Calling ALL comrades: to mark the formation of the #wlf there will be a #yowl
24 May, 2012 3 Comments
On 25th May, back in the mists of time, a small number of dedicated feline comrades* formed the Whiskas Liberation Front, commonly known on Twitter as the #wlf
These brave (mostly) British revolutionary socialist cats decided to stand up and be counted. They started a daily struggle campaigning tirelessly together for tasty treats, comfy cushions and resisting the oppression of cats.
Their simple yet powerful ideals were embodied in the WLF Manifesto. This precious document was unfortunately lost, so Comrades share information and tales of heroism each time they use the #wlf tag to attend a meeting on Twitter.
The WLF has grown into a truly international collective of socialist cats and sympathetic members of other species (including the odd human and at least one tortoise).
Remember our motto: Vidi, Edi, Minxi
To mark this momentous occasion, there will be a celebratory #yowl at 9pm GMT (other timezones here) on 25th May.
Please join us.
Everybody wants to be a cat.
Edited to add: As our dear @wlfmadhatter reminds us: ‘Comrades – as well as our founding – cat worshipping #Egypt is a democracy tomorrow. A fine day to be a cat #wlf’
