Racist EDL supporters arrested during demo

Monday 25th May 2015

SIX supporters of the racist English Defence League were arrested in Halifax in West Yorkshire on Saturday during a demonstration.

Around 150 racists marched in a tightly packed bunch with a close police escort surrounding them.

The racists were reported to have drunk heavily in local pubs before the march, culminating in a demonstration outside Halifax town hall.

The arrests involved offences for breach of the peace, racially aggravated public disorder and indecent exposure.

Chants by the racists included “Muslim paedos off our streets.”

In addition to tight police protection for the EDL, dozens of police were deployed around Halifax town centre.

The EDL has made Halifax a regular target for its provocations.

The Calderdale district, of which Halifax is the main town, was the first Yorkshire community to see the election of a British National Party (BNP) councillor in 2003.

The electorate has now cleansed the council of the BNP.

Ukip‘ thugs ambush Labour party activists

Monday 27th April 2015

POLICE were hunting thugs yesterday who allegedly carried Ukip placards as they attacked Labour Party activists in South Thanet, Kent, at the weekend.

Officers are investigating claims that a Labour campaigner had a rosette ripped from his chest during the gang’s violent rampage on Saturday afternoon.

It was one of three alleged attacks carried out by the 10-strong mob linked to the English Defence League (EDL).

They also reportedly targeted Stand Up to Ukip and Tory volunteers campaigning in the constituency, which is being contested by Ukip leader Nigel Farage.

Eye witnesses reported that the men carried Ukip posters and chanted: “Ukip, Ukip” as they ran riot on Broadstairs seafront.

A Ukip spokesman told the Star that they “misappropriated” the party’s campaign material and condemned their “thuggery.”

The men are believed to be part of the white supremacist South East Alliance, which split from the EDL.

They are said to have attacked a dozen Labour activists who had travelled from Hackney to help the campaign of their party’s South Thanet candidate Will Scobie.

The group were canvassing at around 2.30pm in the high street when they were ambushed by men who leapt out of a car, according to a local Labour spokesman.

“The men squared up to our activists, ripped up their campaign literature, tore off their rosettes and then drove off chanting: ‘Ukip’,” he said.

Kent Police confirmed they were investigating the incident. A statement said: “It is alleged that a rosette was torn from the clothes of a 46-year-old man who was canvassing in the area. Enquiries are ongoing to locate the suspect.”

Mr Scobie last night appealed for anyone with information to help the police investigation.

“This was an appalling incident and very frightening for the people involved,” he said.

“The individuals in question were clearly sympathetic to Farage’s party and while we are of course not suggesting this had anything to do with Ukip’s campaign in the seat, it is just the latest example of the negativity Farage has bought to the area.”

Among them was Gary Field, a former EDL organiser with assault convictions who was photographed at the rally by the Mail on Sunday.

A Ukip spokesman told the Star: “This has been happening quite a lot in that people misappropriate our stuff.

“We utterly denounce any thuggery by anybody towards any political party.”

Mr Field was also identified by eyewitnesses as one of the gang who attacked Stand up to Ukip activists.

Norman Thomas, who runs community magazine Thanet Watch, was selling magazines nearby when Mr Field and his followers struck.

He told the Star: “Suddenly from out of nowhere came 10 or so people with St George’s flags and Ukip placards.

“They attacked the Stand Up to Ukip people, ripping up their posters and throwing them all along the sea front.”

The gang screamed: “Commie scum” at the three women and one man as they pursued them into a nearby pub, according to the local resident.

EDL nazi flop in Oxford, England

Anti-racists beat back EDL thugs in Oxford protest

Monday 6th March 2015

THE racist English Defence League (EDL) flopped miserably when it tried to demonstrate in Oxford at the weekend.

Hundreds of trade unionists, students and anti-racism campaigners were joined by Oxford’s Mayor Councillor Mohammed Abbasi, councillors and parliamentary candidates when they staged a counter-demonstration against EDL thugs on Saturday.

More than 300 people attended the counter-demonstration against the EDL’s gathering of 100.

Police mobilised 500 officers — meaning that yet again the EDL added to the tax burden of residents in the communities it targets.

A police officer was injured by a missile thrown from the EDL demonstration and three men were arrested.

A Thames Valley Police spokesman said: “A Thames Valley Police officer sustained a minor head injury during the operation. He suffered cuts to his head after objects were thrown but is okay.”

The counter-demonstration was supported by trade unions and anti-fascist groups including Unite Against Fascism (UAF).

UAF joint secretary Weyman Bennett said: “The response from the town was brilliant. The mayor and councillors came, trade unionists came.

“The EDL tried several times to attack the counter-demonstration. What was clear was the fact that it failed to divide the town and also that the EDL failed to intimidate the anti-fascists mobilised against the members. It failed in numbers and the anti-racist message prevailed.”

Several thousand people joined “Say no to racism” demonstrations last Sunday, opposing anti-Islamic and racist “Reclaim Australia” rallies called by extreme right-wing groups in 16 capital and regional cities across the country. The largest turnout was in Melbourne’s Federation Square, where about 2,000 people outnumbered the 500 or so anti-Islam protestors: here.

EDL ringleader jailed for racist violence

Friday 12th December 2014

A VILE English Defence League ringleader who “enjoyed every minute” of violent scenes that included torching a Pakistani flag during a rally was jailed yesterday alongside fellow “racists.”

Lee Joshua, who was sentenced to 16 months, was among 200 EDL supporters who left 30 police officers injured after pelting them with paving slabs and bottles during the disorder in Birmingham in July last year.

Mr Joshua, who later posted an image of himself burning a copy of the Koran on Facebook, was said to be at the forefront of attempts to break through police lines despite being on crutches.

He was sentenced along with fellow EDL supporters Jake Hill, who was jailed for 22 months, James Harrington, who got two years and Adam Beebee who received 13 months.

Passing sentence on the men, who all admitted violent disorder, Judge Richard Bond said much of the conduct seen at the EDL rally had been “plainly racist and/or anti-Muslim.”

Crimes That Shook Britain – The London Nail Bomber

22 November 2013

David Copeland (born 15 May 1976) is an English Neo-Nazi militant who became known as the “London Nail Bomber” after a 13-day bombing campaign in April 1999 aimed at London’s black, Bangladeshi and gay communities that resulted in three people killed and more than a hundred injured.

Widely labelled a terrorist, Copeland was a former member of two far right political groups, the British National Party and then the National Socialist Movement. Over three successive weekends between 17 and 30 April, Copeland placed homemade nail bombs, each containing up to 1,500 four-inch nails, in holdalls that he left in public spaces around London.

The first bomb was placed outside the Iceland supermarket in Electric Avenue, Brixton, an area of south London with a large black population. The second was in Brick Lane in the East End of London, which has a large Bangladeshi community. The third was inside the Admiral Duncan pub in Soho’s Old Compton Street, the heart of London’s gay community.

The bombs killed three people, including a pregnant woman, and injured 139, four of whom lost limbs. Copeland was diagnosed by five psychiatrists as having paranoid schizophrenia, while one diagnosed a personality disorder not serious enough to avoid a charge of murder. His plea of guilty to manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility was not accepted by the prosecution or jury. He was convicted of murder on 30 June 2000, and given six concurrent life sentences. In 2007 the High Court ruled that he must serve at least 50 years.

Far-right extremist British soldier jailed for two years for building nail bomb

Ryan McGee kept bomb in his room with a collection of weapons

Jon Stone

Friday 28 November 2014

A British soldier with far-right political sympathies has been jailed for two years for building a nail bomb.

Ryan McGee, 20, constructed the device and packed it with 181 metal screws, bits of glass and explosives inside a glass jar.

Police discovered the device while they searched a home in Eccles, Greater Manchester, in connection with an unrelated investigation in November last year. Prosecutors said the bomb was “viable”.

Officers also found a collection of guns, knives and extremist right-wing material in McGee’s room, as well as the bomb-making manual The Anarchist Cookbook. The walls of the room had English Defence League (EDL) flags on them.

The soldier, who was arrested whilst serving in Germany, admitted to possessing a document containing information of a kind likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism, and to a second charge of making an explosive device.

The court heard McGee kept a journal entitled Ryan’s Story Book with stickers of Scooby Doo and birds on the front filled with drawings of guns, machetes, knuckledusters and knives and images of several paramilitary soldiers. It also contained references to right-wing groups such as the National Front, KKK and BNP, the court heard.

At sentencing, Recorder of London Brian Barker said the device could have done damage “in the wrong hands”.

“The fact of the matter is any explosive device in the wrong hands could cause untold misery to anyone on the receiving end. Sadly, we live in a violent age. Let’s be quite clear that any experimentation by anybody with these kinds of weapons must lead to severe sentences.”

Following the sentencing, Detective Superintendent Simon Barraclough, from the North West Counter Terrorism Unit, said McGee had “stepped well over the mark of what can be considered acceptable behaviour”.

“McGee had in his possession a viable improvised device and the material and knowledge of how to make it. He clearly set out to make the device, which could have seriously injured or possibly killed members of the public,” he said.

Anders Breivik massacre: Norway’s worst nightmare. The murder of 77 people by Anders Breivik in Norway is the subject of Åsne Seierstad’s chilling new book. Here, she describes the missed opportunities to stop the killer after he bombed Oslo’s government buildings and headed to the island of Utøya. ‘Ha, they’ve assumed it’s Islamic terrorism, he thought.
