4 years ago #wlf was founded – call for #catference4?

Four years ago, on 23 May 2010, the #wlf was founded as a socialist feline faction. We thank those brave few who were our founders. Respect to all #wlf comrades. It is a useful time to remind ourselves of our founding principles: the #wlf is and continues to be a an international collective of socialist cats and sympathetic members of other species (including the odd human and at least one tortoise).

Our principles are embodied in the #wlf code.

We have had occasional #catferences when we can share good #wlf practice and come together under a shared set of ideals. Perhaps it’s time for #catference4?

This year, 2014, the 23rd May falls on a Friday. Perhaps a comrade might propose a 24 hour #catference to celebrate #wlffoundersday from 6pm BST on 23 May to 6pm BST 24 May (see worldwide times here)?

VIVA! Leave comments here or on Twitter using #wlffoundersday

Here’s why:



You might want to #widdleonHunt too as it’s arguable he should also be answering to parliament over his BSkyB conduct.

9pm tonight (GMT). Other timezones here.

Calling ALL comrades: to mark the formation of the #wlf there will be a #yowl


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

And our code and anthem.

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’

Here’s why: www.boycottworkfare.org/
And: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Workfare#Workfare_in_the_United_Kingdom
And interestingly: epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/29356

Plus MP Chris Grayling has not endeared himself: The SWP responded to his ‘smear’ on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme (probably the most publicity the SWP has had in a very long time). The transcript is here.

NB some documents see to have been taken down from the DWP (Department for Work and Pensions) website which would suggest that Grayling and Iain Duncan Smith (IDS)  lied about workfare obligations.

Details of this week’s #widdlewednesday #wlf

Dearest comrades, the targets for our weekly protest widdles proliferate by the week!

We have had several suggestions again for today’s action. I would urge all comrades to drink a lot of water and choose carefully. Usual time 9pm GMT. Other timezones here.

  1. #widdleonDWP (UK Department for Work and Pensions) Here’s why.
  2. #widdleonassad #widdleonchina #widdleonrussia Here’s why.
  3. #widdleonfurfarms
  4. #widdleonRomney

I do wonder if our double and triple widdlewednesdays are watering down the impact, but the suggestions just keep coming.
