant Report this post to the editors

For those of us who like a drink, but don't see ourselves as the type to march around with signs when banksters and politicians rob us and lose us our jobs, but still feel a tear when the anthem is played after the footy, here's a way we can get some relief and at the same time show our disdain for the crooks that helped get us into this bind. Lager louts and those with distended bladders who feel like "you're a nation" still, Here's an effective protest you can believe in! Go with the flow people ;-)

For too long, an important demographic has been absent from expressing it's disdain about the bind that banksters have helped to tie us into. Our soverignty is gone, our jobs are gone, we're being treated like shit by the european troika. Don't think that joe sixpack isn't feeling the pinch too.

Here's a way we can easily protest whilst retaining our manhood. No joining of occupy hippies, No marching up and down the square then going home while fat politicians chortle, looking out their windows. None of that ineffective guff.

Just walk up to the offending bank branch, "take out alone" and pour your contempt on the institutions that helped destroy your country. Feel like "Urination" once again.

Just think of all that protesting essence that is wasted in porcelain anonymity. If hundreds of irate tub thumpers were to agree to channel that hot yellow stream of contempt towards specific targets each night after they have partied then what a protest that would be. A stream of political consciousness aimed at the heart of corrupt Ireland.

And even better, empty your rage outside selected constituency offices, and in their letterboxen. Each day these puffed up overpaid politicians have to enter their offices, they would be aware of the acrid stench of public disapproval of their craven actions.

So lets protest creatively in the best way we can, in keeping with our lifestyles. To each his/her own.

Urination once again!!

(wear a hoody though!! they may have cameras. And don't cross the streams! ;-)

Organise then tweet your success stories (anonymously) with this hashtag:
