Demonstrations of rememberance take place all over the UK.

SPLASH-IMAGE-LEE-RIGBY-4011415Following the death of Drummer Lee Rigby several gatherings have taken place to commemorate the life of the fallen soldier; who was brutally murdered at the hands of Muslim terrorists. This weekend saw what Hope not Hate described as “the biggest mobilization of the right in thirty years” Although many gatherings that took place were organized by local communities and supported by supporters from the wider political spectrum.

In London violence marred the BNP’s demonstration with riot police called in to restore orders as violent members of the Unite Against Fascism group attacked BNP supporters. The group had planned to lay wreaths at the cenotaph however a congregation of around 300 UAF supporters lined the streets to block there path.

One BNP supporter was attacked by a group of around twenty five the elderly supporter was trying to make his way through to the BNP demonstration to pay his respects when he was attacked. 58 supporters from the UAF group were later arrested with riot officers with dogs having to restore order.
BNP leader Nick Griffin told his assembled supporters that these attacks “will happen again and again until the West disengages with Islam and they leave our Country”

In Dagenham a small gathering of around 35 patriots passed off peacefully, prayers were said as wreaths were laid and candles lit. The crowd that gathered then proceeded to hold a minutes silence. The event organised by Dagenham EDL leader Diane Scrimshaw faced no opposition and she told the Barking and Dagenham Post following the meet she said “we are just paying our respects”.

Adding “We have been going on about extremism and the way that these people are getting radicalised.”

Similar demonstrations took place elsewhere in the country; on Friday a gathering took place featuring around two hundred patriots in the Leeds area. The event is said to have passed off peacefully despite UAF confronting mourners who wish to pay there respects.

In Brighton, a city known for left wing extremism, EDL members attended the war memorial earlier so to avoid any nasty confrontations and to pay there respects in peace. Where as in Sheffield patriots were stopped from paying there respects after UAF supports congregated at the cenotaph forming human chains and singing songs. Police tried to clear a way through twice so people could pay there respects but where prevented by the UAF supporters.

Reports suggest the UAF out numbered the EDL and they were small scuffles after bottles where thrown at the assembled group of mourners.  Video can be found here

Around a hundred people marched through hemel hempsted in another of the fifty planned memorial events. This event was opposed by the UAF once again but this time they were giving away cakes. No confirmation if they also wore part hats and had balloons but given it was a day of respect for a solider I’m sure many will find there so called party mood here disrespectful.

Essex Police had to use forty officers in riot gear as UAF supporters blocked EDL supporters from paying there respects in Colchester. A police spokesman confirmed there had been minor incidents saying “Two arrests were made for public order offenses but apart from that, there were no major incidents.”

A silent walk with around 100 EDL member headed by deputy leader Kevin Carrol took place in Luton, Carrol read a poem he had wrote about the soldier as the group held a minutes silence and laid wreaths.  Demonstrations held in Peterborough, Leicester, Ipswich and Hartlepool all passed off peacefully as did many others across the country with many more expected to take place today.

The British Citizen Launched

cropped-pc120434web.jpg Welcome to the new news service for British patriots; The British Citizen. This blog was formerly known as Northern Monkey Media and was used to highlight the truth behind the Charlene Downes disappearance.

Now a few months later several things have happened that some patriots are unaware of or have missed due to information either been hard to source or largely unreported by the mainstream press. So I decided earlier this week to re-launch the blog as a kind of news service covering things that will appeal to those of us that lean to the right with our political standing. So a new name was found and a complete redesign and I hope you find the site informative, enlightening and at times entertaining.

The idea been instead of scouring the net every day to look for information and news which is relevant to you. You can now find it all in one place. We hope to list as much information as we can and we’ll do that hopefully with your help. You can send in information via my face book page. We also hope to keep you up to date with all the latest news and events from the many patriotic factions in this country whether they be street movements or political parties.

In time we will add video content and interviews as well as our own investigative journalism however as we are in our infancy we will take the baby steps of compiling reports of the news that matters to you. So please get involved by liking and sharing our page and why not join the debate by adding your own comments to our articles;  In time we’ll launch our discussion forum for you to use if you wish to extend the debate  and we’d also like to invite you to write your own articles for us to publish.

I look forward to providing you with this new resource and hope it can grow into a service we all use on a regular basis. So please feel free to send me your suggestions and ideas.

All the best
Liam
