article imageUnite Against Fascism clash with BNP protest

By Richard Milnes     Jun 1, 2013 in Politics
London - The UAF went up against a British National Party demonstration against hate preachers in central London on Saturday, 1 June.
The police arrested 58 members of the far-left Unite Against Fascism (UAF) movement. Due to the large number of arrests an iconic red double-decker London bus had to be used for their containment and removal.
No members of the British National Party were arrested during their ‘Hate Preachers OUT!’ demonstration in memory of murdered Woolwich soldier Drummer Lee Rigby.
As previously revealed on Digital Journal, the UAF is backed by British Prime Minister David Cameron and had one of the Woolwich ‘suspects’ Michael Adebolajo as a speaker at their Harrow demonstration in 2009.
The BNP criticised the “mass media” for their biased reporting of the event and describing that their supporters “clashed” with the UAF protesters, when they were attacked.
BNP member attacked by Cameron’s UAF members for wearing a badge
A BNP member who appeared with blood on his face after UAF members attacked him explained to the media, “This is a peaceful demonstration by the British National Party to demonstrate against hate preachers.
“I was attacked. I’m a member of a legal registered party with over a million voters and I was attacked by these scumbags who are always the ones who cause the trouble; not our people, it’s always them.”
A journalist asks, “Tell us again what happened to you?”
“I was attacked!” He holds his tie and explains, “They saw my BNP badge – and then they attacked me. I’m a member of the British National Party. I stood for election at parliamentary level and at council level and I wasn’t expecting this. I put my best suit on to come here for a peaceful, respectable protest against what happened to poor Lee Rigby and to protest against hate preachers and our inability to throw them out.”

The leader of the British National Party spoke to the media saying, “The family have made a very dignified plea that people shouldn’t use Lee Rigby’s tragic death as a reason to attack other people and we agree with that one hundred percent.
“We’re here to make a political protest to draw attention to a political problem, because if people stick their heads in the sand, if people continue to believe the lie, one that Islam is a religion of peace and two that our involvement in wars like Afghanistan and Iraq isn’t causing problems then more lads will die like Lee Rigby.”
