    Don't be like that, just saying that the shahada on a black background is pretty commonly associated with al-queada and jihadism. I'll be nowhere near anyone with that banner.

    Is this MDL related to the main MDL facebook? They post all sorts of nasty anti-Semitic, anti-Shia, misogynist and conspiracist bullshit constantly.

    Some choice comments on that thread.

    Intersectional justification for this 3, 2, 1....

    Another thing to think about which I didn't realise but have noticed from going through EDL youtube comments and facebook groups is that EDL members label any group of black or Asian youth as 'MDL'.

    So you're saying it will be a three way dust up?

    Unlikely UAF will challenge the above, no history of it.

    That won't be hard. Just avoid the Weatherspoons on Broad Street from about 10 minutes after the ''demo'' starts.

    Only the pure anti-fascists need to turn up. You should have been around in the late 70's. Those who'd spent time in Strangeways, or Armley nick were great blokes to be around and the stories they told had you in rapture. "Extremely Violent" I was told was stamped in red on one large file held by the police one friend had thrust in his face. The man in question is now sadly dead. He named his son Leon. I've never seen so many people who attended his funeral. Even a well known fascist turned up to show his respect. He probably gave kudos when put through a bush shelter after flashing a blade. You had to be there.

    Yeah they've moved it to the 20th. stuff_it can you edit the thread title?
    I can probably find the UAF counter demo details if anyone wants it.

    It's your terminology, I was just asking for you to expand further as I don't understand what you mean.

    A touching tale, but what did it have to do with the thread audiotech?

    "they're not as good as they used to be" or what?

    local people turning out and protesting fascists is one thing, but would I fuck travel to go to something organised by a bunch of jihadi windbag loonspugs and their loony-leftie shitfly followers.

    Rastafari, Jah! Lord of Lords, Black Star Liner. Great sound systems, singing the praises of Haile Selassie, who, when he made a speech to the assembly of the League of Nations 'made the emperor an icon for anti-fascists around the world, and Time named him "Man of the Year."' His followers were also on the front-line in Southall and around the country - Birmingham, Leicester for example - joining forces against the NF. Surprisingly too were members of Black separatist movements getting involved. I also remember a People's National Party banner turning up at one demonstration (Wood Green I think?) a centre left party, founded in Jamaica and led by Norman Manley. The party is democratic socialist by constitution, but has embraced policies of neoliberalism since it was elected to govern in 1989. So all sorts of radicals and moderates turned out to confront the fascists then. Much the same as today, apart from your good self, as is clearly apparent from your rant.

    So, I can get a handle on where you're coming from, who do you mean by '"jihadi windbag loonspugs and their loony-leftie shitfly followers" together organising a march'. Some evidence of that claim would be helpful. Interesting comments at the end of this video:

    Sorry maybe it's because i'm tired but your not making much sense tonight.

    I'm making more sense than those who think policing an anti-fascist demonstration is a good idea, or even viable. Even more difficult with those who turn up dressed in black and are quick off their toes.

    Edit: Informed that It's a 94 day wait before I can get to see a neurosurgeon, so I'll be about for a bit yet. Where's Ken Loach, with his sprit of 1945 when you need him?

    muscovyduck too school for cool

    One time, the BNP put up a billboard in Aston. Out of all the places in North Birmingham, they chose Aston.

    Not relevant but I've always wanted to bring that up and I've never had the chance to.

    It's others on here and t'other thread who are going on about Asian and black youth doing their bit and Muslims with flags (that no one quite understands what's inscribed on them), who they think should have a stern talking to. Those most vocal in this idiocy I expect won't be doing any of that. I can picture the scene:

    'Err, what's on the flag?'
    'A Quote from the Qu’ran.'
    'Oh.'
    Exits left.

    If a majority of Muslims on the same demonstration find any flag, or placard offensive then give them some grace in believing that if it is indeed offensive they'll deal with it themselves. Most Muslims there will not be raving fundamentalists, who will accept any offensive nonsense from a minority Muslim sect, who it should be said don't represent them. Makes sense now?

    SpineyNorman it was already like that when I got here

    Do you know if anything's being organised outside the UAF stuff Tom? Thinking of coming over with a few others but really don't want to get stuck inside a pen getting fucking henna tattoos and watching some juggling if I can possibly help it - if anyone else is going and wants to meet up let me know (PM obvs)

    I dunno tbh I was just going to wander into town and find out if I hadn't heard before hand, there's usually people around outside of any UAF stuff but I'll let you know if/when I hear anything.
