Following their wash-out in Wakefield on Saturday, the EDL are trying again to muster more than double figures in Hartlepool this Saturday by the cunning strategy of inviting any old Nazi on their demo. So Hartlepool will unfortunately be an unwilling host to not only the EDL but also the North East Infidels and various other hangers-on – folks who quit the EDL because it wasn’t right-wing enough for them.

Report from Brighton Anti-Fascists
Around forty comrades made the trip from around the country to Exeter to check out the last EDL national demo of the year (don’t worry folks, there’s still a few regionals to counter).
Perhaps ignorantly we’d considered Exeter to be a bit of a void politically speaking so we were pleasantly surprised by the size of the turn-out of the Exeter Together effort. Around a thousand locals marched into town from Belmont Park (accompanied by a slow funereal soundtrack of the kind more usually associated with a witch-burning).

Nat Turner’s Revolution
Nat Turner’s rebellion, also called the Southampton Insurrection, is probably the most famous slave uprising in North America. The revolt was brilliantly planned by Turner and took place August 1831 in Southampton County, Virginia. The Turner-led group of ”freedom fighters” killed up to 65 people of European descent, the highest number of fatalities caused by a slave uprising in the American South. Though the rebellion was quelled within a few days, Turner survived in hiding for more than two months afterward.
The most successful slave uprising in the Western Hemisphere was the Haitian Revolution, which began in 1791. Dutty Boukman, an educated slave from Jamaica who was sold to a French slave master in Haiti, organized and started the revolution that was eventually led by military mastermind Toussaint L’Ouverture. During the war, which culminated in the…

From the pen of Tim Manning:
Those who will honour U.S. Veterans now living need to know that they are honouring men and women who are doing to foreign nations what the USA did to the South during the 1860s through the Period of Reconstruction in the 1870s. We must at least stop celebrating the American Holocaust committed against the Southern people of the Confederate States of America ! ! !
Here’s Mr. Manning several years ago …
Note that no one at the Southern Heritage Preservation Group voiced an objection to this sentiment (its self-styled chaplain “liked” it).
Just a reminder of how some people think.
For the rest of you … for those of you who have served or are serving in the armed forces of the United States, thank you for your service.

Re-blogged from London Anti-Fascists
On Saturday 9th November, notorious fascists and neo-nazi has-beens called a demonstration in support of the jailed leadership of the murderous neo-nazi Golden Dawn party at the Greek Embassy in London.
Over 40 militants from the AFN responded in a co-ordinated action to send a strong message to those attending or thinking about attending neo-nazi and racist demonstrations – that they are not welcomed and they will be opposed. The message was spelt out to them with a “frank discussion” before the demonstration. For all their talk of “smashing the reds” not one of the 12 fascists said a word, instead the sense of sheer fear on their faces would hopefully make an impression and knock some sense in the younger attendees that were present. Around 5 of the younger fascists were escorted out of the pub onto trains by AFN militants and told to fuck…

This is a draft write up from North East Anti-Fascists:
The North East Anti-Fascists took their battle bus into Shotton to oppose the EDL. The very well policed events ensured that the opposing forces were kept apart.
The EDL had very very few people from Shotton on their event our clued up local said.
The Blackhall colliery socialism banner was superb, as was the anti-fascist banner and the anarchist banner.
