14 arrests at Preston EDL demo




Pics of the EDL in action (click to enlarge)
Lancashire Police made 14 arrests this afternoon as the English Defence League staged a protest in Preston. But the city appears to have avoided the large-scale trouble which has blighted similar demonstrations.

Around 1000 EDL protesters gathered in front of the city's Harris Museum at 1pm, chanting, waving flags and letting off fireworks. At the other side of a police cordon, around 250 people had gathered at an anti-EDL demonstration organised by Preston Trades Council and Preston Unite Against Fascism. A police spokesman said: "Although there were minor scuffles among the EDL demonstrators, there were only a handful of arrests for drunken or disorderly behaviour."

The EDL demonstration was called to protest against a larger mosque being built on the site of an existing one in Watling Street Road in Preston.

@JohnP it's even worse than that. If you look at the full resolution photo, the text actually reads "Sport are troop's".

The gurning coked-up "Billy No Mates" looking upwards in the centre of the photo, seems to be keen to show off the flesh on his chest to passers-by.

Must be part of the EDL's phoney Lesbian and Gay division, as they probly think proper gay people act like that.

He's got manboobs. I'd seriously think twice about confronting him for being a tit, antifascists.

Mess with him and he'll squish you with his blubber.

Too much Wetherspoons cheap beer gives men tits.

If the fascist EDL are as intelligent as they claim, they do a bloody good job looking like ignorant thickoes.

The man behind him looks extremely frightened Mr Tatoo is gay. So much for the EDL's all-embracing LGBT division.

An EDL troll in the Mercia newspaper is telling lies claiming that it is the anti-racists who threw fireworks:

I got as far as one policeman telling a young girl how he would be justified punching a drunk in the face before abandoning all hope that this programme would be in any way rational.

What did that copper call the UAF, state robots.

It would be good to see those policemen having to publically explain their actions, both during the protests and later. But I doubt it'll happen.
