The two suspects in the south London slavery case ran a Communist collective in the 1970s that worshipped the Chinese leader Chairman Mao, the Daily Telegraph has learned.
I take it that we’ll be calling the billion odd Chine3e who suffered for 30 years under Mao slaves as well then?
Or possible we should be calling all N Koreans slaves?
Actually, that last sounds about right….
The Daily Telegraph has learned that the couple arrested last week were well known to the police having set up a notorious Communist squat in 1974 and have both served prison sentences associated with their political activities.
Based in Brixton, south London, the couple set about recruiting women from other far left groups, encouraging them to engage in “revolutionary work”.
The organisation published political pamphlets calling for the downfall of Western Capitalism and also ran lectures, study groups and held film screenings.
In 1978 police raided their premises, arresting 14 members of the organisation, including the two leaders, who were later jailed after being convicted of assaulting a police officer.
After the headquarters were closed, the organisation is understood to have broken up with the two heads of the group moving into a squat in Brixton with a number of their followers.
The collective were later given social housing by Lambeth Council and moved into a large house in the Herne Hill area.
Isn’t that lovely? The local council gave them a larger house to keep the slaves in?
