English nazis cancel Liverpool march for lack of participants

This video from England says about itself:

15th August 2015 – Nazis advertise a “white man march” through Liverpool and get a nasty shock when outnumbered hundreds to one by anti fascists opposed to racism.

From daily The Independent in Britain:

Liverpool fascist march cancelled after barely anyone turns up

“Whenever the city is bullied or intimidated or threatened we all come together and we stand together”

Neo-Nazis have called off a march in Liverpool, amid reports that they were vastly outnumbered by anti-fascist protesters.

The far-right group National Action had planned a ‘White Man March’ through the streets of Liverpool yesterday.

They had claimed that 150 of their supporters would be attending the rally and had written to the local council threatening to unleash “a National Action-packed weekend of ethnically enriched chaos and mayhem” if they were not given permission to march.

However, the Liverpool Echo reports that few members materialised and the group cancelled the event yesterday afternoon.

According to the Anti-Fascist Network, some members of the march were forced to take shelter in a lost property section after being bombarded with missiles.

Mersey Police confirmed that the organisers had made the decision to cancel the event. They said that six people were arrested as a result of unrest at the marches, but it was not yet known whether those involved were marchers or protesters.

Hundreds of locals attended two counter protests staged by campaign groups Unite Against Fascism and the Anti-Fascist Network. They chanted ‘Nazi scum off our streets’ and ‘Master race, you’re having a laugh’.

Liverpool City Mayor Joe Anderson said he was proud of the city’s citizens for taking a stand against the far-right group. He said: “I think the reaction that they [White Man Marchers] got in the city was not unexpected. I think the city is, for me, a city that is proud of its tag that we are called ‘the world in one city’.

“I think whenever the city is bullied or intimidated or threatened we all come together and we stand together.”

  1. A NEONAZI youth group tried to take a highly publicised “white pride” march to the streets of Liverpool on Saturday, but hundreds of anti-fascist demonstrators turned them back.

    National Action’s plot to make Liverpool “go up in flames” if prevented from marching ended in a damp squib as they were forced to take shelter at Lime Street Station lost property depot.

    Members of the Anti-Fascist Network and Unite Against Fascism subjected the dwindling numbers of fascists to a “barrage of projectiles,” including bananas and rotten eggs.

    “Liverpool was absolutely magnificent, the humour, the camaraderie, it’s really clear that people now have the confidence to say we have to stand up to this,” Hope Not Hate organiser Matthew Collins told the Star.

    “There is no doubt that the far right are nasty and they are nastier than they have been for a long time but let’s not forget that there’s more of us than there are of them.

    “I think what happened in Liverpool should lift everyone up — we can defeat these people.”

    Merseyside Police only recorded “minor disorder” and made six arrests.

    National Action had spent the few weeks prior to their White Man March threatening local politicians including Liverpool’s Labour Mayor Joe Anderson, who called for the event to be cancelled and powers to ban extremist street marches.

    In an open letter to the politician, the neonazis suggested that “only bullets will stop us” if he interfered with their “God-given right of public expression and freedom of speech.”

    In Walsall, a demonstration planned for 500 supporters of racist street movement the English Defence League turned out to be a small gathering of fewer than 150.

    Nine people were arrested during the one-hour walk, including a 30-year-old Walsall man and a 33-year-old woman from Tyne and Wear on suspicion of public offences.

    “I think the tide is turning,” said Mr Collins.

    “Across the country people are waking up … and people are beginning to say that we are not going to stand for it any more.”
