Was it worth it?

As the dust settles on another election, the startling success of the BNP in Aberdeen can be clearly shown. Roy Jones managed to attain 635 votes in Aberdeen North, which was good enough for 2nd last. In Aberdeen South, where Susan Ross had put in such a lot of effort, she polled a remarkable… 529 votes. Oh dear. and that’s after all the resources and time that was diverted to Aberdeen after their Glasgow branch fell apart.

Ah well… maybe next time.

Aberdeen hates fascists.


Local BNP activists = A great bunch!

The reporting of the Aberdeen Anarchists on the recent spate of ‘unpopularity’ that has affected the BNPs election campaign in Aberdeen has got under the skin of their core membership of moronic xenophobes.

Previously we have been deleting the various insults which disgruntled BNP activists have sent our way, as we know you don’t want to wade through the sheer amount of ill-informed garbage that a dedicated few have been sending us.

However, in the interests of free speech and further ridicule here is a selection of the most ridiculous, taken completely out of context.

“typical commie filth, twisting the truth or telling outright blatant lies” – Starts off on a nice note.

“crap website” – That possibly has some merit 😉

“extreemist lefties” – Reeeaaalllyy extreeeeme!


“God bless Nick Griffin and of course all at the BNP” – A bit disturbing

“piece of scum”

“manky leftie pieces of shit”

“Well done Barry and the Crew for taking on the Aberdeen scumbags” – Advocating violence against activists…. shocking!

“God Bless our beloved leader, Nick” – “[Hitler] was sent to us by God to save Germany” (Hermann Goering) hmm…

“Our University Lecturer, Darth Vadar, is our leader.” – This one is just confusing, nonsensical ramblings.

“brainwashed vermin” – glass houses eh?

“Nick Griffin, he is one very funny, quick witted, shagable bloke.” – no comment

“a lefite retard” – nicely offensive

“Personally, I have always fancied Zac Goldsmith. Anyhow, God Bless Nick Griffin.” – disturbing.

“Go on…. be a devil, allow a non conformist comment on…. God Bless Nick Griffin.” – done.

Just to underline the BNP’s commitment to free speech, here is a screengrab of the Scottish BNP blog comments page on a piece about the billboard.

Aberdeen BNP’s New Billboard

The idiots from the BNP have failed to take the hint to fuck off out of Aberdeen. They have had another BNP billboard put up mere metres from the site of the last one. No prizes for guessing what happened.

Antifascists have already taken up the challenge and attacked it, leaving no doubt (if there ever was any?) about what Aberdeen thinks of hatred and fascist ideology.

Fascists are not welcome in Aberdeen!

BNP Billboard in Aberdeen

Anti-fascists have attacked and defaced the BNP’s billboard on the Great Northern Road outside the Northern Hotel. The billboard has already been replaced once due to the actions of local residents appalled by the BNP’s message of minority intimidation and intolerance. The BNP have now put ‘security’ in place to protect the billboard against the actions of Aberdeen’s antifascists.

These security are nothing more than ‘old school’ party members who are not averse to the street violence that characterised the party in the 90s, from which today the party tries to distance itself .  Aberdeen Anarchists activists experienced this violence first hand, and can advise anybody who carries out direct action in this way to be wary of a metallic blue car (possibly a ford focus), sitting in front of the Northern Hotel.

One of the men who has been providing security for the billboard is Aberdeen BNP party organiser and part time street thug Barry Scott, pictured below.

Finally, we would like to salute anybody who fights fascism and racist intolerance in their community by any means necessary.

SDL March in Glasgow

The protests in Glasgow against the Scottish Defence League can broadly be called a success. Anti-fascists were certainly successful in preventing the group from assembling in any significant way on the street, and the number of people who came out to fight the fascists was extremely impressive. However, as was the case in Leeds where a comrade was handed over to the police by a steward, the actions of the self-appointed leaders of the anti-racist movement – Unite Against Fascism (UAF) – were disgraceful.

Anti-fascists met outside the St. Enoch Street subway station in significant numbers with the intention of going to Cambridge street, where the majority of the SDL were drinking in a bar behind a sizeable police line. We set off through the streets towards their hideout as a loose group, but soon the UAF banner was at the front of the march and Weyman Bennett was stopping for photo opportunities, and commandeering a megaphone to tell the group to slow down to accommodate the cops! Despite this, those who were interested in actually opposing the SDL on the streets walked on towards the bar.

Having got to Cambridge street, Bennett and his supporters once again took control of the megaphone and began telling protesters to head to the ‘Scotland United’ demonstration at Glasgow Green! This created a split in the group leaving only 50 behind to oppose the SDL where they were, with the majority following the UAF banner away from any confrontation and towards the official protest. This not only left those who stayed in danger, but also allowed the SDL briefly outside the bar.

The actions of the UAF group on Saturday were despicable, but not unexpected. Their history of state collusion against radical anti-fascists and collaboration with religious groups, political parties and the forces of the state is no secret. It is becoming increasingly clear that they cannot be trusted as a genuine anti-fascist group, and are not an effective means of combating fascism in Britain.
