About 6:45 this evening Bookmarks Bookshop was attacked by about a dozen masked wearing fascists. They threatened staff and attempted to destroy books and other materials. Fortunately no staff were hurt. This is the true face of fascism. No Paseran!

Footie firm linked to DFLA, if it was going to be anyone. (Millwall?). Championship season has kicked off so there will be "likely lads" in and around the centre from across the country.

Now cue the SWP leadership lecturing their members about the supposed evils of "Squadism"

Well if the Swaps say it was fash it must be
I know a "false flag" could be staged to illicit support and gain sympathy on the wider Left but that's just not the SWP's style. They are too boring and conservative to do something like that.
Given the current environment they probably were turned over. Their security has always been piss

Anti SWP left ? Very much doubt it.....random hoolies? Hoolies yes....random, no... The DFLA are composed of hooligan firms and they know the SWP are behind their main adversaries at their demos , SUTR, so they probably wound up some Millwall to attack the bookshop. Most likely scenario but hardly earth shattering. Feel sorry for the young staff in the bookshop. The SWP do nothing to protect them

noisy but small
Probably not relevant at all but quite a lot of anti swp stickers round here these past few months ( saying about the delta thing & that stand up to racism is the same people etc).

Boro, charlton, Brentford and Luton in London earlier, or even a firm that didn't have a game. West ham were out earlier looking for a row. Millwall had more urgent stuff to deal with and i doubt smashing up a book shop is high up there list.

Why are you pinning this on Millwall? Just becuse they played at home today?
Match turned out at 5:00pm and the attack happened at 6:45pm....Not got a railway timetable on me but you do the math.
Millwall are one of the bigger groups in the DFLA. Along, ironically, with West Ham.

They must have moonwalked over there if it took that long.

So that's it for you, it must be one of those. Have you considered that it could have been be anyone/group/firm or not tied to football at all? Doesn't' these football lads set ups have people from all over?

Columbo has nothing on you :rolleyes:

By the way Pau l S and his cronies have been posturing at demos recently, perhaps by their 'Orwellien' logic; they are the true Squadist and no one else is doing anything !
