THE WAY THINGS ARE GOING IN ENGLAND ... ALL THE WHILE THE WHOLE ENGLISH ANTI-FACISTS & LEFT REMAIN PATHETIC TO THE CHALLENGES THAT FACE US
Nine arrested after masked mob's march
against Muslim extremists turns violent
25th May 2009
Nine people have been arrested after hundreds of
anti-Islamist protesters clashed with police yesterday.
The streets of Luton descended into violence after
demonstrators, many hiding their faces behind balaclavas,
brandished England flags and chanted at officers.
A group called March for England was said to have organised
the rally as a peaceful protest against Muslim extremists.
They were joined by a local group United People of Luton.
Demonstrators gathered in George Square in Luton town
Two of those arrested have been charged: one man for
possessing an offensive weapon after stones were found in
his pockets, and a woman was charged with breaching an
anti-social behaviour order.
Another man was fined £80 for a public order offence.
The other six people, all men, have been bailed without
charge pending further inquiries.
During the protest, the mob, which included teenagers and
women, held banners with slogans such as 'No Sharia Law in
the UK' and 'Respect our Troops'.
Some protesters wore masks with the horned face of Sayful
Islam, a local hardline political agitator who led Muslim
demonstrators in an anti-war protest during the Royal
Anglian Regiment's homecoming parade in Luton in March.
But chaos broke out when a crowd of around 500 ran away
from police who had been escorting the protest along its
route, and ran down side streets towards the town centre.
Officers on horseback and police dogs were deployed, and
policemen drew batons to defend themselves. Masked: A

Groups of young men in balaclavas and England shirts
chanted outside the city centre and one balacava-clad
protester held a Rottweiler on a chain, while others
clashed with police in riot gear.
One Asian man was hit across the face with a banner and
left with a bloody nose.
Police said during the disturbance three car windscreens
were smashed and a window at a take away restaurant in
Chapel Street had been broken.
Last night Luton town centre was calm as police maintained
a presence on the streets.
A spokesman for United People of Luton, Wayne King, said
many people in Luton were concerned and annoyed that the
Muslim community in the town had not taken steps to deal
with Sayful Islam's 'hate-filled preachings'.
The 24-year-old, who wore a T-shirt with the words 'No
surrender to Al-Qaeda' on it, said: 'We decided enough was
enough after the soldiers got heckled as they marched
through the town centre by the Muslim extremists.
'Our community has been racially attacked for the last 10
'A mosque in the town got set on fire a few weeks ago and
it made national news but churches in Luton are regularly
being set fire to.
'We want laws brought in to stop preachers of hate
Luton town centre was busy at the time of the riot with
shoppers enjoying the sunshine.
Many of those who joined in the march had been drinking in
town centre pubs.
Later on, overhead, a police helicopter monitored the
movement of the mob which at one point appeared to be
making in the direction of Bury Park, an area of Luton
where many of the town's Asian population live.

Good for you. It is about time people fought back against these Muslim extremists, who should not be allowed to stay in this country expounding their hatred.

this is what the government has brought this country to when they dont listen, our troops didnt deserve the preachers reaction, if anyone should have been hit with a baton it was sayful, common sense doesnt seem to prevail anymore and has brought this country to its knees.

This is only the start, it had to happen. Brit's stand so much and no more, when we say no more, proceed at your peril.

Good to see someone finally standing up for England. A shame it had to end in violence, it that because the English, due to Politcal Correctness, are the only ones who are not allowed to protest for what they beleive in though??

I believe this is only the beginning of such protests. The Brits have been pushed to the limit by the inequal 'equality' laws created by Labour. The government should know they can only push people so far before they fight back.
