British National Party And Anti-Fascists Clash In London

British National Party (BNP) supporters and anti-fascist campaigners clashed outside the Palace of Westminster today.

“I’ve put my best suit on today and come out for a peaceful demonstration and this is what’s happened. And to think they call us thugs!” one BNP supporter who suffered a large cut to his nose told the Independent.

BNP activists holding banners saying “hate preachers out” were heavily outnumbered by anti-fascists with “smash the BNP” and “say no to Islamaphobia” signage, the Independent reported. The group of counter-protesters, thought to be a part of Unite Against Fascism (UAF), chanted “fascist scum” and “you racist Nazis” at their rivals.

According to the report, Nick Griffin, whose party was banned by police from protesting in Woolwich over fears of “serious disruption to the life of the community” and the potential for “serious disorder”, arrived at around 2.30pm to the sound of the national anthem.

“Due to police concerns about serious disruption to the life of the community, and the potential for serious disorder should this counter protest confront the BNP organised protest, police have imposed conditions under Section 14 of the Public Order Act.Those conditions state that the protest must take place in Whitehall Gardens junction with Whitehall.A group of about 300, also believed to be part of the UAF protest, were stopped in Old Palace Yard junction with Abdingdon Street.This group have now been notified of the conditions imposed under Section 14 and requested to move to Whitehall Gardens to continue their protest. Officers are in negotiation with this group.” a  Scotland Yard spokesman told the newspaper.

    Dear British People,

    “BNP activists holding banners saying “hate preachers out” were heavily outnumbered by anti-fascists with “smash the BNP” and “say no to Islamaphobia” signage, the Independent reported. The group of counter-protesters, thought to be a part of Unite Against Fascism (UAF), chanted “fascist scum” and “you racist Nazis” at their rivals.’

    You are civilized and brave.
    You defeated the Nazis.
    Thank you, Thank you and Thank you again.

    Do that again. We are behind you. No Double Standards please. Do not follow the Americans blindly. You do have a GOD given brain.

    ********God Save the Queen.*********

    Thank you for bringing Ceylon to the 20th Century, and make it as civilized as possible when you left, but you did leave early, and left room for the Sinhala Buddhist Racists to creep in. Creep in they did.

    Unfortunately, the Racist Sinhala Buddhism has created havoc in the country, changed the name to Sri Lana (no big deal), but gave a special place to Sinhala Buddhist Myth, over the other Myths, a special place and protection by the new constitution, and marginalized the non-Sinhala Buddhists, that resulted in a 30 year separatist war.

    Unfortunately, the current Sinhala Buddhists are continuing the same policy, the Sinhala Buddhist Racism, the roots go back ti the Myths of Monk Mahanama, 5th Century CE.

    Unfortunately, in Sri Lanka, the so called BBS, the Sinhala Buddhist Nazis are supported by the state. The other day, a cattle guy on yellow robes, wanted by the police, set fire to himself, assisted auto ignition.

    BBS should be treated in similar fashion. The sad part when they had peaceful march against the BBS ,the police were against protest march.
    Srilanka has to learn from this to kick the BBS out,

        Not only the TNA but anyone or group who is trying to promote a separate state for tamils should be treated the same way.

    Now the real picture of Great Britain, the Maha Raj of Commonwealth is on public display. It is the clash between those who say that Britain should be for the British and those who say no to British Nationalism or British Nazism. History is being repeated not by Germans but by their foes.

    Sri Lanka can take it up under “Any Other Business” of The Agenda of 2013 CHOGM in November 2013. All “Brown Sahibs” attending the CHOGM can ask the British Maha Raj for a reasonable share of the “Common Wealth” an if denied, will surely support disbanding Commonwealth.
