ANARCHISTS are threatening to attack the Jack the Ripper Museum today after it refused to replace a mock-up of the Victorian killer’s sitting room with an anti-capitalist exhibition.



Class War activists Lisa McKenzie, Jane Nicholl and Murray Healy made the baffling request after being given a guided tour round the tourist attraction a month ago.

They are expected to join hundreds of protesters outside the museum in east London this afternoon to accuse the owners of the "glorification of sexual violence."

During their visit the trio spouted praise for Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and demanded one of the floors of the museum be devoted to his brand of socialism with propaganda against bankers and the wealthy elite.

They wanted their exhibition to replace a recreation of the Ripper's sitting room which contains a copy of the famous 'From Hell" letter, medical books from the time and an original drawing by one time suspect Walter Sickert above the fireplace.

And while they're at it, they should get rid of all Hitler themed museum exhibits, because we don't want to 'glorify' what he did either. *rolls eyes

Yes, there was sexual violence. That's why exhibits pertaining to it are here. They tell of history.

This is like saying we glorify the worship of the dead because mummies are on display in the museum.

Let us do what we want with your property or else we'll destroy your property!

Glorifying violence? No it isn't. It's merely educating people about history. Nobody is saying it's a good thing that happened, or that Jack the Ripper did the right thing.
