Hi tec version, no razor blades, just wire a sign to tha mains.
That looks painfully faked.
I don't think it is, apparently a lot of Trump supporters did the same thing.
In the mid 80s I removed a fash sticker with a razor blade from the subways near Aldgate tube. The thick cunts had stuck it on a light panel so you could actually see the silhouette of the blade underneath, for fuck sake.
Sounds more like a piece of modern art than a trap for an unwary anti fascist.
You'd think... what with the Whitechapel art gallery nearby. But similar booby traps were found in the area without the atmospheric backlighting. So my money says it was a thick fascist wot dunnit.
Fascist activist Joe Owens was once convicted of sending letters with razor blades under the envelope flap to prominent Jewish people. This was in 1983 when he was in the BNP and he served 8 months.
Heard a rumour that the NF, BM and BNP did it with stickers on the street but doubt it was widespread. I used to tear down stickers all the time without incident . As a sideline Tony "pavement kisser" Lecomber once attacked someone at a railway station who he spotted tearing down a BNP sticker. He served time for it.
Just seen this handy tip on chitter:
Heard that it happened in Blackpool some years ago, if that's any use to you.
Interesting to see this claim updated for the faultlines of 2018:
No photo, sadly.
I wonder if the story originates with soldiers talking about the danger of booby-trapped porn mags/republican posters in the North of Ireland, & was distorted as it filtered through the far right?
Finally a question I can answer (I generally only speak when I need to know something). This rumour is an old NF one when posters were tacked up - and I didn't believe it then (it'd take too many to be effective). During AFA BNP B&H, everyone went back to paste when it wouldn't work and I can't see how it would work with posters.
My grandfather who never said he wasn't at Cable St said it was rumoured back then which is more likely but he didn't beleive it. I always thought it was an anl type's excuse for getting a paper cut.
Response from Mcr Transport Police. Twat.
Anyway if you use keys to deal with stickers you won't get cut
If you click on the twitter link I posted, the account has been suspended too.
If I'd had more time I would've done a screenshot but I expect one exists somewhere on the internet. Hey ho.
