THE CEREAL KILLER Café in London was targeted by anti-gentrification protesters last night.

Alan Keery from Belfast, who runs the café in Shoreditch with his twin brother Gary, told the Evening Standard customers had barricaded the door closed with chairs as the demonstration took place outside.

It was organised by a group known as the ‘F**K Parde’ and advertised on Facebook, with over 1,000 people signing up to attend.

A statement from the group read:

Our communities are being ripped apart – by Russian oligarchs, Saudi Sheiks, Israeli scumbag property developers, Texan oil-money twats and our own home-grown Eton toffs. Local authorities are coining it in, in a short sighted race for cash by “regenerating” social housing.

We don’t want luxury flats that no one can afford, we want genuinely affordable housing. We don’t want pop-up gin bars or brioche buns – we want community. Soon this City will be an unrecognisable, bland, yuppie infested wasteland with no room for normal (and not so normal) people like us.

London is our home and worth defending against this onslaught of dog-eat-dog economics. Working class people are being forced out of our homes but we won’t go out without a fight.

Keery said the protesters threw paint and cereal at the building.

“There were children there – they were terrified. The staff were absolutely terrified. It was an angry mob throwing paint at the windows. They had torches and pigs’ heads…

“I think it’s an absolute joke, a bunch of people attacking us. We’re a small business.”
