Apparantly SYL turned up for a 'reunion' at Lutons ground. He was on a live feed confidently about to give it the big one about '4 lads turning up with a banner against the DFLA' and then had what could be best desribed as a , well as a reunion shouting 'wheres my bodyguards'

A nowadays excuse
FLAF contingent from Mcr & Merseyside out in Mcr today alongside trades unionists & associated anti fascists, supporting the RMT picket that came under pressure from reactionary elements last week, & was under threat again this week. No show from the dodge pots today, but there will undoubtedly be further incidents as both pickets & yellow vests protests continue in Mcr, Liverpool & Leeds.

This is a brief eye-witness report from #FLAF Scotland's perspective about what happened in Edinburgh on the anti-SDL demo today.

We met in a bar close to their assembly point to discuss our tactics. We decided to try and take their assembly point.

We got there just before 1pm. There was a few of them there and we put them in their place with them asking for police protection. The police were oblivious to who we were.

After taking the assembly point the OB split the SDL up into separate groups with 15 of them getting to their assembly point later on, after we were moved on.

Another group of younger FLAF got close to the other SDL group and really noised them up. With them complaining that 'anti are everywhere' and looking for the police to protect them. We'd got in their faces.

When they eventually got to the parliament there was 25 of them with Combat 18 and NF banners on display.

Anti fascists are buoyed up after the experience and we had FLAF from #Celtic, #Falkirk, #Hibs, #Motherwell, as well as individuals from other clubs, bonding together afterwards & committed to building FLAF at all clubs in #Scotland. More details to follow.

* Acknowledgements also the other militant anti-fascists that we met in Edinburgh today. For A United Working Class Against Fascism. #NoPasaran

Lord of the Dance Settee
Piece on BBC about FLAF/DFLA

The Football Lads Tackling Extremism

What a pity when the FLAF guy was asked if he had anything in common with the DFLA guys he said no, opportunity missed really. Could have answered along the lines of ‘we both recognise there are a lot of problems with the country and want to fight for a better world, but the far right just seek to divide us, and a divided working class will never achieve success’. No harm in reaching out.

Copied from their social media:

Two of our friends were in court on Monday for their alleged activities in Bootle during the European Election. Luckily, they both avoided prison & community service orders. The fines were for £180 & £230. We would like to help them if we can.
