Around 1,000 people turned out on the rainy streets of Brighton last Sunday to humiliate a sorry and soggy bunch of racists on their annual March for England.

Barely 100 thugs, mostly from the English Defence League, were harassed by anti-fascists on their way to their assembly point.

Then they shuffled a short distance along the seafront and back, escorted by a huge police mobilisation, before being sent home.


Nazis are going out of fashion

Around 30 people protested outside a newly opened Thor Steinar clothes shop in Finchley, north London, on Friday of last week.

The notorious fascist chain is linked to the Nazi German National Democratic Party.

The protest, called by Unite Against Fascism (UAF), forced it to close early.

The Bravanese Somali people whose community centre was firebombed by the English Defence League last year have their new office up the road. Finchley is also home to a large Jewish community.

More protests this Saturday and Sunday, assemble 11am, 345 Ballards Lane, N12 8LJ

Anti-fascists protest against National Front in Cardiff

Some 150 anti-fascists turned out in the rain in Cardiff last Sunday to oppose a planned “White Pride” rally by the Nazi National Front.

With only a week’s notice UAF Wales organised the protest. The turnout seems to have put the fascists off trying to hold their vile rally.
