A demonstration in Sunderland by 150 supporters of the EDL breakaway group the "Infidels" is turning nasty.
Groups of Infidelss from the Noirth East and North West have been joined by the National Front and are throwing firecrackers at antifascists who are also marching.

Being peaceful again, are they?? Peaceful lovely sweet little Nazis...how many local people who either back or oppose the new mosque actually WANT little Hitlers and assorted thuggish rabble marching through what is their estate with an army of police 'defending' their right??? Are innocent locals being targeted by outside troublemakers?? Of course. Local Muslims have offered to peacefully build bridges with local (Christian and non-religious) residents and to help foster understanding. Which is more than the fascists are doing!

Seems to me these people are just looking for a day out, really. Why aren't they at football - oh, yes - much too cerebral for them.

@Matthew & B31, i asked a reasonable question and got less than sensible answers, why??

wb, we shouldn't have to explain that. UAF and other antifascist groups have, since the days of Cable Street and the BUF dedicated to exposing fascism wnenever and whereever they try to organise and spread their filth. They don't like it when we do, probably because they're intrinsically anti-democratic and prone to violent confrontation. That is the bottom line. If the NF choose to behave like knobheads, that's hardly UAF's fault now, is it?? Isn't free speech lovely????

The first question for the asking is 'why were the CxF/EDL/Infidels/BNP/NF there then?' apart to turn a local grievance into a race issue, using firecrackers and drunken violence to do so, of course.
