This was the smallest national demonstration that the EDL has held in over two years, but no means their least violent. Once more journalists and photographers were targeted by these moronic thugs. Their numbers are shrinking not just because of the growing internal divisions inside the group, but also because of the large number of then (them) who end up arrested.
Newcastle actually witnessed the worst of these thugs today. Yesterday a decision was made to postpone the "Rise against Islamaphobia" event in Newcastle town centre. This did not stop the EDL, the Scottish Defence League, the National Front and the Infidels descending on the town to terrorise innocent shoppers. The atmosphere between the EDL and the Infidels is always frosty, particularly as their leader "Snowy" decided to make an appearance. The Infidels decided to hide behind local NF thug Simon Biggs and his crew of thugs, while the EDL and SDL were more interested in drinking and planning trouble.
After a few hours trying to intimidate people taking part in the "Occupy Newcastle" protest, the combined gangs of alcoholics, drug dealers, thugs and football hooligans made their way to the Union Rooms pub in Central station where the SDL hooligans then decided to settle a few scores with the Infidels. First to get blooded was local Infidel leader Peter Duffy who fell on the stairs and was attacked. He only managed to stand up when "Snowy" Shaw magically appeared assuming it that it was safe for him to do so.
The fighting continued in the streets for a good twenty minutes as the fascists decided to put months and months of internal bickering behind them.
This picture shows exactly how serious the intent is now between the rival fascist groups in the North East.
Hope not hate
