This video from 1990 recounts the Poll Tax demonstration that took place on March 31st in London. It reveals a different angle to the image the mass media poured out. What it highlights is the role of the state and police in suppressing the right to peaceful protest and a willingness to provoke and criminalise those people who went to protest against this unfair Tory tax.I was 21 years of age at the time and I am proud I did not pay my Poll Tax. Thankfully a short time after the large demonstration and the tireless work of the Anti Poll Tax Federation, the Poll Tax was axed because 18 million people refused to pay - it was also the end of Margaret Thatcher, Britain’s most hated Prime Minister.
