    That was not an endorsement of them, I don't actually even know who they are. Someone I follow retweeted those so I thought I'd post them here as some kind of indication of the size of the counter protest.

    yeah, it was a response to them really
    the uaf piss me off, they took over something in Cardiff recently and did the usual, speeches "down with this sort of thing", back slapping then off

    yes, just a shame about the numbers who could be useful if they tried and wanted to be

    yeh but if they wanted to be they wouldn't stop in the uaf more than one demo. they'd join a more useful group or do it themselves

    That's what happens when no one else organises anything.

    They're also a useful distraction. As are the the masked up types.

    yes usually
    in this case there was already something organised and they organised something under their name at the same time same place

    Useful distraction for what? Some squaddist fantasizing?

    How did you lose the initiative ?

    Interesting response. Masking up doesn't attract the attention of the state then? So for those not wanting to attract that attention it's a useful distraction.

    Yeh! We need those middle aged women and old men to get the gimp outfits on and run around lighting fireworks and pretending they are really really hard. That should do it.

    And what would you know? How's the "org" going?

    like MM?? nah
    if all the people that turned out actually stood in the way instead of out of the way there's be no need for that

    If you're not AFN what would you know?

    So the UAF are a distraction , the masks are a distraction. For what might I ask?

    I've read in a few places that we're supposed to ditch the black block gear and go all casual. You try it and I'll do the prisoner support.

    That makes no sense.

    Normal people prepared to show their faces, rather than the gimpy gang running around with all the gear and no idea. Those old uns have the balls to show their faces, but then again when it is just a passing phase and in a couple of years you will be working in the city with all the bells & whistles you would not want your past to get in the way.

    Where are these "old 'uns" then?

    The only thing that has changed is CCTV everywhere. Masking up isn't the only way to counter that.
     
  22. Red Sky

    Red Sky It was like that when I got here.

    CCTV , body cameras on cops, ubiquitous mobile phone footage, Russia Today, livestreamers etc etc.
    But anyway feel free to show every one how it's done . Anytime you like.

    I note you're focusing on demonstrations. I'd argue abandoning that strategy.

    Don't argue it then. Do it.

    Glad this didnt turn out to be a big march or owt, didnt even know about it until me and the other half got to saltaire train station and saw the police presence.

    She feared it was a terrorist incident, which it was really.

    The edl fuckers should be charged for wasting police time, bunch of skinhead racists.

    I sat next to a black fella on the train who told me he'd been told by the codunctor to move down the train as he might not like what the edl heed the balls were chanting.

    In the fucking 21st century man, the mind fuckin boggles.
