Pegida UK Puts Photos of Anti-Fascist Protestors on Redwatch

Golding and the stormtroopers of Britain First aren’t the only Far Rightists, who want to publish the names and addresses of anti-Fascist protestors. According to EDL News, an anti-EDL site, Pegida UK have also posted up pictures of the protestors against the Pegida UK demonstration in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne the other week on Redwatch. The Pegida demonstration was attended by members of the NF, the EDL and the Golden Dawn from Greece.

The article notes that Redwatch’s slogan is “Remember places, traitors’ faces, they’ll all pay for their crimes”, taken from the lyrics of Ian Stuart Donaldson, a neo-Nazi musician, who was killed in a car crash in 1993.

The article also notes the various threats and assaults to protestors and Leftists, who have appeared on Redwatch’s hate list. Dipu Ahad, the protest’s organiser, had received threats against him even before the counter-demonstration. Merseyside TUC organiser and Respect candidate Alec McFadden was also threatened and assaulted after Redwatch put up his details. In 2006 a Polish anti-Fascist was attacked, after the Polish version of the site put up his details.

Redwatch, according to Hope Not Hate, is run by Kevin Watmough, an NF stormtrooper, who campaigned for the release of Martyn Gilleard, a neo-Nazi who in 2008 was convicted of making bombs to use against Jews and Muslims. Gilleard was also a paedo, who had downloaded 39,000 indecent images of children.

This is highly ironic, considering that the Far Right claims to be protecting innocent British children from predatory Muslims. In fact a number of members of the BNP and the NF have convictions for child abuse.
