Fascist Boneheads Arrested For Attacks on Anti Jubilee Protesters

Police have arrested two men following a protest in Newcastle in which EDL supporters clashed with people holding an Anti-Jubilee party.

The arrests follow an incident during the protest at Grey’s Monument when firecrackers went off among a crowd of people.

One man suffered a slight injury and received hospital treatment before being discharged.

Anthony Crawford, 22, of Elmway, Chester-le-Street, has been charged with common assault and a public order offence and will appear before Newcastle Magistrates.

A 45-year-old man from South Tyneside was arrested on suspicion of affray and he has been bailed pending further enquiries.

Chief Superintendent Gary Calvert, Newcastle Area Command, said: “We’re committed to facilitating peaceful protests but we also have a responsibility for public safety and where crimes are being committed we will take action.

“I’d like to reassure people that we’ve been carrying out an investigation into incidents which took place during a demonstration on June 4 and have made an arrests in relation to it. The investigation is ongoing.”

Deputy leader of Newcastle City Council, Councillor Joyce McCarty, added: “Newcastle is renowned for its friendliness.

“One of our greatest strengths is our diversity, and as a city council we are doing all that we can with our partners and our communities to ensure that it remains a progressive and peaceful city where everyone who comes here is welcomed.”

    Console ourselves that if this lot had tried to gatecrash 99%plus of any ‘Jubilee’ street party held they would have been told where to go. Defending democracy and free speech by fascism??? Like using turps to put a bloody fire out with.
