Hundreds of members of the Luton Sikh community are protesting outside local police station amid claims police were failing to properly investigate a sex attack on a young woman.

Police said they were negotiating with the protesters staging the “sit down” protest outside the Buxton Road police station.

It comes after a young Sikh woman, who has not been identified, was reportedly beaten and sexually assaulted in the Bedfordshire town by a “Muslim man”.

On Wednesday night, Bedfordshire Police confirmed they were “in talks” with the protesters to try and “resolve the situation” amid fears of rising tensions.

Reports suggested that more than 300 locals were involved in the protest because of “lack of action” from police over Monday’s attack.

There were reports that members of the English Defence League were also among the crowd.


EDL April 17th Demonstration – Home Office, London

Posted in English Defence League, islam UK with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 7, 2012 by britishloyalist

Since the birth of the EDL,‭ ‬the Islamist threat‭ ‬has‭ ‬not only remained,‭ ‬but continues to grow,‭ ‬despite public awareness about the‭ ‬continuously‭ ‬growing‭ ‬threat.‭ ‬There is one threat‭ ‬of‭ ‬which everyone‭ ‬is aware,‭ ‬from the‭ ‬Prime‭ ‬Minister,‭ ‬through the‭ ‬intelligence services,‭ ‬down to the man in the street.‭ ‬That threat comes in the form of Abu Qatada.‭

Even the British criminal justice system understands the threat this man poses to‭ ‬UK security and national interest.‭ ‬They recommended that he be deported back‭ ‬to his homeland.‭ ‬Yet the British government,‭ ‬despite‭ ‬claiming to be willing to do so,‭ ‬have caved in to demands from the European Court of Human Rights that he be kept in Britain because there is‭ ‬‘a risk‭’‬ that he may be convicted in Jordan of terrorist crimes.‭ ‬The‭ ‬problem appears that some of the evidence may have been obtained under torture.‭ ‬On this basis his deportation is to be denied.‭ ‬Yet he is still a threat to us,‭ ‬and he is not even a citizen of our country‭ ‬— and he is still here in the‭ ‬UK living in the lap of‭ ‬luxury at our expense.

On‭ ‬April‭ ‬17th a‭ ‬demonstration has been called to protest at government inaction,‭ ‬to protest at their lack of political will in the face of a known threat to this country and its people.‭ ‬We encourage all‭ ‬of‭ ‬you to be there‭ ‬to make your voices heard.‭ ‬This government must act in the best interests of the country and its people,‭ ‬and not those of unelected officials in a foreign country.‭ ‬We cannot be told who we can and cannot have in our country by people who themselves refuse to have such people as Abu Qatada in theirs.

Who is Abu Qatada‭?‬ He is a Palestinian Islamist terrorist with proven links to many terrorist organisations,‭ ‬including Al Qaeda.‭ ‬He was born in‭ ‬Bethlehem in‭ ‬1960‭ ‬when the‭ ‬West Bank was occupied by the Jordanians‭;‬ hence his Jordanian citizenship.‭ ‬He has been a facilitator of terrorism in various countries,‭ ‬many of which tried to warn‭ ‬Britain of his activities in the‭ ‬1990s,‭ ‬but‭ ‬were ignored.‭ ‬He is regarded by MI5‭ ‬and the Judiciary as a danger to the‭ ‬UK.‭ ‬Mr.‭ ‬Justice Collins,‭ ‬who headed up the special appeals committee,‭ ‬said that Abu Qatada was‭ ‬“heavily involved,‭ ‬indeed was at the centre in the‭ ‬United Kingdom of terrorist activities associated with al-Qaeda.‭ ‬He is a truly dangerous individual‭ ‬…‭”‬.

Even the UN Security Council has imposed a world-wide embargo on him for his affiliation with and activities for Al-Qaeda.‭ ‬Although he has not committed any terrorist crime in the‭ ‬UK,‭ ‬he is linked with the‭ ‬7/7‭ ‬bombers,‭ ‬the‭ ‬9/11‭ ‬attackers and many others around the world.‭ ‬His sermons quite clearly show his hatred for the‭ ‬West and all non-Muslims.‭

The question we have to ask our government is:‭ ‬Why has this horrible,‭ ‬detestable little man,‭ ‬who claims asylum here on the basis of religious persecution,‭ ‬not been deported‭?

It is estimated that his detention since‭ ‬2004‭ ‬has cost the taxpayer over‭ ‬£500,000.‭ ‬They cannot point to the rulings of the European Court of Human Rights,‭ ‬when other countries are deporting their own terror suspects from out of their countries on the basis of national security.‭ ‬Abu Qatada must be thrown out of the country.‭ ‬He has made his bed‭;‬ he must lie on it.‭ ‬He cannot claim religious persecution when he himself has been persecuting non-Muslims around the world and encouraging others to do the same.‭ ‬He is one individual,‭ ‬and‭ ‬he had a choice.‭ ‬He could simply have followed his religion,‭ ‬worshipped Allah in‭ ‬Bethlehem and no one would have heard of Abu Qatada.‭ ‬Instead this evil,‭ ‬hate-filled monster decided to inflict his version of spiritual and political truth on innocent men and women around the world.‭ ‬He should not be allowed to do so from‭ ‬Britain or to do so within‭ ‬Britain.

We need everyone outside of the Home Office on the‭ ‬17th of‭ ‬April to‭ ‬make the British people‭’‬s voice heard by this cowardly,‭ ‬spineless government.‭ ‬Theresa May and David Cameron:‭ ‬if Nicolas Sarkozy can find the proverbials to kick out known terror suspects from‭ ‬France,‭ ‬why can‭’‬t we‭?‬ Why must we continue to endure the hate-filled rantings of this man‭?‬

Remember April‭ ‬17th outside the Home Office.‭ ‬Be there and make a difference‭!

No Surrender‭!

The demonstration, which began with a moment of silence for the seven people who were killed by an al-Qaeda-inspired gunman in France, was held in Aarhus, Denmark’s second largest city.
The Danish Defence League – an anti Muslim movement has organised the ‘European Counter-Jihad Meeting’.
The aim of the meeting was to set up a Continent-wide alliance of anti-Islamic organisations.
Many demonstrators covered their faces with scarves while others bought placards and posters.
Among the speakers was Tommy Robinson, the head of the English Defence League and has inspired offshoots in a number of European countries.
The defence leagues and other counter-jihadist groups that have sprung up in Europe in recent years to distance themselves from neo-Nazis and say they don’t accept racism or anti-Semitism.

English Defence League tries to rally European far right

Anti-fascists plan counter demonstrations against EDL meeting in Denmark at which hundreds are expected to attend

Far right and anti-Islamic groups are due to hold a rally in Denmark on 31 March organised by the English Defence League (EDL) which it claims will be the start of a pan-European movement.

The rally will take place a few weeks before the start of the trial of Anders Behring Breivik, the far right extremist who has confessed to the murder of 77 people in Norway last July, and is expected to attract supporters of at least 10 anti-Islamic and far right groups from across the continent.

It is the second time the EDL has tried to hold a meeting in Europe. In October 2010 about 60 supporters turned up to a planned rally in Amsterdam and were attacked by Ajax football fans and anti-fascists.

The EDL claims the 31 March event will be bigger. It is expected to attract several hundred people drawn from defence leagues and other far right groups that have emerged around Europe over the past two years.

Observers are divided over whether the event is a significant step towards a coherent European far right movement but the possibility has raised concern.

Nick Lowles from Hope not Hate, which campaigns against racism and fascism, said he was not expecting a big turnout but added some key figures from emerging far right groups would be there.

“The march in Denmark will bring together many of the leaders of the so-called ‘counter-jihad movement’ and it is another sign of the growing international anti-Muslim networks,” he said.

The EDL says the Denmark rally will discuss the formation of a European Defence League with representatives from far right and anti-Islamic groups in Italy, Poland, Germany, Finland, Sweden and Norway expected to attend.

Lowles said: “Their focus on the threat of Islam, presenting it as a cultural war, has a far wider resonance amongst voters, especially in northern Europe, than old-style racists. They conflate Islamist extremists with immigration and in the current economic and political conditions it is extremely dangerous.”

Claude Moraes, the Labour MEP for London who chairs the all-party group on racism in the European parliament, described the demonstration as a critical moment and said there was widespread complacency about the threat posed by groups such as the EDL among mainstream European politicians.

“They have missed what is a fundamental change in the way the far right is working. Despite all the evidence of the growing influence and importance of these proxy groups there is still a real complacency about how they are operating, how deeply embedded they are becoming and how they are shaping the debate,” Moraes said.

Last year, a report from the thinktank Demos found a new generation of young, web-based supporters who embrace hardline nationalist and anti-immigrant groups. It concluded that far right and anti-Islamic groups were on the rise across Europe. The exception appeared to be the UK where the British National party failed to make any breakthrough last year in parliamentary and local elections.

In a separate report, Matthew Goodwin from Nottingham University and Jocelyn Evans of Salford University found that a hardcore of far right supporters in the UK appears to believe violent conflict between different ethnic, racial and religious groups is inevitable, and that it is legitimate to prepare even for armed conflict.

Breivik claimed he had contact with the EDL ahead of the attacks, adding that he had “spoken with tens of EDL members and leaders”. In response to the killings, the league issued a statement condemning the Norway killings and adding that it had no contact with Breivik.

The EDL, which emerged from Luton in 2009 to become the most significant far right street movement in the UK since the National Front, claims to be a peaceful, non-racist and set up to protest against “militant Islam”. Many of its demonstrations have descended into violence and Islamophobic and racist chanting, attracting known football hooligans and far right extremists.

In the last year it has staged demonstrations in communities with large Muslim populations including Bradford, Leicester and Tower Hamlets in London. However, it has been hit by divisions and internal rows and some of its supporters have been involved in smaller, but often more violent activities, such as targeting trade union meetings and anti-racist groups.

A big turnout of anti-facists from Denmark and other European countries is expected in protest at the rally in Denmark.

Projekt Antifa, a Danish coalition of anti-fascist groups, has booked coaches to take protesters from Copenhagen to Aarhus where the demonstration is being held, describing it as “the capital’s biggest anti-fascist mobilisation for more than 10 years.” British anti-racists are also planning to travel to the rally. Weyman Bennett from Unite Against Fascism said he would be travelling to the event with 30 supporters.
