English Defence League Coach Attacked in East London

BBC News, September 4, 2011

A coach full of English Defence League supporters was pelted with missiles after it broke down in east London.

The coach was carrying 44 EDL members when it stopped in Mile End Road, Tower Hamlets.

About 100 Asian teenagers then pelted it with bricks and stones, according to a BBC reporter at the scene.

Police arrested all 44 EDL supporters, who were travelling from a protest in Aldgate earlier on Saturday. A double decker bus was used to evacuate them.

Police said there had already been one altercation with local youths after the vehicle stopped in Whitechapel Road and some passengers got off the coach.

They got back on board and the coach pulled away–but it later suffered a failure and ground to a halt.

BBC reporter Paraic O’ Brien, who was on the scene, said nearly 100 local teenagers then attacked it with missiles.

He said the police were on the scene extremely quickly.

‘Extremely tense’

The reporter said within a short space of time there were a number of riot vans and 200 police officers in the vicinity.

O’Brien said: “It was extremely tense and if that number of officers had not arrived it could have gone the other way and become a major incident.”

The police commandeered a London bus and moved the EDL supporters onto it before escorting the bus east.

But a group of youths subsequently sat down in the middle of Mile End Road, blocking the bus and forcing it to stop.

At this point a large number of Asian men began arriving from a nearby estate.

The reporter said by then the situation had become very scary.

The police charged the youths and scuffles broke out.

Another group standing on a footbridge over the road threw bricks at the bus.

Police managed to clear the road and the bus left the area.

The EDL, which says it is protesting against Islamic extremism in the UK, had earlier held a protest in Aldgate after a planned march through east London was banned by the government.

Shafiur Rahman had organised stewards for a rival demonstration earlier in the day.

He said that allowing the bus through Tower Hamlets was a major security error that could have ended in disaster.

Investigation ongoing

Mr Rahman is a member of the Islamic Forum of Europe.

A Met spokeswoman said: “A coach containing individuals believed to have participated in the EDL demonstration stopped in Whitechapel Road–some passengers got off and an altercation took place with some local youths who had gathered.

“Shortly after, the coach broke down outside Stepney Green Underground Station, and a further disturbance took place.

“Officers commandeered a double decker bus before transferring the passengers and escorting them off the borough.”

She added: “All those on the coach were arrested for public order offences and an investigation is ongoing to identify others outside the bus who participated in the disorder.”

Meanwhile the EDL’s second in command, Kevin Carroll, has told the BBC its founder Stephen Lennon will hand himself in to police.

Lennon, who was convicted in July of leading a street brawl with 100 football fans, breached bail conditions by taking part in the demonstration.

On Saturday an EDL regional organiser had claimed Lennon had already been arrested–but this proved to be untrue.

A total of 60 people–including the 44 involved in the bus incident–were arrested in connection with the EDL protest.

Offences included assault on a police officer, common assault, drunk and disorderly behaviour and affray.

Police estimated 1,000 EDL supporters and 1,500 counter-protesters had gathered.


Casuals United, September 5, 2011

We have spoken to the woman that was assaulted and she was in the downstairs toilet on the coach when Muslims/UAF tore the door open. She was punched in the face and thrown on the floor where she was kicked several times, all by men. When she got up and ran after the bus she was surrounded and further assaulted.

She says she was hit or kicked by at least 20 different males. She has a fractured cheekbone, bruised ribs and internal bruising.

The other people on the bus were having the windows caved in on the other side of the bus and were unaware that anyone was off the bus. Once they realised they piled off the bus but it was too late and they have all been arrested although the charges will never stick.

This is the third time an EDL female has been viciously assaulted by the followers of the “religion of peace”, they love attacking women. Respect to the woman in question as she says she will not stop going demos. Good on you girl thats the British spirit right there.

The good news is police say the whole incident is on CCTV and they expect to make several arrests shortly.

    When leftists have demonstrations, the media always reports the ‘bad’ behavior of ‘pinkertons’, security guards, and ignorant bigots, no matter the reality. When those on the right demonstrate, any violence – whether committed by the left or right – is always brought up as a reason demonstrations can’t take place. That could work both ways. We see violence here. It makes just as much sense to conclude violence, committed by the left or tight, is the reason immigrants shouldn’t be in England.

    I’ve commented before that Britain is the prototype of what awaits all White countries down the road, if White people don’t wake up and wake up fast. Britain’s people have become without religion and God. They’ve become moral cowards and their racial identity is close to zero. It’s just a matter of time before there is a Muslim takeover. This is a precursor of events in other countries in Europe. There is an agenda afoot to destroy White people around the world.

  • RJS

    This is a perfect example of what Lenin termed as “useful idiots”.

    I simply do not understand how even the most dimwitted white liberals can protest side by side with all of these non-whites whose main motivation is PURE RACIAL HATRED OF WHITES.

    These “useful idiots” actually think that non-whites will distinguish between the “racist” whites and the “do-gooder” whites when everything collapses…not a chance.

    Just wait until the racial violence becomes more widespread…these “useful idiots” (while begging for their lives) will shriek, “But why do you want to hurt me, I’m on your side!”

    A day before that, the Daily Mail came out with a hit piece against the EDL, supposedly showing some of its supposed members posing with “frightening arsenals of guns.” Which are probably air rifles, because with the UK’s gun control, if they were real guns, and these being “EDL members,” they’d be in prison, and not just for the usual two-year bid a typical British murderer gets.

    A statement from someone who was on the coach.

    Peter Tatchell is a militant “gay rights” campaigner, and proud supporter of the “anti – fascist” UAF.

    ALL White nations are sinking faster and faster and the dumb Whites (so called do-gooders) just sit and watch and make excuses with their never ending sniveling about how we are responsible for all the “racism” in the world and we have to “help” these nonwhites by giving away our nations and our race.

    I hope those dumb Whites are the first to go. But, that is never the case, is it? WE will bear the brunt of their stupidity.

    Let’s watch and see if Theresa May or Nick Lowles of Searchlight come out and publicly condemn the Muslims/UAF violence on a coach of peaceful EDL members or the disgraceful gang up of the UAF on one lone EDL female. And doesn’t the ignorant little fascist laughing about her beating make my blood run cold.

    I’m just being facetious. Of course there’s no way those Marxists May or Lowles would EVER come out and speak the truth about this situation, especially if it meant having to condemn the actions of their precious UAF or any organization made up of BROWN people. That would be going against everything England and the rest of the world are trying to shove down our throats.

    Wouldn’t it be nice if people like them just spontaneously combusted? I can dream.

    The ‘anti facists’ get away with this because the authorities LET THEM. just like the regular threats of violence against Amren members.

    When Nick Griffin first got elected to the EU Parliament – people assaulted him and police across the street did NOTHING. this is coming from up top – from our elite.

    @RJS – exactly – they think minorities will be their best buddies for life.. when they don’t realize is it doesn’t matter if you are right or left, only that you are white.

  • Anonymous

    Sometimes AmRen is off target, mean spirited, wrong-headed, incorrect, misleading or just plain not interesting.

    But it has NEVER advocated or celebrated violence. And that makes it head and shoulders above these Muslims and their apologists.

    How many of these thugs will never even be questioned by the police, in contrast to the years done at Her Majesty’s pleasure by the ‘Heretical Two’ (Simon Sheppard and Stephen Whittle) for the crime of publishing words and pictures on the internet?

    It’s time to start bringing hate incitement charges against all producers of commercials that demean and insult Whites. These thugs watch TV. They see Whites being the butt of slick and expensively made mean jokes. When they get the chance, they join in the bashing – in their way.

    Muslims and their apologists are the Brown Shirts of the liberal establishment. They are given a free hand to stomp on the opponents of the agenda of the government and elites.

    “@RJS – exactly – they think minorities will be their best buddies for life.. when they don’t realize is it doesn’t matter if you are right or left, only that you are white”

    And right again. Same thing is gonna surprise a lot of politicians in the U.S. that pander to the black and other non white voters. As soon as these people have enough vote power they will vote their own into the various offices and those previous panderers will say “but, but I’m on your side!” sorry traitors! (the politicians I mean)The truly sorry thing of these race traitors being voted out of office by their beloved non whites, is that we taxpayers will have to support them and theirs for FN ever in a rather lavish lifestyle!

  • SKIP

    OH! forgot to mention that I notice pains taken in the article to NOT SAY MUSLIMS! or MUSLIM “TEENS” and also calling them “Asian” which would suggest, as usual, Philippine, Vietnamese, Cambodians and such as the culprits and NO WAY will these PC clowns say PAKISTANI since the Pakistani and other muslims will BLOW SH** UP! if they are offended or “outraged”

    TRUE!

    And no real white person will lift a hand as these leftist abominations are gutted alive by the brown horde. Nor will anybody shed a tear.

  • Kenelm Digby

    The fact is that in that part of East London (ie Tower Hamlets, Newham, Hackey etc), there are very, very few White people actually left.For example in Newham it is likely that less than 5% of births are to ethnic Britons.

    Therefore organisations such as the EDL are running a big risk just by being present there.

  • Pat

    No. 4 the British man is Pat Condell – he never minces words! I always watch his videos.

    The constant attacks from all sources on the EDL indicates they are making certain people ‘nervous’.

  • Deirdre

    I think we will see more and more of this type of thing. In the US it’s been happening all over the heartland with random attacks on white people – perhaps under slightly different circumstances but ultimately the same bias in reporting. Whites will simply have to learn to fight back, and unfortunately that will not happen until they are forced to do so. Forced by personal experience, loss, or violence of themselves or a family member. Because warnings are no good, they only draw criticism of “racist” intent. Fortunately white people in general are somewhat familiar with tactics of governing and controlling large majorities of aliens when they are in the minority. Because that will eventually be put to the test, and this time it will be in a fight for our lives. Thanks a lot, Liberal Whites.

    I hate the euphemism “Asian” in Britain, and from London in particular. These were Arabic and Pakistani and Indian Muslim fanatics. They don’t want to defend the English because they aren’t English. They don’t even speak English, and why would they care to defend it when they are taking it over?

    Every last one of these Muslim barbarians went to a White taxpayer provided house, and ate white taxpayer provided food, and had a good laugh about this over dinner with their 14 kids and relatives.

    Did I read this correctly?

    “A coach full of English Defence League supporters was pelted with missiles after it broke down in east London.

    The coach was carrying 44 EDL members when it stopped in Mile End Road, Tower Hamlets.

    About 100 Asian teenagers then pelted it with bricks and stones, according to a BBC reporter at the scene.

    Police arrested all 44 EDL supporters. . . .”

    I think that says it all.

  • Anonymous

    Correct me if I am mistaken, but don’t the vast majority of ‘antifas’ have socialist/communist leanings? Maybe the EDL could identify some prominent antifas for payback?

  • jack in chicago

    In these instances, I am not overly concerned about the nationalists complete ideology or whether some one’s relative has a book about Nazis or the leaders are too pro Israel or anything.

    Any White people in England or anywhere who have the courage to put their bodies at extreme risk to stand up to invading Muslim extremists or the Stalinist PC thought police – I support them 100%.

    God bless these brave folks in the EDL.

    It isn’t difficult to reconcile these two sentences from the article:

    “The EDL, which says it is protesting against Islamic extremism in the UK”

    and

    “About 100 Asian teenagers then pelted it with bricks and stones”.

    Sounds like Islamic extremism to me. Native Brits wouldn’t have done that kind of thing.

    Granted – but very rarely! Mostly, AmRen simply collects whatever little race-related news is out there, and lets it speak volumes, without further comment necessary.

    I think that the subtitle beneath the header speaks volumes when it’s contemplated in direct relation to the point of the story. Basically, the EDL exists because of the type of behavior portrayed by these Asians. Actually Middle Easterners/ North Africans is more accurate.

    Kind of like the two similar stories on two different continents from a couple of years back. The White separatist in S.Africa who was murdered and butchered by a gang of blacks. Regardless of if you agree with the guy or not. In his death you could say he proved his point. Same thing here in the US about another White separatist in one of the Southern states. He was killed by a black guy who he hired to tend to his property. Again he sort of proved his point. Although you could argue that he should not have hired a black guy. Well then the “moral” police would have criticized him for not helping a brotha out. Damned if you do damned if you don’t. That’s why it’s better to go with your first intuition.

    Wrong. “Asian” in the UK means Indian/Pakistani/Bangladeshi. The Asians in this article are Bangladeshi. Asian is never used to refer to Arabs and the UK.
