UK: Hundreds of protesters cause chaos for Christmas shoppers at London mall ‘die-in’ over AMERICAN cop choke-hold death, thousands of miles away

Hundreds of protesters caused chaos for Christmas shoppers at a London shopping centre last night (pictured above) with a mass demonstration over the death of American man Eric Garner, who died while being arrested in New York.

Up to 600 protesters gathered in the 1,883,700 sq ft mall in Shepherd’s Bush, west London, before lying down on the floor as part of the ‘die-in’ demonstration and chanting: ‘I can’t breathe’.

Police arrested 76 people at the protest, which was over the death of Mr Garner – a 43-year-old black man who choked to death in New York City in July as he was arrested for selling loose, untaxed cigarettes.

Several shoppers said shops were forced to put their shutters down amid fears of damage by the protesters, while others claimed to be held outside of the mall by police who desperately tried to get the demonstration under control.

Others expressed concerns about the ‘intimidating’ behaviour of some of the demonstrators, as well as the timing of the mass protest at the packed mall, which came just over three weeks before Christmas…

    I suppose if your life hollow and rudderless and you thirst for meaning and relevance, but are too lazy to do anything actually useful, this fills the void. You get to lie down, which these protesters undoubtedly do a lot, and face no repercussions since the target of their wrath is “over there.”
    Because lying down on the floor in a mall in protest of sex grooming gangs in your very midst might put you a risk of what… being kicked or something awful like that?

    I can see thousands of muslims in Britain laughing their ass off thousands of miles from my house. It’s a gift I have. They are truly doomed.

    And ironically enough, I’d like to choke ’em all!

  • Surely the ghost of Charles Dickens can do something to these douche-tools? You can’t just ruin Christmas!

    Hooray! Gaia bless these courageous social justice warriors bravely confronting mild mannered shoppers in a zero-risk situation!

    Kids, be sure to take lots of selfies and post them on Facebook so everybody can see how awesome you are!

    They should have all been trampled by thousands of righteously angry shoppers.

    When a country dismisses the traditional rule of law preferring to cherry-pick who will be charged and for what while ignoring others openly breaking the law, the country has lost all hope of surviving. This has nothing in common with any legal protest, yet now these professional agitators and infiltrators get rewarded by allowing them to break more than one law without consequences. This will result in more of the same.

    Do the Islamic British have the guts to lie down for Rothman abuse, Lee Rigby, female genitalia mutilation, The queen ‘s attempted murder on Remembrance Day, American beheadings etc

    What gits.

    What a perfect expression of young liberal politics these days — a nap-in.

    It’s relaxing, stress-free and offers a great opportunity for selfies.

    • Uncle_Waspy

      Nap-in ……love it!

        Like when I told my kids when they were young my dream job was the night shift at Sleep Country…….zzzzzzz…..zzzzz

        Consider that “nap-in” stolen, Dana. 😉

    Really intelligent demonstrators. After the Erol Incedal trial, Britain has been expecting a Mumbai or Westgate style jihadi attack on a shopping mall

      Are you saying they make an excellent Islamofascist’s “target rich environment?”

  • Minicapt

    Spray them with deer urine …

  • Just put on some golf shoes and start walking.
