(en) Britain, Schnews #718 - LUNARTICS AND ASYLUM

Date Tue, 20 Apr 2010 19:07:51 +0300

A BNP anti-immigration protest outside Lunar House - where asylum seekers sign on - on Thursday (15th) was gate crashed by the anarchist bloc, who managed to land a few punches before being cordoned off and pushed back by the police. ---- Protesters started gathering at around 12.30. Officers of the law had helpfully allocated two sectioned spaces on either side of the building - one for the BNP and the other for the 100 strong amalgamation of socialists, liberals, anarchists and general immigration supporters that had come to stand up against repression of asylum seekers and the tolerance of fascist ideals. ---- As the clock struck 2, a small horde of around 25 British Nationalists crawled past the tunnel entrance next to the Home Office to their allocated kennel.

They carried banners slurred with “Britain is full up” and “Asylum seekers don’t unpack, you’re going back”. They were counteracted by shouts of “Smash the BNP!” and “Nazi scum off our streets!”. The feisty anarchists (15 or so) were the only contingent that voiced any real resistance and ignored police summons to stay in the proposed area. They confronted the fascist minded idiots and managed to give a few a hiding before police rushed in to protect the BNP.

The handful of anarchists were soon surrounded by around 35 riot police, as 8 riot vans descended. The kettled formed and immediately started shoving the protesters behind liberal lines, where the socialists and co had actively been standing by doing nothing. Actually that is a lie, they watched 2 arrests happen. A reckless assault and another for a possession of a legal high. After that police kept the two opposing parties at a safe distances. After an hour of cowardly standing around behind their blue protectors the fascist posse decided to call it a day.
