'
- Aspiring Brit-Führer Griffin’s visit to the town is seen off by Anti-Fascists!''
'
- Nazi ‘flying’ stormtroopers get ‘hammering’ from AFA!
,
- Local Anti-fascists say “Don’t come back!
'
“Master race, you’re having a laugh!” was just one of the many chants that taunted BNP Boot Boys, previously wielding crowbars, truncheons and baseball bats in Leigh town centre, as they were forced, underPolice protection, to tow away their wrecked Landrover, which was literally ‘hammered’ by a larger force of similarly tooled-up anti-fascists from the AFA.
'
The AFA also over turned the Liverpool BNPBranch’s “Save Our Culture” trailer it was towing, which blocked traffic on St. Helens Road for almost an hour.

So much for the BNP’s ‘Battle for Britain’ Roadshow to raise money for aspiring Brit-Führer Nick Griffin’s Euro election campaign in theNorth West. Looking at the damage to their Landrover, that fundraising went into reverse in Leigh on the evening of Friday the 13th March 2009.

Having got wind of the anti-fascist mobilisation against their proposed ‘private fundraising event’ the previous day (the event was originally scheduled to take place at the Pure Night Club on West Bridgewater Street on Friday evening with Nick Griffin billed as the main speaker), the BNP leader failed to show his face in the town whatsoever.
,
Indeed according to BNP sources, spoke instead at a St.Helens venue which is 7 miles away.
.
Whether he did or not is immaterial in reality.
'
What we showed the BNP’s boot boys who did come to Leigh, is that any attempt by them to move into our area will be resisted and that they shouldn’t ever try and come back.

The response to the appeals issued by myself and others, from students from Salford University and the Salford Left Forum, United Against Fascism, the AFA and from local anti-fascists, including members of the Socialist Workers’ Party, Socialist Party, Community Action Party, Labour Party and Respect, at such short notice was tremendous, so much so in fact that the anti-fascist forces were able to successfully see off four of their nazi ‘flying’ storm troopers - who were just about to attack those assembling for the anti-fascist counter protest, and give their Landrover, trailer (and one of theBNP thugs) something of a ‘hammering’ in the process.
'
They certainly left Leigh with their tails between their legs, with many shouting after them as they left “….and don’t come back!”

Well done everyone.
'
Think we can rightly notch the whole thing up as a victory for our side.

NWN: This marxist dinosaur from the communist stalinist era was heavily involved in the armed attack on BNP members including Tony Ward.

Has he been arrested yet ?

Hall lives in the area known as 'the bongs' where the only black face is seen on the TV.

Contrary to what Nick Griffin says, the BNP and the NF before them, have been under violent attack since day one. For over 30 years.

It's always the jews that pay these 'communist' thugs.

Griffin has had a definite policy of expelling long term nationalists from the BNP.

So these newbies will get what poor Tony Ward got.

Griffin is OK as he has security, but these are to protect him from fellow nationalists.

Really... hope this just isnt talk, Hall definitely deserves a taste of his own medicine, it would be interesting to see how he likes it if people follow his example of attacking people when they are heavily outnumbered.

He can give it but can he take it.

Hall a very deserving case of some very special attention

It was a paki who attacked Tony Ward with a claw hammer. Spoke to Tony who is a brave man.

But the next time the bnp run in without checking things out, please wait for me.

Two Special Branch Grasses in Liverpool bnp have been running riot and getting the party bad publicity. The first stage of this was planned for Liverpool on the 14 March. Thankfully, Griffin listened to me and cancelled the planned demo for that day. However, one of the snitches was causing trouble at Leigh, yesterday. Don’t you think its odd how Liverpool bnp are always at the forefront of trouble and arrest? The main grass is Peter Molloy. Griffin has been told about this but seems indifferent to act.

Do we have the name and address of the suspect that was arrested yet? When its known can we ensure it is widely made available to nsure all political persuasions can take measure to protect themselves from this violent, fascist thug - after all it may not just be the BNP that is the only party he disagrees with.

Could be anyone next time, lets hope he gets locked up for a very long time if found guilty to preserve and protect the British democratic process from violent extremism

Have a feeling you are 100% right. There will be plenty of threats and bluster but no action. In the short term that may be a good thing as no one would want to damage the case,if one is brought, against the bloke in custody for the hammer attack.

But in the long run Nationalists dont really want to be seen as toothless tigers, do they?

Don't let the Labour thugs win!
The British National Party is more than just a political party. The BNP is a movement with a cause and as such our members constitute an extended family. We must stand united!

It is imperative that when our members suffer misfortune we all bind together and help in any way possible.

Peter Tierney is a well known BNP activist from Liverpool. He gives his heart and soul to the Party and asks for nothing in return. He is a good, decent, solid and honest British Nationalist.

Last week Marxist thugs trashed his Land Rover, better known locally as the "Liverpool Truth Truck" for the famous a-frame he tows everywhere he goes. We must get the Liverpool Truth Truck repaired and back on the road!

Help give the Marxist vermin who carried out this despicable crime a slap in the face by donating to the Liverpool Truth Truck restoration fund (click here). With your help we will get the Liverpool Truth Truck repaired and back on the road campaigning for the forthcoming European Election.

Many thanks

Nick Griffin
Chairman, BNP


Strange, griffin never offered to repair my car after the Le Pen meeting, 2004? But then my car is not being used to put him Brussels, is it?

Peter Tierney and Peter Molloy are both working for Special Branch. Molloy tried to get bnp into city centre for riot planned for 14 March. He also fucked up F4J in Liverpool. However, Tierney still causing trouble. In fact, all the trouble coming bnp way is from Liverpool? I believe Robin Evan's is to. He's got demos planned for Blackburn Police stations, April 29. His arrest, like Liverpool 13, is a sprat to catch a mackerel. What I mean is, the arrests were to give Evans and others street credibility and trust. Like with Liverpool, he wants’ to drag bnp onto streets and cause trouble.

The same tactics were used to bring Griffin in from the cold. The Rune trial gave him some credibility. Before that he was skint and ripping off old nationalists while stacking supermarket shelves. Him and Darby should be hung.

Yes, your right. The Rune and the Mindbenders were to win over support before he challenged JT. And all the daffties in the bnp fell for it. However, griffin is not MI5.

Last week Socialist Resistance printed an appeal for an anti-BNP mobilisation in Leigh, and a report celebrating a successful counter-mobilisation. Steve Hall, author of both articles, has written this response to Andy Newman’s article “Squadism - A Serious Mistake in Leigh” on the Socialist Unity web site.

I think Andy is right to question the wisdom of certain actions taken in Leigh by local anti-fascists on Friday 13th (and in its run-up) based on reports of the event, and especially the one made by me, which is referred to in his article, which is somewhat sensationalised.

In retrospect, I think I would have penned it somewhat differently now, but there’s no advocacy of “squadism” in it!

I actually only got wind of that Nick Griffin was coming to speak in Leigh less than 48 hours before the event was about to take place.

In the thirty odd years I’ve been politically active in the town, including as Trades Council President back in the 90’s, we’ve never had someone so high up in the Nazi hierarchy openly pay us a visit, and my immediate response to being told about it (which was around 10.00pm in the evening) was that it wasn’t going to start now. I consequently issued an immediate appeal for the largest possible mobilisation to stop the thing from happening and to “help… kick Nick Griffin and his Nazi scum bag mates out of our town.”

The UAF I would assume issued an appeal of their own as did the SWP.

I e-mailed a large number of people on the Left using this wording believing a mass mobilisation to do precisely that, is what was called for, and ultimately the balance of forces on the day would be the determining factor in relation to whether that could be achieved or not, (Sorry if that’s the wrong line these days. I’ve been out of it for a few years! When did we drop “No platform for Fascists then?”)

I did however revise this wording altogether (which I recognised might be potentially misconstrued) from my the subsequent press release to the North West media and other contacts with a call “….to mobilise to oppose this event taking place, and to tell Nick Griffin and his nazi scum-bag mates to stay out of the town.”

My original wording was however picked up, having been posted on the Labournet site, and according to the BNP constituted a call to arms” and an “incitement to violence” and makes me responsible for the whole thing. As a consequence they are also calling for me to be charged by the Police.

So yes, I could have more thoughtfully phrased my earlier e-mail appeal. But it was hardly a call to arms was it? and of course “kicking Nick Griffin out of town” not actually meant literally.

I know I didn’t go personally ‘armed’ to the thing, unlike the four BNP members in the Landrover did according to several reliable eye witnesses, witnesses who would have been severely injured themselves other than for the intervention of a larger group of anti-fascists who prevented that from happening.

I described this group as AFA, but I’ve subsequently been told they were disbanded in 2001, so I’ve really no idea who they were.

I also said they were tooled up, but I didn’t actually see any of them personally, as I only arrived at the scene a few minutes afterwards. My report was based on the accounts of several eye witnesses who were pretty hyped up after experiencing the entire event close up. What occurred being reminiscent in my mind of the type of thing AFA might have done in the past.

It’s also possible that these anti-fascists disarmed the BNP thugs, I don’t know? It all happened very quickly according to all accounts. But I do know the BNP guys came off worst and that their Landrover got a hammering, and their trailer got turned over.

I also know that the students who came from Salford University were pretty happy whoever it was that turned up or they’d have likely been given a good beating along with some of the others assembling to peacefully protest at the time.

I also know that the choice of venue for the anti-fascists to assemble at and which was passed onto and advertised by me, - the Ellesmere Pub on St. Helens Road, was infiltrated with BNP supporters before most of the anti-fascists arrived, and indeed the initial confrontation started in the pub before moving onto the street, at which point the BNP Landrover and trailer turned up and one of the guys in it started to video what was going on. I also know there was no police presence there at this time either.

Needless to say the arrival of the BNP Landrover and trailer at that point incited the crowd assembled, which was growing by the minute.

It is precisely then that several eye witnesses say that three others got out of the Landrover, one armed with a crowbar, one with a baseball bat and another with an extended truncheon.

All the other stuff, which others say we should be doing rather than physically confronting the BNP, proceeded after the incident, with UAF and other anti-fascists taking to locals, many of whom perhaps initially sympathetic to the BNP actually jeered them as their Landrover and trailer was towed away.

In reality my own expectation at the beginning, was that the thing would be called off beforehand, either via direct Police pressure on the landlord or a combination of that and the BNP being faced with the prospect of facing a large counter-demonstration which would draw attention to their small base of support in the area, and deter many of them from attending.

Indeed I found out from Searchlight that it had in fact been formally cancelled about an hour beforehand. So like others have commented the desired objective was achieved none the less.

Finally, that a few of BNP members/supporters self-evidently were prepared to ‘mix it’ with anti-fascist protestors close to their allegedly cancelled BNP “Battle for Britain Roadshow” venue came as something of a surprise to me, since that’s not supposed (as others have stated) to be their line any more either. However, I am happy they were seen off by those already assembled and assembling (notwithstanding of course the unfortunate injury to the BNP guy).

Plus we can’t be held responsible for how the BBC reported the thing, a report which failed to mention a single account from an anti-fascist eyewitness concerning the weapons carried by the BNPers.

Anyway, since then, as alleged instigator of the violence on the night according to some in the BNP, my name and former address (at which my wife and 8 year old daughter still live at) has been posted on a number of neo-Nazi web sites prompting the Police to take a number of measures to protect them against possible reprisals directed at me.

Interestingly enough, and this is for the guy who asked where the Left is in Leigh, the BNP got my old address from the election leaflets I put out as a Respect member in neighbouring Atherton (on the Greater Manchester Respect web site) last May (along with my photograph) in which I got 222 votes (6.7% of the vote).

If there were any mistakes made in Leigh, which of course there were, then I bear the consequences of most of them already, but there is no advocacy of squadism by me as represented by Andy.

I tend to believe mass mobilisations are the right tack and not individual heroism or special operations by small squads of activists, but agree with others who have talked about the need for workers defence groups to defend our meetings and demonstrations from potential attacks such as this one. The key thing of course is accountability, which of course they would need to be to the local trades union and labour movement.

I still think what happened in Leigh was a victory for our side, and “BNP member hammered in Leigh” a lot less worse a headline than “Anti-fascists battered in Leigh”
