Anti-muslim Riots In Luton Yesterday

Nine arrested after masked mob's march against Muslim extremists turns violent

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.

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.

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.

Focus of hate: Sayful Islam used to be a moderate Muslim from Luton

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 years.

'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 operating here.'

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.

Labour worked very hard for over a decade to destroy civil society, this is just one of the consequences of their shitty government, and you know what? After creating this problem they just see the resulting fallout as another problem that needs to be solved with ID cards, CCTV, communications interception and the logging of all car movements.

what scares me in equel measure,is the anger of these disinfranchised yoof (they have been left behind by nulab) ,the government's anti-race /protest /terrorist laws that stifle any measured debate(pressure cooker effect) and the relatively rapid immigration which must feel very unsettling to live with,especially as many of the new arrivals don't seem to wish to intergrate (for reasons partly understand able,but remind me why they came?)

Much of what the BNP says seems good,practical stuff (look at the website,i did),i'm also certain that some of their more extreme views would offend me BUT i find it very scary how nulab stifle debate on immigration because it's "raceist".....there is a lot of pent up anger amongst the working class(god that sounds old-fashioned) males in our country at present .

Immigration done right is no doubt an enriching thing,but theres the rub,done right.

PS i benefited hugely from immigration ,my folks great grand parents came here in 1900's ,i could have been a frog!!!!!!!!! (joking at french is ALWAYS acceptable!!!!!!!)

Who would want to live in that dump anyway, houses have always been cheap and will be getting cheaper. It seems like Islam has been taking the piss is Luton for a long time:

Two British National Party election advertisement billboards in different parts of the country came under threat from mobs of Islamists this afternoon. One billboard was covered up after the mob intimidated the police by threatening to attack.

The first sign of trouble came in the West Midlands where an Islamist mob emerged from a local mosque after Friday prayers - where they had possibly been stirred up during the sermon - and threatened a BNP billboard advertising ‘British jobs for British workers,’ according to BNP press officer Simon Darby.

“The police were called in to protect the billboard, which they did, despite the mob taunting them, threatening Jihad and shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ and other such militant Islamist slogans,” Mr Darby said.

“The outbreak of militancy appears to have been coordinated, because at almost the same time, a BNP advertising billboard in Luton was surrounded by a similar mob. They were also shouting Islamist slogans and carrying items which were clearly intended to be used to set fire to it,” he continued.

“The billboards do not even mention Islam or Islamism, and merely call for British people to be given jobs, so the cause of the Islamist militancy obviously lies elsewhere,” he said.

According to Mr Darby, the local police in Luton then ordered that the billboard be covered up “for public safety.”

“In other words, mobs can threaten violence in the street and instead of being arrested, the police and authorities cower down and submit to whatever these mobs want,” Mr Darby said.

“Forcing the BNP to cover up its billboard underlines the fact that Britain is being colonised by Islam and that this is leading to the suppression of democracy.

“This is what the immigration policies of successive Tory and Labour governments have created: A situation where a violent mob of Islamists can dictate to the public which party they have a right to hear.”

Mr Darby said the BNP was not going to be intimidated into backing down. “We have too much at stake,” he said. “We are the only party which opposes the Islamification of Britain and we will not be put off by threats of violence from these people.

Well if this demonstration was organised by agitators (most likely) then it doesn't augur well.

If it was genuinely spontaneous, then it augurs something much, much worse.

Worrisome. But kind of predictable. Chap who made the comment about NuLab stifling debate causing a pressure cooker effect is right.

Wish people could just be people.

I live with prejudice. It's not a lot of fun to be honest. Nothing violent mind, just silly comments.

Deja vu. I already read this in another of your anti-muslim threads.

These people look like they are just as nasty as the muslim extremists they're protesting about.

That is because they are clearly the far right.

If you get one, you are always going to get the other.

Yes that's what I was thinking. Add to that all the normal folk stuck in the middle of it all paying for it.

However the Muslims were protesting about the war. Not sure which one.
