    Red Sky It was like that when I got here.

    It looks like anti fascist activists have succeeded in shutting down Generation Identity's 'secret' London conference which was being held in Sevenoaks, Kent.

    GI still claim they're going ahead with the launch of their 120db campaign tomorrow at Speakers Corner. 11 a.m

    They weren’t very professional this morning. Even the pro-Duterte demo at Marble Arch at the same time thought to bring a microphone. This lot were barely audible.

    Maybe twenty tops GI blokes with beards, a couple of speakers, and loads of people with cameras. A few of the blokes mixed in with the (much more numerous) counter protest beforehand and tried to start arguments but there was nothing physical, particularly with cops wandering around everywhere. Once the main group arrived the cops kept everyone strictly apart.

    All this is happening with one of the regular Christians there standing on a stool and telling people to take off their masks and turn to Jesus.

    Apparently they are still wandering around and have been kicked out of a pub.

    They probably are compared to the average audience member of South East Today. Most of them think that Ceefax was a bit 'nifty'.

    I wonder if the function of these fascist meetings/rallies/marches has morphed. In the past they were about showing physical strength in the street, now, it seems to me, they are, for the most part, a trap set to make the left look like violent authoritarians on social media platforms: the demo is not the important thing, the media spectacle is. This seems to be a core strategy of the new far right: they hold some tiny rally or demo; the left show up to counter-protest or to shut them down; the far right film it and post it up on social media; it's picked up on by various centre-right/right social media platforms and used to push 'the left are the real fascists' narrative; the discussion focuses on the formal issue of 'freedom of speech', not the substantive political issues that are being protested. My question (and I don't know the answer) is: is it just better for the left to ignore these formations and concentrate on other stuff or should they be confronted notwithstanding the way the confrontation will be used by such groups online?

    if people don't want footage uploaded there are obvious things to do about it.

    they popped up in Hastings over the weekend, a banner drop photo shoot hidden round the back of the castle where only the odd teenage drinker might spot them, and a bit of leafleting

    It's actually these pricks that got me to sign up to Urban again. I went away for a 3 week holiday and when I came back there was alot of these stickers around my neighbourhood. They are tech savvy, true. All the hidden whois details and clever produced propaganda videos.
    Unfortunately being the vain hipsters they are, they left exif data in the image files on their website. So I have enough info to know where these two live.
    It all seems to be about retaining white privilege. Under the guise of saving culture. Mate, you haven't got any fucking culture. Now get into the fields, forget about your wanky media degree and get threshing. Lets see you preserve your identities that way.

    and I will hold them personally responsible for the fire at Lindisfarne, if we are gonna have to start playing silly buggers with some inbred fucking halfwits who get scared in the big city.

    I think this is right, I have taken an interest in the confrontations between right wing demonstrators in the NW of the USA and antifa who come out to oppose them. It follows a classic pattern, a small group have a pro Trump, free speech demo and are outnumbered by antifa. The right wing are shouted down, pepper sprayed and driven out whilst they ask why they are not allowed free speech. Of course all this is filmed and immediately put on social media with antifa being portrayed as the 'real fascists'. This has now been used as an excuse for the right to demand that antifa be classed as a terrorist group.

    The point being I suppose that it isn't what is 'true' that matters but who presents what can be believed, in the most accessible way. The left tends to drone on and focus on point scoring between various factions whilst the alt right produce digestible, short and to the point materials, ie YouTube videos that really influence how people view things.

    I said a few years ago that I thought Gen-I were clever . Clever in the way they frame the debate, clever in their stunts and clever in their media work. They are the nearest Euro version to an alt right in appearance but their agenda is far worse . However what's their game plan?

    It really hasn't stuck here. Their best hope is to convince Tommy Robinson to be onside, but his core audience isn't who they want to be speaking to.

    Thats true , they are on the bandwagon, but they want something else.What is it though?

    not-bono-ever Not what they want but what is good for them

    I think TR is smart enough to give them a swerve- given their underlying racist agenda, its not the type of press he wants
