Fascists Get Fucked in Brighton….Again

4 06 2012

Here’s a couple of links & reposts from the action in Brighton this weekend. Another good day for the Brighton Aniti-Fascists, but in all honesty the biggest mob in town on the day was the police, thousands of them!! – It’s worth noting that a couple of Casuals were arrested for drugs almost as soon as they got off the trains – Maybe they were so pathetic today as they didn’t have the chemical confidence they usually seem to rely upon.

count the baldies – about 30 scumbags are taken to the train station by police.

Couple of quality quotes from the day:

‘If there were no police, there would be no fascists, fact!’  – a member of the public who was asking the police to kindly ‘Piss off so we can get rid of the bastards.’

‘I don’t know why the police don’t just let us sort it out, they (the fascists) would never dare show their faces in Brighton again,’ – Anti-Fascist campaigner.

‘Go on kids, See em off!’ – an elderly lady watching from the railings outside Brighton train station as around a gang of 100 had just legged it down the road in hot pursuit of the 30 fascists being taken to the train station by police.

Fash & Chips

(repost from Schnews)

Casuals United, the football hooligan wing of the EDL, made complete tits of themselves in Brighton today (2nd). In response to their humiliation at March for England the fash thought it would be a good idea to come back in even smaller numbers to have a go at the “rabid hordes of commie UAF gays” that passes for the population of Brighton.

Far right websites, blogs and Facebook pages are already attempting to claim that antifa either a) didn’t turn up, b) ran away, and/or c) attacked patriots unprovoked. In reality the knuckle draggers managed to skulk about in a few pubs (including Belushis, The Saint James & The Amsterdam) while around 100 antifascists stewarded the UK Uncut demo and Palestine Solidarity stall near Churchill Sq. Once the stall had packed up around 3pm the antifascists mobbed up and headed towards Old Steine to confront the racists.

Police halted the majority of the march halfway down North St, meaning only around 30 made it to the bottom of St James Street, where small groups of fash were skulking around making homophobic remarks. A spirited fistfight broke out, though the police waded in before a decisive outcome was reached.

The cops then rounded up most of the EDL and marched them to the train station, with antifascists haranguing them all the way. Many of them then left town with a few others heading back into town to find a pub to defend from Sharia Law.

Antifascists then regrouped for a well earned pint, while others headed to Hollingbury police station to pick up arrested comrades. So far at least 5 antifascists and 5 fascists have been nicked today.

A more complete & concise roundup of the day’s events will be posted in the near future.

Up the punks!!

And a fairly inaccurate one from the local rag: http://www.theargus.co.uk/news/9742009.18_arrested_during_protests_in_Brighton/

As reported in an earlier post, anyone who wants a laugh (or a cry) should look at the casuals united blog. The blatant bullshit they come out with shows their weakness – The Anti Fascist Network has a policy of not exaggerating, and only reporting the truth, so that we may learn from our mistakes. Here’s a quote from an e-mail from an antifascist doing prisoner support:

Just thought i’d share a little story from yesterday,
After 5 fash & 5 anti fash were arrested a group from Brighton Anti Fascists went up to
the holding cells in a mini bus and 2 cars, i think the uaf had a car there
too.

To pass the time in the van we were talking about the day and for a laugh
thought we’d have a look at how the casuals united blog was spinning the day,
and how they would again try to claim victory when there was none

Amazingly their blog stated that they had 30 people outside the cells for
prisoner support!?!?!  One of the funniest things to read when you are actually there with
absolutley no one one else around (its in the middle of no where).

Every one pissed themselves & Jokes were made that we were surrounded on all sides by invisible fascists!

The first fascist to get released new the score and came out & quickly paced off the
other way, maybe the second one had been expecting his mates to care about him,
he headed straight for the van, and as we piled out he shat himself and bolted to
an awaiting taxi.

So either:

A) the fascists did thier prisoner support at the wrong station,
B) they didnt give a fuck about thier mates and went to the pub or,
C) they went home to dream up stories to post on the blog.

Even if they were at the wrong station, i doubt they had 30 as the maximum
number we counted at the hight of thier numbers was 40.

Its good to see them having to resort to such bollox!

Well done all those who went!!

So in summary of the situation in Brighton. The MFE went tits up for the ‘patriots’ on St Georges Day and The hardcore fascists of Casuals United and EDL couldn’t carry out their threats of revenge, and were made to look like the weak extremist group they are. If the Fascists are stubborn enough to want a third crack at the town I guess all they have left to do is a National EDL Demo….are they really that stupid??

****PLEASE NOTE THE RUNNING OF THIS BLOG IS TO BE PASSED TO ANOTHER GROUP SOMETIME NEXT WEEK!!****
