Manchester Piccadilly railway station closed by protest

Recommended Posts

Manchester Piccadilly railway station has been closed after protesters stormed the railway lines.

Campaigners are blocking the tracks and some have tried to climb overhead line equipment, National Rail said.

Crowds of people are holding banners which read "stop Turkey from helping ISIS terrorists".

How is blocking train service in Manchester going to cause Turkey to do something or not. Seems as silly as those endless strikes in the crazy State of West Bengal in India. An idiotic idea started by the Marxists thereand adopted in general for unknown reasons.

Folk that feel their views are not publicised or shared by the main stream media, for example, have to resort to these stunts to get attention for their cause.

 

Not great for the rest of us, but if you happen to be in a minority...

The funny thing was, in Kolkata somehow the then governing CPI(M) folks decided that the government should organize so called Hartals, to attract attention of someone somewhere. This to me seemed like cutting ones nose to spite ones face, and lo and behold over the years they managed to lose huge amounts of business and reduce Kolkata to a regional town, albeit a very large one, from a world metropolis. In general such strikes ar just plain stupid, and hurts those that indulge in them way more than everyone else that they are trying to get attentions of.
