Courageous bus passenger praised for speaking out against ‘racist rant’

Originally posted on Liverpool Antifascists:

CourtA BRAVE bus passenger who challenged a woman’s drunken, racist rant was attacked and spat on, Newbury magistrates have been told.

Afterwards, fellow Thatcham travellers praised victim Christine Dare’s courageous stand. Miss Dare later told police: “I had to act. It was too much to ignore.”

In the dock on Thursday, July 10, was 35-year-old Tara Elaine King, of Fallows Road, Padworth.
Helen Waite, prosecuting, said Ms King was talking to the bus driver in Thatcham, loudly praising the English Defence League, making racist comments and swearing.
Several passengers were incensed, said Ms Waite, “but it was Ms Dare who had the gumption to do something about it”.

Having vainly asked Ms King to keep her opinions to herself and moderate her language because there was a young child nearby, Ms Dare approached the driver and asked him to act, magistrates were told.
But, said Ms Waite, the driver told…

Polish “Fascists Against Nazism” in Britain

Originally posted on NYC ANTIFA:

An illuminating backgrounder on fascist organizing in Britain’s Polish immigrant community. There is the same dynamic here in New York. But can you be a fascist and an anti-Nazi at the same time? Maciej Zurowski says Yes.

‘Christ of Nations’ in London

Maciej Zurowski

Workers Have No Country

It was one of those typical London neighbourhood events, where crusties and punks rub shoulders with local working class families. On June 21, a free techno, punk and reggae open-air festival in Tottenham’s Markfield Park, dedicated to the ‘international language of music’, offered residents of the north London borough a chance to enjoy the heat wave together. But the fun ended abruptly when up to 40 football hooligan types crashed the party, pelting bottles, throwing rocks and shooting flares at unsuspecting visitors. A young man was stabbed – fortunately, his injuries were superficial.

ANTI BRITISH LEFTY COMMIE TRAITOR SCUM

ABLCTS Cover

After taking (what I view) a considerable amount of time getting my shit together – depression, complete lack of funds and general laziness – I will be releasing my new book at the beginning of next month. This has been my most challenging compilation of poetry to put out to date (and I believe it to be one of my best). The other “political” books I wrote before had the message, but with this book I’ve managed to find a medium between the political stuff and my more “personal” works, which I think is a lot more effective in depicting the struggle we — the working-class – are facing.

I’d like to thank Imran Rifai, specifically, for all his hard work designing this awesome cover to the book. Really pleased with how it’s come out.

Anyone interested in the book can pre-order it here: http://www.andycarrington.co.uk/anti-british-lefty

If you could share the link around as much as you like, that’d be a big help, too.

Oh, and I’ll be donating £1 from each sale to the 0161 Festival in Manchester next year to support Jose Shlebbers and all the great, anti-fash bands that are gonna be on the bill.

Growing opposition to Britain First’s pathetic ‘national tour’

Originally posted on Anti-Fascist Network:

Britain First – the new kids on the block of right-wing racial and religious hatred – have spent the last few days on a ‘national tour’ of pub function rooms. Previous to this their main activity has been a series of controversial publicity stunts ‘invading’ mosques. With a notable lack of irony they chose to protest against Muslims supposedly imposing Islam on everyone by forcing their way into mosques around the country, intimidating elderly Muslims and forcing Bibles into their hands.

They have got a bunch of publicity and a lot of Facebook ‘likes’ from stunts involving a handful of members, but have never held a demo or been forced to show their hand on the streets in terms of how much support they actually have. So the last few days of their ‘national tour’ have been an interesting illustration of how Facebook likes relate to real world boots on…

Daily Mail journalist busted posing as Muslim extremist to stir up hatred

Originally posted on Pride's Purge:

(not satire – it’s the Daily Mail!)

The following comment was posted on a online chat forum for Muslims yesterday inviting responses:

Mail Muslim extremist

Some of the other members of the forum became suspicious by the strange comment and decided to check the new member’s ISP address:

mail Muslim extremist 1

More up-to-date checks of the ISP address by other members of the forum showed the comment was posted by someone working at the Daily Mail Group (the Evening Standard used to be part of the Daily Mail Group):

mail Muslim extremist 2

The whole thread has now been deleted from the forum but it can still be viewed on Google’s webcache here.

So it seems the Daily Mail ordered one of their journalists to pose as an extremist on a Muslim forum to try to elicit comments they could use for an anti-Muslim story.

Fortunately they were busted.

In a civilised society, a national newspaper journalist trying to stir up hatred and controversy with lies and…
