From Bristol Indymedia:

Yesterday [Saturday July 15, 2012], following the EDL march in Bristol, a sizeable group of EDL supporters were confronted by antifascists outside a pub on Old Market.

Reports that a large number of EDL members had congregated in the Long Bar on Old Market Street were confirmed when a pissed-up group outside began to hurl abuse and insults at random passers-by who they presumed were ‘opposition.’ Beknown to them, there was a crew of around 40 antifascists just around the corner… (more…)

“Report of paintbomb attack on the Railway Bell, Brighton. Fascist hangout…

If you like your beer with a hint of racism you can probably do no better than the Railway Bell…

On March 24th the March for England, a flag waving front for fascist scum, the ENA (English Nationalist Alliance) and EDL (English Defence League), held a march in Brighton

March for England was attended by several divisions of the English Defence League

Their meeting point was the Railway Bell, opposite Brighton Station. The pub opened early to accommodate the fash and served as a reassembly point for marchers after their parade through town.

The Railway Bell has been a popular venue for fascists during previous Brighton marches.

The MfE, ENA and EDL are not welcome and will be resisted

In the early hours of this morning antifascists hurled paintbombs at the Railway Bell before disappearing into the night.”

Exeter Anti-EDL demo report (UK)

Saturday, February 12th, 2011

12 Feb 2011

“Today an attempt by the EDL [English Defence League] to hold a rally in Exeter was thoroughly thwarted by hundreds turning out for a festival of diversity and a celebration of multi-culturalism.

Also, Exeter AFA were in attendance and managed to follow this minority of bigots and thugs from their pathetic excuse of a gathering to their local pub – The Kings, Cowick Street, Exeter. These fascists masked up outside the pub, blatantly to try to attack minority groups and their shops later on. We got many photos of the individual scum concerned and these will be posted and distributed asap.

Love, strength and unity to all resist fascism worldwide. And solidarity to all prisoners of the struggle, especially the hunger strikers in Greece. Shortly a SW [South West] ABC will be active. We’ll keep you posted. ANARCHY and PEAS, the SW naughty massive“.
