Far Right Left Humiliated After Aarhus Conference

As an estimated 160 far right supporter gathered in Aarhus, Denmark today for an English Defence League (EDL) led conference to build a pan-European movement against what they see as problems caused by growing Islamification of Europe, they found themselves outnumbered more than 20 to 1 by the 4,000 Anti-Fascists. The anti-fascist mobilisation and rally saw members groups such as Unite Against Fascism (UAF) and Anti-Fascist Action (Antifa) from across Europe stand up against far-right extremism and racism.

The events were largely skirmish free despite police fearing violence with Danish members of Antifa, the group believed to be heavily involved in violence which followed the eviction of squatters from a Copenhagen youth centre in 2006, planing to take part in the anti-EDL march. It was clear though that the tense atmosphere around the proceedings was only amplified by the start of the trial this month of Anders Behring Breivik, the far-right extremist and anti-Islamist who confessed to the murder of 77 people in Norway last July.

The EDL plan to have a national mobilisation in their birthplace, Luton on May 5th. After today it will be clear to Tommy Robinson and his far right thugs that Britain’s anti-fascists will be ready to meet the, on the streets.
