The Post Bag: Letters To Squall

Doing The Demos

Squall 11, Autumn 1995, pg 86.

Dear Squall,

My wife Jose and myself are a bit long in the tooth for demos but we find it’s a great day out. You get to make the news instead of seeing it through a right- wing haze. When they do bother to report and we’ve been on the demo its hardly recognisable.

The one that you reported “this land is ours” was excellent. Squall is a damned good read, my brother Eric recommended it to me - I’m the supplier of the grapes that make him so feisty (Fruit of the Earth, Squall 10).

We’re waiting for the Reclaim the Streets at Islington which we went on. When we converged on Kings Cross tube Jose was a bit worried at the crush and the police trying to stop individuals getting through. She wanted to go home, I pointed out there was no choice but to follow the crowd. I’m glad we did, we had a great day.
