The anti-gentrification protesters who attacked Brick Lane's Cereal Killer Café are turning their attention to the controversial Jack the Ripper Museum with another protest this Sunday. Activist group Class War targeted the café on Saturday night, throwing red paint, cereal, smoke bombs, furniture and wearing pig masks. But this time, they're leaving the cornflakes out of it and focusing on the much more worthy cause of stopping the glorification of sexual violence against women.
The Jack the Ripper Museum was highly criticised when it opened back in July, particularly because the museum dedicated to a man who brutally killed women was initially billed as a 'Museum of Women's History'. Naturally, this got more than a few people's backs up and there were several protests against the museum in early August. The Class War protest kicks off at 2pm on October 4 – let's just hope they leave the crunchy nut at home this time.
