Oh, no! Russell Brand is at it again. On June 21, Russell crashed British Parliament and called on protesters to join him in a “joyful” revolution. This is not the first time Russell has shared his controversial views in public. Read on to watch what happened.

Russell Brand, 39, is no stranger to protests. In 2013, Russell asked young people not to vote and now he is urging protesters to join him in a “joyful” revolution. On June 21, Russell spoke to London protesters who gathered to rally against new austerity measures by the British government.

Russell Brand Calls For A Revolution

During the protest, Russell spoke to nearly 50,000 protestors in London’s Parliament Square and urged them to join him in a “peaceful, effortless, joyful revolution.”

“The people of this building [the House of Commons] generally speaking do not represent us, they represent their friends in big business. It’s time for us to take back our power,” Russell said in a video posted on Sky News.

In the video, Russell goes on to say that power lies with the people, not with the government. Katy Perry, how did you neglect to tell us that your ex-husband was such a freedom fighter!?

The recent march marked the one-year anniversary of the formation of the People’s Assembly Against Austerity. The group will have a second march in October with the Trades Union Congress.

Russell Brand’s controversial Antics

This is not the first time that Russell has been in the news for his controversial antics. On October 23, 2013, Russell made some heated political remarks about the British government in an interview. In 2001, Russell was arrested and charged with criminal damage and indecent exposure when he stripped naked while covering the May Day protests for MTV.

HollywoodLifers, what do you think of Russell’s call for a revolution? Let us know!
