UK Againt Hate March: The other side of the story

The BBC and other MSM outlets described what happened at the UK against Hate March in Manchester, through what can only be described as a biased filter. Some have described the BBC’s articles about the march as Fake News. For the other side of the story we need to read new Media articles written by people who actually took part in the march like this one…

…The following is an honest account from the things we witnessed during the day (you won’t find anything like this on mainstream media)…

…For anyone in a professional job however, like we are, it would have been unthinkable to actually join one of these marches for fear of being captured on camera and being plastered over websites and newspapers under the caption “far right protestors”. It could cost jobs and livelihoods.

But the recent events in Manchester and then London (twice), coupled with Tommy’s insistence that a new mass movement without the thuggish element was desperately needed, was a game changer for us and many others. When you see innocent women and children blown to smithereens at a pop concert and our politicians and authorities do absolutely nothing apart from arresting anyone with the audacity to question Islamic hatred, the time for merely writing stuff online has passed.

And so, full of trepidation, we took the plunge and marched against the establishment’s tolerance for this hateful ideology. What we witnessed reaffirmed some of our suspicions but changed many preconceptions for good.

It is always hard to put a number on these events but we estimate that between 4 and 5,000 people turned out in England’s third city. You won’t be surprised when we say the majority were white males but you might be slightly more surprised when we say also in attendance were plenty of women, fathers with their young children, teenage daughters, a handful of Asian men, a Muslim woman with a placard denouncing Sharia Law, black people, gay and lesbians, and those of mixed race. There were LGBT flags, pro-feminism placards, American, English, Scottish and Welsh flags, a banner declaring “Ex-Muslims United” and others which criticised weak MPs.Screenshot_2017-06-11-20-12-51~2

Once the march reached Piccadilly Gardens and the speeches begun, Tommy shared his platform with a black pastor, Pakistani Christian, an ex-Muslim, a homosexual, and a true feminist. This was a line-up more inclusive than our very own House of Commons – yet the BBC, Daily Mail, Daily Mirror and others were quick to brand it an “EDL march” or “far right demonstration”. Either the far-right is really broadening its appeal these days, or these are outright lies being spread to the masses. We’ll leave you to decide which is the more likely.

Regrettably, there was a small minority who did seem happy to engage in thuggish behaviour. But we estimate that from a 5,000 large crowd, these people numbered maybe 100 or 200. And it’s a great shame that these people do still emerge because they do our cause, and Tommy’s cause, far more harm than good. They play into the hands of the establishment. Yet from the moment we joined up with the march at its starting point, it was the fascist left (laughably described as ‘anti-racist’ by the media) who seemed intent on causing trouble.

First they blockaded the first part of our route before a small number then tried attacking the march down a side road by the Chez Mal Brasserie & Bar. Then, in Piccadilly Gardens, a group of 100 or so took great pleasure in labelling everyone in attendance as “Nazi scum” … before provoking people in the main march and letting smoke bombs off. And it’s frustrating that some on our side responded by throwing missiles in retaliation – yet being there on the day you can sense the palpable anger felt by people.

These are people smeared by everyone in society for having very fair and genuine concerns and yet listened to by no-one. And when they do take to the streets, the police seem intent on encouraging flashpoints for violence. Indeed Tommy can be seen on a Periscope video just hours before the march practically pleading with officers to keep the two demonstrations apart – requests, of course, which fell on deaf ears.

Despite this the vast majority of the march passed off peacefully and without incident…
