The UAF's planned weekend of violence

The government backed group "Unite Against Fascism" or "UAF" have been planning to violently disrupt the British National Party's annual family friendly members fete,the "Red White and Blue", for the past few months. The UAF have been busy recruiting thugs from all over the UK with the sole purpose of causing misery and disruption to the people (including women, children and babies) attending the fete.
I write this article as testament to this fact, in the event that the UAF try to erase all evidence of it from their website:

We condemn the BNP’s festival of race hate

UPDATE From the Independent: BNP festival 'rallying point for neo-Nazis'

The fascist British National Party plans to hold its annual "Red, White & Blue" rally in Derbyshire on 14-16 August. The BNP bills this event as a "patriotic family festival". The truth is very different. The event will be a rallying point for neo-Nazis and racists from across Europe.

Last year guests invited to the "Red, White & Blue" by the BNP included Petra Edelmannova, a Czech neo-Nazi who calls for a "final solution to the Gypsy issue". The BNP's deputy leader Simon Darby defended this rhetoric, saying "What's wrong with people who talk frankly about their problems?".

Other guests included Marc Abramsson, a Swedish fascist who campaigns for "racially pure kindergartens". This year's guests are likely to include representatives of Jobbik, a violently racist Hungarian party that organises pogroms against Roma people.

The purpose of the BNP's event is to build up a hardened neo-Nazi core at centre of the organisation. Student BNP members have been ordered to attend a lecture on "ethno-nationalist theory" during the rally. Previous "Red, White & Blue" rallies have involved SS marching music as "entertainment". BNP leader Nick Griffin is a Holocaust denier with a criminal conviction for incitement to racial hatred.

We are already witnessing a spate of racist attacks in areas of high BNP activity. The BNP's "Red, White & Blue" will only to encourage more bigotry and violence on our streets. We condemn the BNP and its festival of race hate, and we urge people to reject this party's poisonous and anti-democratic agenda.

Kettle the Nazi BNP in Codnor this Saturday

UPDATED Download list of coaches to Codnor here

This week sees the final push by anti-fascists for a mass protest against the BNP's annual rally in the village of Codnor, Derbyshire, on Saturday 15 August.

Unite Against Fascism has organised coaches from across the country to bring anti- Nazis to Codnor at 9am and "kettle" the BNP rally by surrounding it with protesters.

The BNP pretends that its rally is a "family friendly festival". In fact it serves to indoctrinate BNP supporters in the party's Nazi ideology and forge links between the organisation and other fascist groups in Europe.

This year the rally will include a "speech by a senior party official on the subject of Ethno Nationalist Theory" that all student BNP members are required to attend.

The event is also likely to feature "guests" from the BNP's new allies in the European parliament -- such as France's Front National, Belgium's Vlaams Belang and Hungary's openly antisemitic Jobbik party, which has recently been involved in organising violent attacks on Roma gypsies in Hungary.

The actions of this UAF planned violence has resulted in significant costs to police the 'protest':

An un-manned small drone aircraft will be used to video the event and protest.

Police said they expected a number of groups to meet at Codnor Market Place on Saturday morning to protest against the BNP's event and a protest march was due to be held on Saturday morning.

Peace and safety

Senior officers said "a significant policing operation was being put in place over the weekend in the area and local people could face some disruption".

Acting Assistant Chief Constable Steve Cotterill said: "Our main aim for this weekend is that it passes off peacefully and any disruption is kept to a minimum.

"We are expecting a lot of people to come to this part of Derbyshire both to attend the Red, White and Blue event and also to protest against it.

"We are very mindful of the impact that such large number of people coming into a relatively small area can have on the local community and we have been working closely with Amber Valley Borough Council, residents and all the interested parties.

"The people attending Red, White and Blue have a right to do so in peace and safety but we also realise that people have the right to protest in a lawful and peaceful way. Local people also have the right to be able to go about their lives as normal."

It seems the UAF do not care how much their actions cost the taxpayer, they do not care about the people of Codnor, they do not care that the BNP are a legal political party with many democratically elected local councillors, a member of the London Greater Assembly and 2 MEP's, they do not care about the babies and children they will be terrorising over the weekend.

This article is evidence of the preplanned violence orchestrated by the UAF, it seems they are opposed to a democracy that doesnt do as they say.
