Red, White and Blue protest pulls in 700 while Martin Reynolds begs police for help

Around seven hundred people turned up in Denby today to protest against the BNP's Red, White and Blue booze-fest. Among the organisations represented were members of various unions including NASUWT, Unite, PCS, CWU, Trade Union Friends of Searchlight and Unison, Notts Stop the BNP, Searchlight, Hope not Hate, Derby Racial Equality Council, UAF and a whole bunch of locals determined never to have the BNP anywhere near their homes and families again.

They may well have got their way. Around two hundred and fifty police officers, some in riot gear, were deployed, plus a helicopter was keeping an eye on things from above for most of the day. The cost must have been astronomical - and all to protect a load of fascists, their minders and scum like Petra Edelmannova, chair of the far-right Czech National Party, who is a guest of the BNP this weekend.

The police were pretty much everywhere - though mainly at the gathering-point, where there was a number of speakers throughout the afternoon, and at the entrance to the RWB itself - though that seemed to be well-covered by a number of thugs who looked ready to kill and eat anyone who pissed them off.

The march from the village to the site was marred by a brief fracas between anti-fascists and BNP members after the former were attacked by the latter. The groups were separated by police. On several occasions, anti-fascists tried to break through police lines to enter the RWB site itself but were beaten back by riot police and officers with dogs. Apart from these brief interludes, the event went off peacably, with the assistant chief constable of Derbyshire Police Peter Goodman stating: 'We did have an incident which took place with a small number of people, but the majority of people who have come here today behaved impeccably.'

Six arrests were made during the attempts to break through police lines (including across the fields behind the site) but a further twenty-seven occurred as the groups began to disperse and return to their homes or vehicles, when they were in many cases set upon by BNP supporters.

Some of the more interesting action took place behind the scenes and well out of the public eye. One of our supporters had a receiver that could pick up the police band and we were treated to a breathless step by step account of the chase over the fields that only ended (for us) when the noise from the police helicopter drowned out everything else.

Once back on the radio, one of our group pointed out that the police referred to us as 'reds' all the way through the day, including the anarchists - described as a 'bunch of reds' even though they were dressed all in black. Nice to know the police aren't biased in any way.

At 1214 a message was sent to BNP security stating, 'security on the front gate, be aware the reds are on their way up'. There were a number of delays which led to the BNP's Head of Security Martin Reynolds getting in a major panic and yelling for help from the police and anyone else in the vicinity, leading to the police having to tell him (at 1310) to 'breathe deep and calm down...there's too many security on the main gate and it's starting to look a bit shabby'.

Despite having eight of his official gorillas and numerous vicious-looking thugs with him on the main gate, Reynolds was still in a panic at having to face thirty peaceful anti-fascists and called for help again, only to be told by a clearly angry control 'that's enough'. Having embarrassed Reynolds into silence, the controller wearily ordered another couple of officers to head up to the main gate, just to stop his whining. Shortly after this, the police insisted that BNP security instituted a rota system rather than the current random mess where anyone who is a violent thug is automatically deemed to be a member of the security team. Clearly the current security team in the BNP is full of amateurs who simply create problems for the police.

All in all, a fantastic turnout, some excellent speakers, a good march in (mostly) nice weather and the point that the BNP is not welcome in Denby was well and truly made, despite the twat who illegally sells samurai swords, guns, knives and air rifles in his tatty shop sticking pro-BNP flags and posters up all over it. Well done to the organisers and everybody who travelled from afar and let's hope the BNP can take a hint and hold their festival on Nick Griffin's land next year. If he likes the festival so much, let him put up with the noise, the drunkeness, the dodgy toilets and the scum infesting the area around his home. The people of Denby have had enough.

You seen all the lies on Stormfront? They're saying Ketlan wasn't there, Denise organised the attacks and all sorts of shit. Most of them started by that rancid old dog Kate Dermody, gluehead Kevvy Watmuffs manky bit of stuff.

Good point. Fuck off and infest Griffins land. He might let you use his barn (as the BNP membership paid for it and have never been allowed inside it yet).

'You seen all the lies on Stormfront?'

Quotes from Stormfront

'All shops in the village have now been closed by the Police (and probably Pubs too).'

No, I used a couple of shops myself during the course of the day and so did many other people including hundreds of locals. You really do go out of your way to make yourselves look like morons.

'I have read that Denise Garside was organising violence against the woman and shild visitors at the festival, any violence which occurs is done to her and she has blood on her hands.'

Tut-tut, what a liar you are, Kate. Denise was at work a hundred miles or so away. She could do a lot worse than consult her solicitor about your libels.

'Further to one of my earlier posts, I have been informed that it was not the Police who stopped the Reds from getting onto the Site but hundreds of BNP members.'

The BNP stopped nobody getting on the site at all - they hid behind the police all day, whimpering. Fucking la-las.

'red bastards attacking a family event'

Nobody attacked anything (except a couple of over-enthusuastic BNP yobs who had a go at some of our peaceful anti-fascists.

'i,ve just come from the rwb and going back in a few minutes .there was a call for people to the front gates and within a minute or so there was loads of people there not that the security needed it they could more than handle the situation if needed .later there were supposedly reds seen in the fields at back of tent site again within 60 seconds security were there in force followed by about 250 able bodied men needless to say again it was a false alarm.'

Strange because I have a transcript of most of the chase, taken while the event was happening, and it was just the police in pursuit. 250 able-bodied men weren't mentioned once. Not surprising really as the BNP couldn't get 250 able-bodied men together if it tried. Not unless they were queuing up to star in Dicky Barnbrook's next gay-porn film.

ROFLMAO Fucking hysterical. Worra laugh!

What, Nick Griffin let the oiks into his barn? Whatever next?

The BNP sheepl, loyal Griffinites and so-called "rebels" alike, deserve old Cyclops.

When all the rebels follow the lead of Chris Hill and return to stick tongues up Nick Griffin's arse, they can all help fund Cyclops's future campaigns: -

THE TRUTH LIMOSINE

THE TRUTH LEARJET

& THE TRUTH CRUISELINER

You all deserve Nick Griffin, you loser scum.

The fact you had to hide behind the keystone cops clones from Life On Mars, preying on antifascist women and children returning to their cars shows that British fascists are absolute cowards brainwashed into believing Hitler is some sort of hero, and Nick Griffin is your saviour.

PETER PIPER said...

Just how many white supremacist scumfucks turned up for the Nazifest, anyway?

Will we ever get the proper figure, what with Griffin likely to pocket the proceeds to help pay for the renovation of his retirement cottage in Croatia.

BRAVADO VERSUS ACCOUNTS

Announce the attendance figure is high and what's remaining of the rank an file membership will want to know in whose pocket the money is going.

Announce the attendance figure was was low, and Griffin is acknowledging that the BNP is a party for misfits who can't be arsed turning up for their own events.

Either way, it's a no-win situation for Nick Griffin and criminal-minded fraudsters.

LOL

Ang said...

Shame about the "Life On Mars" policing.

Hope people shot some YouTube-syle live video footage to pass to the Police Complaints Commission to complain about the heavy-handed policing.

If there are police officers supporting the BNP, this is a dismissable offence, and any evidence of collusion between the police and the BNP must be exposed to the public realm.

Reynolds is a steroid fuelled sexual deviant of low intelligence. Even within BNP security circles the guys have little respect for his organisational ability. Griffin was told this when Bennett left but word has it Griffin wanted him in the top job so the could swap stories about their sexual perversions.

I love it when Nick Griffin is looking feeble.

The Comment to Reynolds to "calm down and take a deap breath" was shortly after a large black dildo was inserted in his bottom.

Great Shite Records have started up again, courtesy of Griffinite thugs and karoake nightmares Joey and Alan Smith, who have thrown their toys out of their cot after being belittled by Lily Allen's piss take about the BNP.

http://www.walesonline.co.uk/news/wales-news/2008/08/17/lily-s-right-on-song-to-upset-bnp-91466-21546583/

The most stupid line in the song goes "“You like to think yourself as a flower. You’ve no political power.”

Well, Smith brothers, despite the Griffinite hype of the RW and B, its clearly obvious which cult of Odinist twats has no power, lol.

Racist attacks carried out by BNP members are bad enough. To launch such a tuneless, unpoetic white supremacist dirge upon our ears is musical genocide.

How many BNP members will actually buy this piece of shite, especially knowing the proceeds will end up in the greedy pockets of Griffo?

Answers on a postcard........

lol

Wow, you guys really turned out! Way to go.

a very public sociologist said...

Is it really necessary to allow semi-homophobic and childish comments on this blog, like the last one by Mr Fister?

Anyway, here'a yet another report about Saturday's action.

That was true but now some of the nice fluffly middle class who Griffin now surrounds himself cant put up with the stream of sexual filth from Reynolds big fat gob and have told Griffin he should ditch the swinger pervert.
