The General Synod is the national assembly of the Church of England. It is the only body with powers delegated from parliament to pass so-called "measures" which are incorporated into English law. They have the full force and effect of an act of parliament and can apply to any Church-related matter. MPs and peers can vote to agree or reject a measure, but cannot amend it. Once agreed by both houses of parliament, it goes for Royal Assent and becomes law.
It is next meeting on 6-10 February 2012 at Church House in Westminster
We plan a two pronged demonstration outside, opposite the main entrance to Dean's Yard outside the Queen Elizabeth Conference Centre.
1st prong is the desertion of the English people by the Church of England, we appeal to delegates with conscience (they're vicars they shiould all have one!) to speak up for ordinary people once more
2nd prong is that we call for the resignation of the current Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams. In doing so, we play our trump card and call for his replacement to be John Sentamu, the Archbishop of York (who is in the frame for the next Archbishop of Canterbury anyway). Sentamu has spoken out for the English working class in the past

- The liberal wing, led by the Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, and the traditional wing represented by Bishop of London Richard Chartres, are divided over the anti-capitalist protest.
The liberal wing of the Church, led by the Archbishop, is sympathetic to the issues raised by Occupy London's anti-banking cause. Dr Williams yesterday backed the protesters and said he sympathised with the "urgent larger issues" they raised.
However, the orthodox side, led by Dr Chartres, believes the tent city should be encouraged to close.
The Bishop of London said at the weekend that a legal move to evict the "Occupy London" movement was a "sensible precautionary measure".
Dr Chartres is also thought to be a contender to replace Dr Williams when he steps down sometime in the next two years.
Dr Williams was co-founder of a Left-wing Christian group during his student days at Oxford University. He wrote the original manifesto for the Jubilee Group that claimed capitalism was in its death throes and "threatens to inflict even greater violence on mankind than it has done before".
The aim is to get publicity for the working class who have been deserted by their traditional supporters, one of which is the CofE.
We have a Ugandan and a Pakistani as the only two people in the church who have spoken out against Islamification and the abandonment of British culture etc. It's full of middle class commies.
Williams was investigated as a communist agitator at university, Marxists, they're athiests, we believe Williams is a commie plant.
They won't expect a patriotic group to broaden the struggle like this, we hit them on issues they can't repudiate, why aren't they speaking out about our elderly, education, loss of employment etc etc, they always used to, explain that is why they have falling attendances, because they have abandoned their key support.
Now is a time for a credible, non-reactionary working class resistance before it is too late, now is our time. We ask for any disciplined and sober patriots who can make it to give us their support, we dont need quanity, we need quality, as working class people we need a platform and this demo will go some way to achieve that. It will be a small, respectful and well behaved gathering of working class patriots, no more, no less, our strength is in our quality and discipline.
Now we are awake and thinking, it is just a matter of time.
