LATER this month a march and demonstration will be held in Boston, Lincolnshire. Largely organised via a Facebook group, local workers will be protesting against the effects of mass immigration on the town.
The Third Way Think Tank understands that those behind the PeacefulBoston Protest March are not against individual migrant workers, but it is aimed at the local council and government.
As one of the organizers – Dean Everitt – put it “the people of Boston ain’t happy. Things need to change as this immigration madness cannot carry on.” Thus the demonstration is “to protest at the mass immigration forced upon us.”
Locals have also gone out of their way to say that the demonstration will be peaceful.
With this in mind, we wholeheartedly support the local people of Boston in their stand against mass immigration.
In doing so we would point out that we have no beef with ordinary migrant workers. After all, many of them are just simply trying to provide for themselves and their families.
Our real problem is with the unjust capitalist system.
We agree with the sentiments expressed by one worker against mass immigration who pointed the finger of blame at the evils of capitalism (or of ‘Corporatism’ as he called it):
“I believe the real problem is Corporatism. This is the system in which law and policy are changed not for the good of the people but for the good of the corporations seeking to profit from the change. Immigration policy has in the past been changed as a result of corporate influence. This is Corporatism. The situation in Boston may well have been caused by corporatism where the policy change has had a positive effect for big business, with no regard for its effect on the people. The government are supposed to represent the people, not the big corporations. If your bothered look up corporatism and you’ll see its behind most of the bad stuff you hear about today, like banking.”
