Pitiful Infidels Humbled in Liverpool

I’ve seen few more pitiful sights than the North West Infidels and their ragtag band of allies outside Liverpool town hall last night. A mere twenty of the oxygen thieves made it to the “national demonstration”, and as they huddled around their ridiculous banner, jabbering incoherently about “paedos” and “terrorist supporters”, they demonstrated nothing except … Continue reading

Saturday 3rd November saw the North West Infidels’ demonstrate outside Liverpool Town Hall. Their aim was to put pressure on Mayor Joe Anderson and stop him allowing “the IRA” from marching in the city. To say it didn’t quite go to plan would be an understatement. The NWI had put out a huge national callout … Continue reading

Far-right embarrass themselves at the polls – and at the count

National Front members including Peter Tierney, Liam Pinkham, Stephen Dumont and Gary Lucas try to unveil an "Anti Zionist League" banner during the election count

The far-right failed miserably at yesterday’s elections. This was a nationwide trend, with the BNP losing all of the seats it contested, but it was particularly heartening to see on Merseyside. Given all the commotion they’ve been causing recently, it remains the case that the people of Liverpool resoundingly reject the politics of hate. Not … Continue reading

Liverpool Antifascists clash with National Front and the Infidels

LiverAF vs NF

Last night, as a result of pressure from students and the threat of a disruptive anti-fascist demonstration, Liverpool University cancelled today’s mayoral debate. It was to feature the National Front, BNP and English Democrats, and stopping it was decisively a victory. Liverpool Antifascists held a rally today to underline this point.

The British National Party is fielding just one candidate in the Wirral – Joe Killen, standing for Tranmere and Birkenhead ward.

anitfa

On November 30, three million workers across the public sector took strike action. It was the biggest day of action in a generation, and in Liverpool it was marked by workers marching through the city to rally at St George’s Hall. However, upset at being reduced to irrelevance by events, the far-right decided to put … Continue reading

Neo-Nazis not welcome in the Swan

[Edit: originally, this post was titled “Neo-Nazis booted from the Swan. This falsely gave the impression that there was some kind of physical confrontation or fight, when the only thing that passed between fascists and anti-fascists were harsh words before they decided to flee. The title has been amended for this reason.] Today (October 9th) … Continue reading

The far right, homosexuality, and paedophilia

By “Malatesta“ Whilst trawling the far right websites is by turns scary, hilarious and stupefying, it rarely fails to be unpredictable. As we all know the BNP and other Nazi grupuscules are fairly candid about their rampant homophobia but they often come a cropper when they realise that ‘iron hoofs’ are in fact part of … Continue reading
