Hashtags #polltaxriots for Instagram

Ok I'm gonna try and start a hashtag #my80sin4pics inspired by the excellent documentary about the #80s I watched by Dominic Sandbrook last night. For me as a child growing up it seemed a v turbulent time but also a time of positive change. Margaret Thatcher was the first female prime minister, Madonna was doing things her own way so both of them inspired me to try and be an independent strong woman once I grew up! Also thankfully it was the start of a more tolerant Britain and the children of Jamaican, African and Asian immigrants starting to have their own voice as British born too. I loved Desmond's on TV and British Black artists like Soul II Soul. They, along with my mates at school taught me so much about the terrible prejudices they and their parents had to put up with. Then there was the rise of Tech, we started with a ZX Spectrum and I have always embraced new technology ever since - even had a job in IT! So kids, don't presume I won't know about it as I am older, we were the first generation to shape it for you now! But there were also turbulent times with things like the poll tax riots, football hooligans, the miners strike and the horrible disease AIDS which was v scary to hear about. But it's all shaped my life and made me who I am. I am glad I grew up then. Please share! What's your #my80sin4pics ?

This made me laugh! Someone asked me to scan any riot shoots I'd done. I don't even remember taking this shot.
All I can say is it takes alot of balls to do something like this, excuse the pun!
Right back to that bottle of wine....

Anti poll tax riots, London 31st March 1990. Photo Credit Nick Hider via Flickr. The poll tax riots were a series of riots in British towns and cities during protests against the poll tax (officially known as the "Community Charge"), introduced by the Conservative government of Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. The largest protest occurred in central London on Saturday, 31 March 1990, shortly before the tax was due to come into force in England and Wales.

I think it's about time we got started building that Anti-Thatcher Museum I was on about awhile ago.
I reworked the old Tory logo into something more appropriate and I'm taking pre-orders for screenprinted t-shirts of it in order to raise some funds to get the museum off the ground. If you'd like one they're £15 from my website (link in bio)

I'm going to be working on the museum with Gavin Grindon who curated the The Museum of Cruel Designs at Dismaland, Disobedient Objects at the V&A and the museum on the Israeli occupation inside the The Walled Off Hotel. It's going to take awhile, but it's going to be good!

Onwards!

Trafalgar Square has become a focal point for many political demostrations over the years. From the 80s anti apartheid rallies attended by Jeremy Corbyn, to the infamous Poll Tax Riot in 1990 and the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament's Aldermaston March in 1958.

But did you also know that in the bottom right hand corner of the square is/was the UK's smallest Police Station which was built in the 1920s to keep an eye out on the public demonstrations. It's now been decomissioned and used as a cleaners' storeroom but next time you are there, keep an eye out for it 😊

#Onthisday in 1991, it was announced by John Major that Thatcher's poll tax would be abolished, following a mass non-payment campaign and widespread rioting. The Poll Tax Riots were a series of riots and protests across British towns and cities to oppose the Conservative governments introduction of a new "community charge". This was a regressive taxation which did not take into account an adult's income or family wealth, and that meant large families using a relatively small house saw their charges go up considerably. It was understood to save the rich money and move the expenses onto the poor, and was renamed the Poll Tax after another infamous mediaeval tax which sparked a Peasants’ Revolt in 1381. As part of a movement of mass non-payment, figures suggest that 18million people refused to pay the community charge. Legal action, including warrants, arrests and cases clogged up the courts and incurred billions in debt, but could not break the movement. This image was taken during one of these demonstrations in Trafalgar Square on 31st March 1990, where a protest escalated after a riot squad van drove straight into the crowd and knocked a young woman across the road. The riot in central London did much to contribute to the downfall of Margaret Thatcher, who resigned as Prime Minister later that year. Image: The Guardian.

Porsche 922, etching, 1990. I drew this burnt out car in St Martin's Lane, London, on the morning after the poll tax riot. The street looked like a scrap yard. #porsche #etching #polltaxriots #riot #london #etching #printmaking #iwa311

26 years since the #polltaxriots in London, we've been looking through some images online, looked mental fair play
