Bristol Anti-Fascists Say: Stop the EDL

Let’s defend ourselves against the English Defence League!

The EDL are marching in Bristol on the 14th of July. The counter- mobilisation is in full swing, so get involved. There have been alot of posts on Bristol Indymedia about the EDL demo.

Now is the time for our call to action. Come to Templemeads area and line the route at 10am on the 14th to give them the welcome they deserve. Stay alert. Stay mobile. Bring your mates

There are many many ways to show your opposition to the EDL: don’t let them march, don’t give ’em a lift in your taxi, put posters up in shops, don’t serve them drinks, raise awareness about their farcical attempts to disguise their homophobia, chat to work colleagues, decorate the city…. do whatever you feel comfortable with but now is the time to get a crew together and take action against racism in our city.

We want to meet them at the station to stop them marching for any distance. We will resist them wherever they turn and we will be watching them. Let’s defend ourselves against the EDL! Zero tolerance of fascism on our streets.

Child Porn & Murder Convictions for BNP Organiser & Son

Ian Si’Ree

“A BNP organiser and former candidate has been found guilty of possessing child pornography.

Ian Si’Ree of Vale Road,Rhyl in North Wales admitted making and possessing 138 illegal images of child sex abuse. Police also found other images that while not illegal in themselves displayed a sexual interest in young girls, Mold Crown Court was told.

Judge Niclas Parry said that what the defendant needed to understand was that what he chose to view was actually happening to children, some as young as eight.

Officers were carrying out a search at the home of suspect James Si’ree during the investigation into the murder of takeaway delivery driver Gabor Sarkozi at Meliden. The images were found on computers used by James’ father Ian Si’Ree.

Si’ree was placed on supervision for three years on condition that he follows a sex offender treatment programme run by the probation service. He was also placed on the sex offender register. Si’ree admitted 10 charges of making and possessing the images at an earlier hearing.

James Si’ree

James Si’ree,22,who is also a BNP member and his uncle Gary Bland, 42, of Bryn Avenue, Rhyl were jailed for life in May for the murder of Mr Sarkozi.

In 2001, Ian Si’ree originally from West Yorkshire was found not guilty of raping and indecently assaulting a 14-year-old girl.

Jurors also acquitted Si’Ree of three charges of sexual assault on a 12-year-old girl. Following the trial, Karate teacher Si’ree fled his Bradford home and moved to the Welsh seaside town of Rhyl.

Si’Ree was the BNP organiser for Rhyl and stood as a Welsh Assembly candidate in 2011, parliamentary candidate in 2010 and council candidate in 2008.”

Anti-Fascist Network Formed

A national network of anti-fascists has been formed.

276833_436598253070336_14181589_n

An Introduction to AFN:

An Anti-Fascist Network is being built by independent and grassroots groups
seeking to working together against the rise of fascism in our communities.

Over the last year alone, the English Defence League (EDL) have held as
many as 20 marches or static protests and attempted to disrupt anti-racist
meetings andbenefit gigs. Anti-fascists have opposed the EDL wherever they
go and continue to shut down BNP meetings, but we should be more
effective. The aim of the Anti-Fascist Network is to support local
actions, ensuring that anti-fascists are never outnumbered, join together
to counter regional and national EDL events, share resources and provide
legal support.

The Anti-Fascist Network is not about telling people how to campaign in
their areas, what type of anti-fascist activity they should undertake or
what political analysis they should adopt. We simply want to cooperate to
defeat fascism and organised racism.

The Anti-Fascist Network is non-hierarchical, will never work with the
police and is not affiliated to any political party.

Brighton Anti-Fascists, Portsmouth Anarchists, Plymouth Antifa, Welsh
Antifa, 3 Counties Anti-Fascist Alliance , Liverpool Anti-Fascists, Wessex Solidarity, Bristol Antifascists
Nottingham Antifascists and ALARM ask you to join us and becomepart of the
Anti-Fascist Network.

BNP suffer massive defeat in Worcester

Carl Martin Mason the British National Party candidate for the Nunnery ward in Worcester suffered a massive defeat last night in the local elections by only managing to scrape together a pathetic (but very heartening!) 150 votes compared with overall winner’s Labour who took 1011 votes.

The conservatives also lost overall control of the city.

Last month Mr Mason and an equally rabid sidekick stormed into the Worcester college of Technology demanding that the college flew a union jack outside the building rather than an EU flag. The pair quickly scarpered when security were called.

“Rachel Gower, head of communications at Worcester College of Technology, returned to her office to find Carl Mason and another man waiting to film him presenting her with the nation’s flag. She called the stunt an “act of intimidation.”


‘Violence with Violence’ – 1993 documentary on anti-fascists

‘Violence with Violence’ – a World in Action documentary covering anti-fascist groups first aired in 1993 – is now available to watch online. It contains footage of the ‘Battle of Welling’ and other anti-fascist demonstrations. Militant anti-fascist organisations, Red Action and Anti-Fascist Action, are featured from around 18.20.

Local fascists terrorist links

In a recent report on ‘radicalisation,’ the Home Affairs Committee warned of the threat posed by extreme far-right terrorism. MPs said, “We received persuasive evidence about the potential threat from extreme far-right terrorism.”

“The ease of travel and communications between countries in Europe and the growth of far-right organisations… suggest that the current lack of firm evidence should not be a reason for neglecting this area of risk.”

Terrorism is not a new or unheard of phenomenon within British fascism. The most noteworthy case happened in 1999, when David Copeland, a neo-Nazi and former British National Party member, killed 3 people and injured 139 in nail bomb attacks in London.

The aftermath of the bomb blast at the Admiral Duncan pub in Soho. The bomb was part of a campaign against black people and homosexuals by neo-Nazi David Copeland.

More recently, sinister but thankfully less deadly attacks have been thwarted. In 2007 a British People’s Party regional organiser, Martyn Gilleard, was jailed for 16 years after police found him in possession of explosives, live ammunition and 39,000 child porn images. In 2010, Ian Davison and his son Nicky, both of County Durham, were jailed for producing a chemical weapon. The ‘Aryan Strike Force’ members had manufactured enough ricin to kill 9 people.

But far-right terrorism can also been found closer to home.

Bep (left) and his friend – also a South African white-supremacist – Arthur Kemp

One of the founding members of the Herefordshire British National Party branch is a convicted terrorist. South African, Lambertus Nieuwhof (or ‘Bep’ as he is more commonly known), is a previous member of a white supremacist group that planted a bomb in a mixed-race school in 1992. Bep, who was part of Eugene Terre’Blanche’s Afrikaner Resistance Movement, apparently received a 12 month suspended sentence for his part in the bomb plot.

In 1994 he moved to Britain and became involved in far-right politics, setting up and administering a number of BNP websites. Since his exposure he seems to have dropped out of political activity, at least locally. Instead he has spent his time running website-hosting services, ‘Vidronic Online’ and ‘Noisy Dinosaur,’ from his home in Peterchurch, Herefordshire.

Martin Roberts – ex-Worcester BNP

Previous candidate, organiser and treasurer of the Worcester BNP branch, Martin Roberts, also has some unsavoury terrorist links. Roberts, who now lives in Potter Heigham in Norfolk, was once described as ‘the Godfather of Worcestershire nationalism’ by his colleagues within the local group.

Last year he was emailed by Norwegian ultra-right terrorist and murderer, Anders Breivik. Breivik, who killed 76 people, had sent out his manifesto to contacts before carrying out his attacks.

Roberts had also run a web-shop selling tacky far-right merchandise, called ‘Calder Designs.’ Items he sold included badges bearing the names and logos of neo-Nazi groups ‘Combat 18’ and ‘Blood & Honour.’ The website was hosted by Nieuwhof’s company, Noisy Dinosaur.
