edl in cardiff retreat n RWB fest cancelled!

05-06-2010 20:22

account of wdl/edl demo in cardiff today and BNP festival cancelled!
we did a god job of disrupting wdl/edl demo. unfortunately several people were arrested, including 2 people who were taking most of photos for indy/fit watch.

coppers from across the country were out in force with dogs, horses and a chopper. there was the UAF demo of about 350 people, an autonomous bloc of about 30 and then the edl that reached about 50 at its peak.

the edl were bussed in from the station by the filth who then surrounded them.

they errected a wall of sheet metal to separate anti-fasc and edl. the uaf did a tame demo round the corner, but once the edl demo started proper people challenged the filth and gave chase... the police were then forced to do a running kettle of the edl to stop angry antiifasc from attacking. the edl were forced to retreat after we continued to follow them and the police escorted them out of town.

it was a pleasure to participate in quite a random but diverse group! and feel the rage despite the heavy police presence!

big love to comrades still in the nick.
