The last time the morons from the far right visited Bradford, they were protected from anti-fascists by a wall of steel erected by the authorities outside Bradford Interchange. Since their last visit, the Queen public house on Bridge Street has changed owners two times, and has been tarted up with new signage. If that pub once again hosts the EDL, and pumps them full of Stella, antifascists should organise a further boycott of this boozer.
Last time's flashpoint occurred when fascists managed to exit up the upper concourse next to the train station and attack local Asian youths using the Leisure Exchange cinema and bowling alley. There was sadly no police roadblock at the top of the Interchange allowing this to happen. ANTIFA need to be vigilant in defending all such locations from nazi assault. Coked-up, drunken and looking for fights, the Northern divisions of the EDL and their splinters are far more dangerous than their Southern counterparts who have fizzed out recently. Antifascists must not underestimate potential fascist turn-out from smaller turn-outs elsewhere, as Bradford, like Birmingham, is always a primary target for organised racists.
REMEMBER: - Back in 2001, all it took was a small handful of far right extremists to trigger a full-scale riot. Don't be penned into the UAF protest in Centenary Square. Protect Bradford from fascist incursion, and do your bit to ensure the fash leave empty handed.
