n158100673713_6073This October, in a bid to stir up racial tension and increase religious intolerance, a group calling itself the ‘English Defence League‘ (EDL) intend to hold two protests in south Wales with a “march against muslim extremists” in Swansea on Saturday 17th October and an ‘anti-mosque demo’ in Newport on Saturday 24th October.

It seems that the EDL, which has close links with the British National Party (BNP), have reached out to the fantasist Jeff Marsh of Barry who has cultivated a shady reputation through authoring a number of Cardiff City Soul Crew football hooligan books.

calais-orange2With the Calais No Border Camp less than a week away, to go along with the activist mobilisation, the mainstream media disinformation is in full swing. Whilst most of the scare stories have appeared in the French press, never one to miss a spot of sensationalism the Daily Mail has run a story about the camp. Amoung other things Mail hack Peter Allen claims that we “heartily support” the views of Natacha Bouchart, the mayor of Calais, who has called on residents of Calais to leave en-masse for the duration of the camp and has cancelled several local events for no good reason. Unsurprisingly our views and that of Ms Bouchart are drastically different and the idea we intend to incite migrants to er… migrate is laughable.
