It's a UaF event.
But seems the only thing happening.
Final Statement from Lola on the recent courtcase. Circulate if possible.
Has the Pie & Mash Facebook disappeared in the wake of this? Was it Marsh/Turner all along?
yes it was marsh and a girl called sammi doing poo and marsh page. they are maintaining 'radio silence' on 'secure comms' (facebook). Marsh is a bully who stabbed two young lads and attacked a 5' 2" woman. He has lost a lot of rep on the far right as they went for a 'secret visit' to brighton which was found out and he hid in a pub toilet and has called for demos/confrontations and bottled out. more to come on his 'hooligan behaviour.'
Brighton anti-fascists back from Dover today. "Wirral Infidels, who the fuck are you?"
Dover was sketchy to say the least.....
AFN write up
So, what actually happened in #Dover today?
Around 200-250 fascists attempted to march to the port to demonstrate against refugees and for a closed border. The AFN and locals opposed them, drawing around 150 people in a militant bloc.
We took the initiative early on by occupying the fascists meet-up point in the Castle Pub before their march had a chance to set off. Despite coming under sustained attack from bricks and bottles, antifascists held their ground and put flight a few groups that came looking for a fight (grabbing a couple of trophies in the mean time).
The police kettled us, attempting to move the fascists onto their march route. We broke out of the kettle, and re-occupied their route. Riot police kettled us again, and held us while they marched the fascists on to their rally point in the port. Antifascists then marched unopposed and un kettled through the streets of central Dover, back to Pencester Park.
The day should be a wake-up call to all those involved in the#RefugeesWelcome movement- Fascists can still mobilise in numbers and have the capacity for a huge amount of violence. Unless we recognise and combat this threat now, it may soon be very difficult, if not impossible, to organise refugee and migrant solidarity actions without the threat of far-right attack. Although it is really great that thousands of people marched across the country to show that refugees are welcome, it does show that our movement is not yet taking the threat of fascism seriously. Many people would rather go on a pointless, feelgood bimble through central London than physically make sure refugees and migrants are always welcome here by combating violent racists.
A special shoutout to Folkestone United for being so awesome and supporting us throughout the day!
Not a sniff of fash in Brighton today at the Refugee demo - was anticipating it tbh. Fash turnout in Dover sounds bigger than Refugee demo - depressing.
Why were you expecting fash in Brighton? We don't have any fash in Brighton.
Fash turnout in Dover was between 150 and 200, it was a who's who of the various EDL splinter groups as well as a few outright white supremacists. Sadly they will regard it as a great success.
No fash in Brighton? I'd beg to differ tbh.
On or around St George's Day maybe but we have virtually none who dare raise their heads above the parapet locally the rest of the year.
Except that dodgy looking photographer.
Sticks out like a sore thumb.
talking about dodgy photographers, there is someone in Cardiff with a weird redwatch twitter account, apparently were an activist including DPAC and now gone weird, posting nasty stuff about an ex and having loads of twitter accounts. also posted stuff about other activists here
