500 anti-racists take on 127 ultranationalists

SEXUAL abuse survivors joined an anti-fascist rally in Rotherham on Saturday as a ragbag of racist thugs took to the streets to sow division.

Supporters of extreme nationalist party Britain First chucked glass bottles at children of Asian descent, prompting their opponents to lay siege to the pub where they had set up shop. Three suspected Britain First members faced arrest.

The Yorkshire town has been regularly targeted by groups such as the English Defence League and Britain First following revelations last year that men largely of Asian origin had been grooming girls for sex.

But the demos have backfired, bringing many different sections of the community out in unity against racism.

Over 500 anti-racists turned out on Saturday against less than 130 Britain First fans.

Members of the Asian community, trade unionists, LGBT residents and disabled people joined anti-racist groups including Unite Against Fascism (UAF) in the show of defiance.

“The community came out. It wasn’t just the demonstration,” said Rotherham UAF.

“People had posters in their windows saying: ‘Racists not welcome here’.”

The counter-protest also sought to pay tribute to Mushim Ahmed, an 81-year-old Asian man who was beaten to death by racists near his home in Rotherham two weeks ago while on his way to mosque.

“Britain First said they were going to have 1,500 in the town, but we had spotters counting them and there were 127. There were at least 500 anti-fascist protesters,” said UAF.

“One of the most pleasing aspects was the number of Asian people who turned up. Part of it was to show respect for Mushim Ahmed.

“The day was very positive. Everybody was buoyant. There was a lot of interaction. There were black, white, Asian, gay and disabled people. Some of the victims of abuse actually took part.”

The mood only turned ­violent when police directed anti-racists past a pub packed with drunken Britain First supporters, some of whom came out and threw bottles at two children.

Four anti-racist protesters were arrested.

    A 16-YEAR-OLD Asian youth was being treated for head injuries yesterday after an attack in Rotherham, South Yorkshire.

    The vicious assault took place at 1.10pm on Wednesday.

    It follows the death on August 10 of an 81-year-old Rotherham Asian man, Mushin Ahmed, who was attacked on his way to his mosque.

    Two men have been charged in relation to the death.

    A 32-year-old man has been arrested in connection with Wednesday’s attack.

    Rotherham is being targeted by racist groups attempting to divide the community over the grooming of young white women for sexual abuse, which has involved some Asian men although the majority of those involved have been white.

    The latest far-right demonstration was on Saturday and involved the fascist Britain First group, whose supporters were heavily outnumbered by anti-fascists.

    South Yorkshire police say the cost of policing recent demonstrations, mainly by far-right groups targeting the town, is £4 million.

    Cops ‘not protecting’ community from far-right opportunists

    ROTHERHAM Muslims are boycotting South Yorkshire Police following a surge of racist violence stoked up by the far-right capitalising on last year’s Asian grooming gangs scandal.

    An elderly Asian man has been murdered and racists have threatened to rape Muslim women since the Jay report into the grooming of young girls for sexual abuse by mainly Asian men was published in August 26 2014.

    Rotherham’s Muslim community has repeatedly condemned the perpetrators and called for their prosecution — but the far-right has still targeted the town.

    A packed meeting including representatives of all Rotherham mosques, Muslim community leaders and supportive trade unionists voted on Sunday evening to boycott South Yorkshire Police, saying they are not protecting the community, and accusing police of using the grooming issue to deflect attention from their own failings.

    The Muslim community “has been under perpetual attack and demonisation” despite its wholesale condemnation of child sexual exploitation, said a statement passed by the meeting.

    “There is a perception in the minds of many ordinary people that all Muslims are now potential child abusers, or that they have been involved in some sort of a cover-up,” the meeting ruled.

    “This is further perpetuated by 14 far-right demonstrations in our town that have zapped poison into our local community.

    In turn our women have been threatened with rape, children attacked, mosques vandalised, men physically assaulted while out earning their livelihood and an elderly man murdered.”

    Hate crime recording project Tell Mama has had 27 attacks reported to them in Rotherham in the last 12 months.

    “South Yorkshire Police have piggybacked on this hostile environment towards the Muslim community by deflecting the attention from their own failures by scapegoating us,” said the meeting.

    “South Yorkshire Police say one thing when speaking to a Muslim audience, yet when speaking to a different audience, the Muslim community is simply cannon fodder.

    “It is against this backdrop that we, the Muslim community of Rotherham, have voted for all Muslim organisations and institutions which claim to represent Muslims in Rotherham to cut all lines of engagement and communication with South Yorkshire Police.

    “We will not be treated as criminals any longer.”

    South Yorkshire Police is already steeped in controversy over its involvement in the brutal attack on striking miners at Orgreave in 1984 and its role in the Hillsborough football stadium disaster in Sheffield in which 96 Liverpool football fans died in 1989.

    Chief Superintendent Jason Harwin said: “We appreciate the frustrations of the Rotherham public in relation to continued demonstrations, which do have an impact on the local economy and community cohesion.

    “We have made representations to the Home Office and are seeking legal advice to see what our options are for future demonstrations.

    “We work closely with the Muslim community and join them in their condemnation of all forms of child sexual exploitation.

    “We accept that we have made mistakes in the past but we are absolutely committed to identifying those who commit this despicable crime and bringing them before the courts.”

    Two men have been charged in connection with the murder of 81-year-old Mushin Ahmed in Rotherham.
