EDL watch

    Red Sky It was like that when I got here.

    The report linked to above is about another rally in Dover - in September 2016. The photographer got beaten (not with a scaffold tube) in January 2016. The figures of about 150 anti-fascists from out of town and locals are about right.

    The39thStep Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbour?

    Quite a few gaps at the back in the higher seats to be fair. Wonder what the SWP made of the call to get involved in the coomunity,residents associations and Council meetings?

    This is getting tedious - you wobble all over the place, making unsustainable statements, refusing to answer when called on them, and shifting your ground.

    Did anyone say AFN were all anarchists? The point was that the reports you linked to were partial and biased.[Edit - well one was, see below]

    I apologise for the sectarian dig at the SP, I didn't realise they were so committed to "militant" anti-fascism nowadays. I must admit I've kind of lost touch with them since I moved a few years back. True there's a member in my town though I don't see him much and being a similar age/build to me he's unlikely to be up for much militancy anyway. So they had two members arrested in 2009, I didn't know that. Kudos.

  6. I think i posted earlier in the thread if you can find it- it was mashalled by the EDL IIRC- marches and shit in Sunderland. I think the blokes accused had to be moved to another location when it started to get nasty. hardly reported in the press. google justice for chelsey - but will bring up mostly EDL links

    The North East has (with a couple of exceptions) generally been a bit of a black hole for anti fascism recently.

    Just looking at the footage and they hung around too long . Game as fuck but badly outnumbered . In and out ....and no colours....would have been much better but, cest la vie .

    Cest la guerre.

    At least his mates stuck by the lad .

    Fair play for having a go I suppose but it looks like an amble up to the shop, then someone throws a smoke flare and everyone runs off.

    Somebody's unlucky enough to get stuck at the back.

    Wonder if those pallets of books will end up gathering dust in the same warehouse as Michael Gove's bibles?

    The39thStep Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbour?

    And this incident won't help that either, locals came out to defend the shop.this wasn't organised anti fascism just some kids wound up by him on YouTube and Twitter.Added to that is some stuff about some Celtic supporters singing about Lee Rigby .

    He was there both times the EDL came to Tower Hamlets as well with his "Gays and Muslims Unite - Stop the EDL" banner. Fair play.

    EDL having some kind of march in Keighley today, the cunts just delayed my train to leeds.

    There's a massive police presence for the cunts.

    Yep, the usual collection of drug dealers, sex offenders, wannabe thugs and losers. Hardly worth the petrol, I only bothered because I have family in the area.
